Does the new year have you gazing around your home, office, or place of business, seeking a change of scenery? You’re not alone: from colors and patterns to furniture and fixtures, the leading minds in design are weighing in on what will be trendy in interior design in 2019.

1. Boho Chic
The fun, whimsical, hippie-inspired look of Boho fashion has returned for home design in 2019. Still laid-back and relaxed, modern boho also incorporates rich colors and textures that keep the style fresh and interesting. Think leather, clean lined furniture and tighter color palettes paired with hand-painted tiles, vintage textiles and bold wallpaper.
2. Stylish & Sustainable
Sustainability and mindfulness – both in materials and design – remains relevant this year. Consumers have a continuing commitment to examining the source of their design elements, their environmental impact, and the purpose of each piece they incorporate. This includes creating a thoughtful, environmentally-conscious foundation on which to stage other pieces – a perfect role for TFL.
3. Artisanal Accents
Handcrafted pieces (and those that look handcrafted) are extremely popular. This trend is particularly appealing to decorators who seek to use relatively few pieces to customize an otherwise minimalistic space. An increasing interest in patronizing local artisans and vendors also drives interest in artisanal décor; a local farmers and crafters market can be an excellent source of unique options, close to home.
4. Varied Colors and Palettes
This is a great year to express yourself through color, with a wide range of choices currently trending. From pastels to terracotta to various shades of gray, fresh looks on old favorites are revitalizing interiors of both homes and commercial settings. Vibrant greens are also big right now, given their eye-catching, but soothing qualities. Arclin TFL, with its vast array of color options has you covered.
5. Multi-Functional Spaces
As we’ve noted before, more people are seeking living and working spaces that can accommodate a variety of people, tasks, and needs. Consumers are demonstrating a growing interest in multi-use furniture (the Murphy Bed is making a comeback!) and in living/working areas that can do double duty.
Hygge, a Scandinavian concept of comfort and coziness, is continuing to gain visibility in 2019 – especially in those regions dealing with cold winter weather. While this may bring to mind chunky sweaters and curling up under blankets, modern hygge interior design seeks to blend soft luxury with functionality. By keeping an eye to comfort in everything from colors to fabrics to furniture shape, hygge design creates cozy spaces that are still workable and attractive.
7. Natural Finishes
Materials made from, or that look like, stone and wood are being used for their organic feel. Creating a perfect backdrop for any design motif and accessories, these materials set the stage for a spectrum of interior options. Arclin’s woodgrains and stone options are a perfect fit for this trend.
8. Bold Kitchens
Kitchens dominated by clean lines, white backdrops, and lots of stainless steel may be taking a backseat to bolder, more personal preparation and eating spaces. New thoughts in kitchen design seek to use visually compelling accessories and to blend kitchen design more seamlessly with the rest of the home, incorporating textiles and furniture pieces more commonly seen in living spaces.
While green color palettes are getting a nod in 2019, so too are “real” greens, in the form of decorative houseplants. Regardless of the size or purpose of a space, plants add an organic, natural touch. Consumers can mix trends by potting their plants in artisanal vessels and by incorporating them into less-expected places, such as kitchens.
10. Soft, Ambient Lighting
As more and more workers and homeowners move away from harsh, fluorescent lighting, soft illumination concepts are increasingly sought. Lampshades with opaque glass and design options like lighting rooms from below rather than above are expected to been seen more in 2019.
