Millennial Furniture Trend Expect in 2020admin abba
In 2020, the world population, especially those who living in urban areas would prefer to live in smaller homes. Increasingly the price of the land, making them (especially millennials) build houses with a more limited number of rooms.
Some places or formal rooms seem to be missing from modern homes nowadays. Existing rooms will be made more functional in order to save land and house construction costs. With limited land and space, they will be more selective in choosing furniture. They will prioritize furniture that is functional and tends to be small in size to save the space.
Wondering what kinds of furniture trends can we expect to see next year especially for millennial generation? In fact, Millennials spend less on furniture than the older generations. Furniture and bedding account for 4.5% of Millennials’ spending (vs. 7.3% of Gen X; 10% of Boomers; 9.4% of Traditionalists). Limited financial resources and increased mobility are two reasons Millennials are unwilling to invest in long-term furniture purchases.
So that’s why understanding the priorities and preferences of millenials buyers in furniture is important to give them an option. Our top-three furniture trends will give you an idea of what’s going to be hot in 2020.
Smaller homes will have less space for furniture. Thus, you will need pieces that are multi-functional like beds with drawer storage or desks with shelves up top. The rise of multifunctional furniture is a trend that may involuntarily contribute towards sustainable living and will certainly be a popular one among people who believe in practices like minimalism and mindfulness.
However, designers working with multifunctional furniture will face a big challenge – ensuring the pieces are not just functionally fitting but visually interesting as well.
In addition to this, most of us have started focusing on mental well-being through lifestyle practices like yoga and minimalism which support the idea of mindful interiors. Taking all this into consideration, we might see mindful decor become a trend in the coming years. If it’s a multi-functional piece of furniture with storage options, even better.
Very conscious of their carbon footprint, Millennials embrace the ethos that less is more. Modern living philosophies like KonMari, which urges you to identify what brings you joy and get rid of anything that does not, and Swedish death cleaning, which involves cutting the clutter in your environment to make sorting easier for the loved ones you leave behind (morbid we know), have helped nurture a culture of minimalism.
In many ways, a mess is very last-generation. Since the present generation is in a habit of experimenting with their standards of living, they prefer furniture that hastens their shifting process. The prime reasons for this frequent home relocation are changes in employment and rental sectors.
The true worth of any minimalist furniture lies in the concept of embellishment reduction without hampering its innate usefulness and praticality. The need of the hour is best served when an authentic, natural design is embedded with the basic functionalism to generate furniture of minimalist character.
HIGH-TECH FEATURES IN SMART FURNITURE
As our daily necessities get smarter, it should come as no surprise that furniture is advancing too. The pieces you bring home are meant to be functional and comfortable above all, and the addition of smart features will only make life easier. From sectionals, sofas and chairs, to bedroom nightstands, headboards and chests, the list of designs with high-tech upgrades goes on.
For the example our needs to USB Ports, we are permanently attached to smart devices. That’s why we need charging stations in convenient locations. And what could be more convenient than that chair you’re sitting on or the nightstand right by your bed? More and more designs are coming equipped with USB ports, so you never have to worry about low battery again.
And the next is cord management, many nightstands, media chests and TV stands come with cord management holes or wire cutouts that allow you to hide and organize the chaos that comes with your media equipment. There’s no bigger eyesore or design distraction than a bunch of tangled cords, and these small but mighty holes help manage all that mess and stress.
The last is touch lighting, when you get up in the middle of the night and need a light, imagine simply touching a sensor in the back of your nightstand to turn your table lamp on. That’s how easy it is when your nightstand has a lamp assist feature. These nightstands typically have 3 power outlets – 2 you can plug other items into, and 1 for your lamp, which connects to an easy-to-reach touch sensor strip or button.
