Furnishing trends for 2019: what you like is in fashion. A trend that leaves everyone free to cultivate creativity.
A trend that comes from international fairs and leaves everyone free to cultivate their creativity. Relying on craftsmanship and a mix of styles. With only one firm point: the elegance of solid wood.
Enough with furniture that follows a single trend. Whether it’s modern, urban, Scandinavian, artisanal, shabby chic, classic, everything is allowed as long as it’s pleasing to the end consumer and follows his individuality and creativity. It seems the simplest of conclusions, but from the latest trade fairs – first and foremost Tendence 2018 , the international consumer goods fair held in Germany – this is the most interesting fact that emerges: what you like is in fashion!
In this pot pourri of aesthetic paths, cultures, traditions, materials and fantasies are mixed together to highlight craftsmanship, the beauty of imperfection (which makes an object unique), as well as the origin and history of products, designs and creators. And if you want to find the lowest common denominator that brings all these trends together, this is precisely the rediscovery of techniques and craftsmanship that are becoming extinct and that can give objects a very special tactility: the 2019 furniture wants to be caressed, with the eye but also with the hand. Today’s design approach therefore requires a high quality of details, finishes and workmanship that can lead to the recovery, where possible, of ancient know-how.

The material that dominates this explosion of craftsmanship, creativity and mix of styles and cultures is solid wood, better if raw or natural to reveal the imperfections that give the furniture variety and uniqueness. A wooden piece of furniture is in fact an evergreen, it creates a perfect contrast with the more urban styles and integrates perfectly with the more traditional ones, giving warmth but also elegance and a feeling of harmony to the environment.
In wood furniture, the sobriety of the colour is combined with the elegance of the shape and the refinement of the design in order to add prestige to the furnishing solutions. Wood becomes the protagonist in handcrafted furniture, where manual processes create that touch of exclusivity and the advantage of being able to exploit every space in the most suitable way for your needs. Solid wood is the material that places among its priorities the sustainable approach of production, the natural and healthy aspects of materials, a simple, effective design, but not without refinement.
What are the most popular and best-selling solid wood design furniture? Italian companies such as Domus Artis uses this precious material for the production of handcrafted dining and kitchen tables. Other luxury companies, such as Cattelan Italia and Bonaldo have created high level iconic products that have had great success at the international level. The choice is very wide; from handcrafted products to exclusive luxury. The important thing is that you like it and that it matches the environment, giving also a touch of warmth to the space without compromising the visual impact.
