bed-621742_640If you’re tired of your furniture or home décor – if you’ve forgotten the last time you bought a new sofa or chair – it’s time to freshen up the look of your home. The good news is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a styling look, especially if you’re a bit of a hoarder. This year, everything old is new again, and that’s good news if you happen to have a few old things lying around. They’re back in style! If your oldie but goodie needs a little TLC, you can call a furniture repair pro in NYC to give it a new lease on life. Take a look at this list of what’s hot, and what’s not, for 2015. 

Color Trends

Classic color combinations like black and white are hot this year, with gray a popular neutral. The olive greens, rusts and oranges popular in the 70’s are making a comeback, and also the neons and pastels of the ‘80s – pale pinks and turquoises punctuated with neon accents: bright blue, purple, greens and oranges. Deep cobalts and navy blues are also on trend.

Artisan Chic

Mass produced is out this year, and handmade is in. The trend is furniture and décor that has an antique or authentic look, as opposed to faux. Textures are hot: nubby, furry, fuzzy, glazed, asymmetrical, braided, beaded or knitted things are all the rage. If you’re artsy crafty, this is the year to show off your talents in wood, knits and metals. The macramé and fringe of the ‘70s is in fashion again for home décor, as is gold finish hardware. Cowhide rugs and leather sofas and chairs are hot accessories to give a spare, modern space a warm counterpoint.

The Look

Mid-century modern pieces continue to be popular and on trend, but mix and match is the fashion now. If you have pieces that don’t match, even from different decades, you don’t have to call the furniture movers – work that eclectic vibe, because it’s in now! This trend also applies to textiles, as well as furniture. Contrasting patterns, colors and even finishes are living happily side by side in all the decorating mags.

Get The Trend

The 2015 décor trends are budget-friendly, because you can get the look without spending a fortune at a showroom. This retro-inspired, mix and match look can easily be achieved with what you probably already have in your home. If you feel that your mid-century modern couch needs a facelift, you can freshen it up by having it recovered or even redesigned.  A furniture pro can cover it in a new fabric or leather, or repair broken legs or arms. You don’t even need to move the couch – a furniture pro can perform a convenient sofa disassembly in your home. The pro will move the pieces to the shop, update your sofa, and then reassemble the sofa wherever you want. Your piece will look better than new, with no burdensome transport, and will be more affordable than buying a comparable sofa new. Easy!
