Uncluttered rooms and open space are the theme for 2015. I've mentioned in point 15 that as apartments and houses are generally becoming smaller in size due to housing shortages and population explosions, the furniture within the house also has to adapt with the size of the house. This trend, in that sense is a double edged sword, where uncluttered and open meets smaller apartments and houses.
If you've read some of our other trend articles, you'll have seen that light toned woods are popular all around the house in 2014, therefore it's no surprise that they're making a triumphant statement in the furniture market. We're seeing high quality and durable light woods such as oak making a strong statement in the market. The great thing about this trend is that it's difficult to go wrong, as natural is beautiful and light toned woods can be used to craft any type of furniture.
