Latest Trends In Living Room Furniture
 
Living room Melbourne
 
Contemporary living rooms have been transformed by the move to open plan living, with clean lines and minimal clutter dominating this space. The emphasis is on enhancing the interaction of family life, with the kitchen, dining and living areas all sharing space or flowing into one another. The trend is definitely toward an uncluttered look that fits in with the sleek minimalist lines of the modern home. For an insight into the furniture that inhabits these spaces, hipages caught up with Eliza Williams from Beyond Furniture.

What are the current colour trends for interiors?

¡°We are seeing a range of greys on our leather sofas, from soft tones through to darker greys. This is great for the modern family home, as it suits contemporary forms, yet is warm and more serviceable than the minimalist whites of the past few years.  Complementing this is the neutral palette of white and beige, finished in high gloss that reflects the continuing influence of modern gadgets. Layered over this are injections of dark, glossy grey and textured chocolate veneer for warmth and moodiness, with hints of mustard yellow for spunk and liveliness.¡±

Which of your living room products are ¡®hot¡¯ right now?

¡°We currently have a range of modular wall units, including the Viano and Genova, that embody the design principles of modern, clean simple lines, yet have the practicality of integrating media, concealed storage and open shelving for displaying show pieces.  With the modular design they offer versatility, as they are able to be customised to suit individual customers needs.  The Bronte and the Vedi wall units have also been a hit - their wide range of sizes means they fulfil a variety of needs, offering huge amounts of storage, with sliding glass panels for hiding clutter and optional built in media storage.  The range of colours means our customers can select something punchy, modern and vibrant with contrasting panels of colour, or something neutral and streamlined, as an economic and free-standing alternative to custom made joinery for the home.¡±

Veneers seem to dominate modern furniture ¨C can you tell us more about them?

¡°A veneer is simply a thin layer of timber with an attractive grain, which is then glued or bonded to another surface. Modern technology has totally transformed this technique ¨C with laser processes ensuring high quality control and precision cutting. Glues are also much stronger and durable. At the end of the day these techniques guarantee that veneered furniture is as visually appealing and durable as solid timber furniture. They are currently hugely popular in modern furniture as they embody the current design trend for expressing materiality and craftsmanship, and they offer a sustainable alternative to some solid timbers.¡±

How much attention do you pay to the quality of materials?

¡°The quality of the materials and the quality of our range of furniture is a main priority for us. Our customers demand high quality from us and we pride ourselves upon meeting their expectations.  We use quality products and materials throughout our range. This includes our veneers which are grade A and AA ¨C the highest global standard; and we use German made adhesive and an attachment process that is stronger than standard timber. The paint is also of a high standard, and resilient to scratching and cracking; as is the selection of metals which are high end brushed, sandblasted and anodised aluminium.¡±

What buying tips do you have for your customers?

¡°When you go shopping it is best if you have a clear idea of your basic requirements, including storage needs, what you want the piece of furniture to achieve and a general idea for look and style.  It is also a good idea to have measured up your space, including windows and doors in the room if you are able.  We encourage our customers to bring photos, material samples and room measurements, so our interior trained staff can assist customers to find a unit that meets their requirements.¡±

What about buying living room furniture?

¡°The living room is the heart of the modern home and the best examples are always the rooms that are functional, promote life and interaction and express their owner¡¯s personality while looking beautiful.  We see our furniture as the framework to our customer¡¯s home; it offers considered function for modern lifestyles, comfort and versatility in our lounges and sofas, concealed storage for life¡¯s ¡®stuff¡¯ and customisable solutions for our customers to select what works best for their family.   With this attitude in mind, we recommend choosing neutral colours for the main pieces, like the sofa, then selecting colourful cushions, which can be updated as your mood changes. The units should be streamlined, clean and highly functional to complement what you display in them. Every piece of furniture you select should complement your lifestyle in some way.¡±

Finally, have you identified any trends for the future?

¡°The demands from our customers are for ever more versatility, adaptability, increased function and clean contemporary styles.  People¡¯s homes are getting smaller and consequently need to be smarter. Families are also more mobile ¨C as they move between jobs, homes and even cities they require furniture that can go with them, adapt with them and always complement their lifestyle.  We see the next few years as being an expansion on modular, yet streamlined designs, with a return to functionality.  In terms of materials and colours, we foresee the continued use of neutrals and warm grey tones, with the introduction of complementing metallic and chrome accessories and lighting, and bold feature colours in yellows, royal blues and bright orange.¡±
