Interior design trends are constantly changing, and that means you have to be ever-vigilant if you intend to keep up. But with Furniture Fitouts, you don’t have to worry about whether your interior reflects the latest fashion. Our interior designers are constantly reviewing the latest journals and style blogs to ensure that we have up-to-the-minute advice on how to fitout and decorate your home.
But staying on the leading edge of interior design means that you have to be ready to let go of those trends that have already run their course. In this post, we’re going to highlight a few design trends that are way past their use-by date.
- Macramé Cords
Macramé is the art of knotting cords to create decorative shapes and designs. It was popular in the 1960s and occasionally sees a resurgence. That said, macramé has definitely run its course. With that in mind, if you’re looking for creative ways to hang potted plants or other design fixtures, consider looking into other options, such as leather straps or metallic pieces.
- Serge Mouille Lamps
These metallic lamps with long arms that extend over the space you are illuminating are stunning design pieces. The problem is that they’ve been copied and ripped off over and over again – to the extent that you can hardly set foot in an Australian home without seeing an imitation. While these lamps still have serious design clout, it’s safe to say that they’ve been overdone for the time being. Let the current phase pass, and the genuine Serge Mouille lamps will most likely still be around.
- Pineapple-Inspired Decorations
Everyone loves a relaxing tropical vibe. That’s why pineapple-inspired design elements have become such a hot commodity in Australia. But the truth is that this motif has more than run its course. These days, you’ll find images of pineapples everywhere – from lampshades to refrigerator magnets. It’s probably safe to say that you can leave this kitschy fad out of your next interior redesign.
- Chevron Designs
The chevron design is a woven, v-shaped print that has really taken over home interiors over the past few years. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this design motif, except that it has found its way into virtually all corners of life. The team at Furniture Fitouts believe it’s time to put this particular design to rest.
- Brass Everything
Brass fixtures have seen an astonishing increase in popularity over the past year or two. If you’re looking at a metallic fixture installed in a relatively new home, then there’s a good chance it is made from brass. The problem is that too much brass comes off as a bit overdone. A little bit goes a long way. And at this stage of the game, it’s probably safe to say that we can all afford to give brass a breather.
