Design & Furniture Trends of Fall/Winter 2018-Make your office a place people actually want to visit


A common misconception about the interior design world is that we don’t follow or enact the changing style and color trends like say the fashion industry might. Like all creative fields, interior design must constantly evolve and change in order to meet the artistic, structural and aesthetic needs of any environment. Trends influence these designs in space and furniture as much as they do design in any other type of business.


“Trend: a general direction in which something is developing or changing.”

These trends can include color, technology, shape and endless other design aspects and can come about from societal changes or simply just time. The beauty of trends is that there is something new always coming and adding to the already dynamic world of design.


Because these trends do heavily influence interiors, it is important to know which ones are coming up so you know the best furniture investment for the future. Not to mention, it can’t hurt to look as up to date and ‘in the know’ as you can- no matter what industry that might be.

Buying for your home or office this year? Be sure to familiarize yourself with these top furniture trends of fall/winter 2018.
