2015 has been an interesting year in furniture design. I am given the pleasure of updating manufacturer profile pages with new products, and attending trade shows where manufacturers showcase their newest pieces. Being relatively new to the wholesale market, it has been very interesting getting the opportunity to follow furniture trends over the year,(and noticing how out of touch I am with my apartment furniture).
As I was browsing the booths at the 2015 All American Furniture Expo with a friend, I noticed a new stain that had a presence in multiple manufacturer booths. The name of the stain depends on the manufacturer, but it is a grey, slate shade. One of our featured manufacturers, Elm Crest Furniture, features this color in their new line, and now offers “Antique Slate,” as an option on their multiple lines.
I also noticed an increase in live edge hardwood tables, often reinforced with bow tie splines. These pieces feature a rough-cut look and feel around the edges, and a smooth, sanded top. These tables are a perfect accent to rustic design themes that have been gaining popularity in the last few years.
These are a few of the design themes I’ve noticed during 2015, what do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comment section and, and check out our “Indoor Furniture” category to browse innovative manufacturers of American-made furniture!
