Spring/Summer 2018 Home Decor: Top 5 Trends
On one hand, there’s luxe velvet, graphic shapes and lots of brass. On the other, it’s all about pure lines and a neutral palette. From art deco-inspired opulence to Scandinavian minimalism, 2018 home décor trends are decidedly all over the map. Let’s unpack, shall we?
Art Deco Glamour
We saw glimmers of a comeback in 2017 but this year, Art Deco is back with a vengeance: Think geometric shapes, gleaming brass, gilded accents and rich jewel tones. A stunning example of this maximalist aesthetic is Maison Corbeil’s Balzac table, which boasts a bold architectural base and brass-coloured top. To soften its angles and double down on the luxe look, add Loren chairs in padded velvet.
This plush fabric the epitome of Art Deco—and yes, it looks amazing in a living room. Both elegant and cozy, it works everywhere from armchairs and sofas to throw pillows and drapery. Case in point? The Oscar sofa by Maison Corbeil, a Chesterfield-inspired piece (hello, iconic tufted detailing) with contemporary appeal, thanks to angular lines.
Forever Fifty Shades
Anthracite, slate, dove, silver… No matter what you call it, grey is the cool modern neutral par excellence. That being said, pearly iterations work especially well to create a soft, restful ambiance in the bedroom. Need a standout piece? Look no further than the Maison Corbeil Benjamin bed, which features a statement-making headboard (that just happens to be perfect for reading) plus hidden storage—always a bonus.
Marble isn’t going anywhere. In fact, the mottled stone continues to inspire designers, including François Caron, the Quebec based talent behind the Diamond table: A faux marble tabletop perched atop a multifaceted, diamond-inspired metal base. This gem is a sure-fire stunner in any dining room.
With unstructured styles and oversized, detachable cushions, couches like Maison Corbeil’s Élément offer the ultimate in creativity and versatility. Incidentally, that flexibility is exactly what today’s consumer—not to mention top interior designers!—are after. Because pieces are sold separately and the backs are easy to remove, you can create a customized look to suit your mood and space. Loveseat, armchair, daybed… The options are endless.
