If the past has been sleek and safe, 2019 is bringing in the bold with a variety of rich colors. One of the nice things about this is that furniture with neutral tones pop in front of these bolder backdrops.

3. Bucket/Trough Sinks

Bowl sinks started as a look that was unique but is quickly become dated and impractical. The replacement for these sinks is here in the form of timeless bucket sinks. Also known as trough sinks, these utilitarian sinks bring a classic historically dignified look to any new home.

What is one sure fire way to show that you’re not living in the future? By designing rooms like what you think the future should look like. To combat this faux futuristic look, natural accent pieces and plant life are making their way back into colder spaces. Look for flowers to start popping up where cold steel once was.

7. Vintage Lighting Fixtures

A lot of vintage-era lighting fixtures leave us thinking “what were the designers thinking?” This used to be puzzling but has become a conversation starter. Keep an eye out for funkier lighting styles in the near future.

8. Matte Finished Furniture and Accents
As the shiny futuristic aesthetic begins to fade, softer matte finishes are beginning to take their place. Expect to see many more matte finishes on tables, chairs, walls, and accents.

9. Rich Red
The earlier part of the century played it safe when it came to colors. 20 years later, we’re craving color. Vibrant reds are being brought in to make bland furniture stand out.

10. Geometric Patterned Designs
