The way we decorate our abodes reveals a lot about our personality quirks and eccentricities. Even if some of us do the interiors ourselves and some others hire interior decorators to do the dirty work, it’s still a must that we, as homeowners, know the latest trends in furniture and designs, if we are to keep up with the times. For this particular post, let’s have a run-down of what the Asian furniture trend is all about this coming new year, 2011.
Asian Interior Designing Style
Asian furniture has always exuded a quiet, peaceful appeal. Whether you choose Chinese furniture or any other Oriental furniture, the 2011 trend is leaning towards the natural and tropical look. As such, hardwood furniture, bamboo furnishings and natural home accessories will dominate this year. Asian rugs, decorating panels featuring scenes about Asian history and nature will be of utmost importance. Low platform beds will flourish; bamboo roll ups as house windows will be used as an alternative to curtains; white, black, gold, ruby and emerald colors inside the home will more than thrive.
Tropical Furniture Design
The tropical look of the upcoming season reminds us of the easy life — the sea, sand, sky all within our reach. Hence, blue and green colors will also sit well with the rest of the tropical theme while beige, light and dark brown will be best used in furniture. This is where wicker furniture come in. As for fabrics to be used in chairs like sofas as well as in beds, cotton and silk will be the trend. Palm plants, seashells and tropical flowers are the accessories that will best complete the look of an Asian tropical home.
Traditional Furniture Design
For the more traditional design style, Asian furniture that offers comfort and relaxation will abound. Oriental furniture featuring clean lines and simple designs will penetrate the market and give even the modern homes a more rustic and relaxing appeal. Because many people these days live in such harried lives, they clamor for space that will allow them to stay still for a while, rejuvenate those tired aching muscles and clear their minds. Traditional Asian furniture will do just that the perfect traditional Chinese furniture pieces will once again take a major piece of the furniture design pie. Thus, red, white and maroon colors will best be use to exude a more laid back and relaxing ambiance.
The Asian furniture trend for 2011 generally speaks of a more relaxed atmosphere inside the home. And because of the ultra modern and busy life people live outside of their houses, this upcoming trend will surely offer the much needed soothing relief and comfort inside the home that only Asian furniture can afford.
