It doesn’t matter what type of furniture you may choose for your living room, but the sofa is probably the most important one. It is the anchor piece that we simply can’t function without. Design trends have come and gone but the sofa has remained a constant, specially the best quality sectional sofas.
Buying a new one these days can prove to be a tough task given the wide variety of options available in terms of fabrics, colors and styles to choose from. But thanks to our carefully curated list of the trending styles for 2021 that we have put together, it should be an easy enough task for you. Read on to find out.
1. Stylish Layout
An emerging trend that had emerged in 2021 is continuing to gain popularity in 2021 as well. The modern sofa is all about fabulous fluting designs. Intricate pleatings and quilting techniques combined with unconventional upholstery are creating whole new creative looks.
Some of our personal favorite stylish designs that are seen to be grabbing attention these days include:
- Classic or diamond-shaped screeds.
- Contrasting textures and colors, especially with bold colors.
- Metal rivets helping in emphasizing the furniture lines.
- Metal inserts, preferably of chrome, brass or steel.
- Wooden elements in the decorations of armrests.
2. Comfort Technology
The overall trend this year is that we are looking for comfortable sofas to sink after a long day of work. But at the same time, they must also look stylish enough to grab eyeballs. So move over matching sets because it is the year for comfortably vibrant sofa sets through different textures, fabrics and colors.
Fortunately, modern technology has actually made it possible to give us all of that. These days comfort and functionality come hand in hand with sofa sets. Some models that have made an almost revolutionary impact in this field are:
- Lower-back heating.
- Folding and swiveling options to give you your desired comfortable position.
- Electrically adjustable footrests, backrests and armrests.
3. A Vintage Touch
It is a blast from the past and quite unexpected. There has been an increased inclination towards vintage designs as people are trying to go for more classic designs with a timeless feel.
While it may not be possible for everyone to actually get themselves an authentic vintage sofa they can still get themselves one of a classic design. Thanks to this re-emerging trend furniture brands have been busy recreating entire collections that reflect those that were relevant towards the last century.
Those of you who are true vintage or classic aficionados should especially consider going for one of these designs that we have hand-picked for you.
This model comes with an inimitable and characteristic curvature of the back, along with small armrests and moderate proportions.
The bold outlook it creates with its dark and rich colors in addition to rounded armrests and cleverly textured upholstery is what has brought this classic design back in vogue.
Although this model was all the rage back in the 1920s, it has now slowly found its way back into popularity in the 21st century. Now its high and rigid backrests forming a single long line makes them perfectly blend into rustic or eclectic interiors.
4.Smooth and Rounded
Although much may have changed in terms of sofa trends, one thing has still remained—the persistence of precise and geometric forms of upholstery is still noticeable in the sofas of today.
The most prominent of these are linear and angular models that come with rectangular armrests. But instead of making the furniture lines too prominent, designers are seen to be softening them instead. This has given rise to the smooth and rounded sofas of 2021 that are seen to perfectly co-exist with cozy or equally sharp interior items.
But the most ultimate objective of sofas is to be able to provide maximum comfort to their owners. Regardless of whether you live alone or with family and whether you rarely spend much time at home, the sofa you choose depends on your taste and priorities.
But even more importantly it depends on the level of comfort you need and which model will be able to grant you exactly that.
