Hands up if you agree that this year is already considered more #stayhome than hang out!. So we are helping you with a heads-up into some of the hot homewares trends in 2020 that might just have already caught the eye of your potential customers.
This year, people are gravitating towards minimalist and eco-friendly homewares to feel closer to nature. The first hot homewares trend in 2020 is rattan and wicker furniture and decor.
Rattan and wicker are designed for both inside and outside. Wicker is a form of weaving, whereas rattan is a flexible, fibrous plant. But both are lightweight and durable which can help add a sense of casualness to a room.
Interior designer Nicole Fuller told Elle Décor: "It warmly reminds me of my childhood and has evolved in fresh and exciting ways whether in chairs, tables, or lighting. It is the perfect layer to balance modern and traditional style."
Because of its vintage roots and natural fibres, rattan and wicker works in every living space. It’s not hard to find them trending on Pinterest in home decor boards and they are easy to find in furniture stores around the world, such as Ikea or Anthropologie. Follow those brands’ Instagram feeds for more ideas about cool home and giftware items.
Besides rattan and wicker, cozy fabrics, another hot homewares trend in 2020, are far from out of style this year. Like the word “cozy”, they provide a feeling of warmth and comfort to living spaces.
Breeze Giannasio Interiors asserts that comfy fabrics will be everywhere in the coming year. "Instead of luxe grand velvet, we'll see shearling, imperfect leathers, and soft-textured mohairs."
Your customers can create a warm and cozy house by selecting a warm colour tone, blending old and new details in design, incorporating wood elements or adding texture. If it’s too hard to find giftware that is minimalist but still luxurious, do not hesitate to try wood units or cozy flannels. From traditional to modern style, cozy fabrics always work in every setting.
Ceramics combined with wood texture or warm metals make an ideal gift idea.
Look to create a feel your customers find cozy when they walk into your store.
Cozy fabrics and rattan and wicker bring a minimalist, elegant and trendy feel for living spaces.
