There are many trends to think about in 2019 when decorating and designing a home.

Lauren Harris, Senior Designer at DFS took a moment out of her day designing sofas in to let us in on the trends we can expect to see this year.

When it comes to colour, there’s a move towards warm hues such as rust, burnt orange and terracotta, and earth tones are predicted to be a big trend for 2019.

Lauren said: “We recently worked with Dulux to create a limited edition of our popular Zania modular sofa, centred around the Dulux 2019 Colour of the Year, Spiced Honey, and colours from Dulux's Think palette, new for 2019.”

Work this look by dressing the sofa with a range of tactile cushions in complementary shades to create a soothing, inviting place to relax.

Velvet will remain huge for 2019 but boucle will take the top spot this year. She said: “We're working on ranges that will use boucle fabrics to offer a tactile and contemporary edge. Textured fabrics were everywhere at last year's Salone Del Mobile international design show, and at our design studio, we're working up designs that will mix and layer different textured fabrics within single pieces, to reflect this trend.”

Botanical and floral prints remained popular throughout 2018 and this trend is set to continue in 2019, in particular bright, busy flower head motifs. The Joules Cambridge sofa offers a classic form and exquisite detailing which will be a hit with those who like a traditional look, while its bold floral print and bright shades keep it on trend.

Use the sofa as your colour palette for a fun and colourful look, or keep the walls and floors neutral to make the sofa the star of the show.

Lauren said: “We're seeing more and more people mix and match their furniture to create a personalised, eclectic look. Our research has shown that around one in five customers have ditched the matching three-piece suite in favour of a mix and match approach."

The Peace Accent chair is a great option for this trend, as it comes in a choice of five fabrics and 31 shades, along with a choice of four feet colours, so you can select the perfect combination for your look.
