It’s a new year and that means we’re seeing new interior design trends popping up left and right. So, what does 2022 mean for design? So far, we’re seeing a huge emphasis on combining comfort, practicality, and style. Gone are the days of sacrificing fashion for function. So, if you’re looking to purchase a sofa in 2022, here are some aspects to consider to ensure that your sofa is on trend for the year.
2022 is the year of functionality. We’re seeing multi-purpose and practical furniture being incorporated into home design in a stylish way. The modular sofa fits this sentiment as it is customizable to your space and able to be moved or switched as your needs change. If you have an odd-sized room or interesting layout, a modular sofa may be the best option for you. They often come with a chaise lounge option as well for added comfort and versatility.
All aspects of design are taking an eco-friendly turn in 2022. We are trying to be stylish and save the planet at the same time, and sofas made of sustainable and ethically sourced materials help accomplish this goal. Before falling in love with a sofa, take a moment to see what material it is made of and if the company is following the eco-friendly movement. It used to be extremely difficult to find fashionable furniture that was also sustainable, but since the movement has gained popularity there are more options than ever!
Neutral colors will be all the rage for sofas in 2022. It’s not only stylish, but it’s also simple and functional. A sofa is no small investment, and it’s nice to know that if you’d like to change the design of your living room you won’t have to buy a new sofa since neutral colors can complement many design styles. Some of the most popular colors for this year include:
- Light Gray
- Gray Blue
- Navy Blue
Comfort is a very important factor to consider when purchasing sofas in 2022. Choosing a soft fabric that feels nice on the skin and making sure your sofa has plush, wide cushions help ensure your comfort. Including many throw pillows that complement the shape and color of the sofa will also add to the comfort level and overall style of the piece.
A sofa is often the centerpiece of a living room, and many people are choosing to highlight that in 2022 by selecting a sofa made of interesting, geometric shapes. Think all rounded corners, or completely straight and angular. These sofas, while still being functional, add visual interest into the center of the room. They serve as an art piece that you also happen to be able to sit on.
Especially for families with children, storage is essential in a sofa for 2022. Think of the wasted space if you have a large sofa in your living room that doesn’t offer any additional storage. Most sofas add storage compartments into the chaise lounge portion, allowing you to store extra pillows, blankets, toys, games, or other items you don’t have space for.
