The One Home Trend We’re Leaning Into This Year (And We’re Just As Surprised As You)
This year, we all experienced sacrifice, including time with our family and friends, travel and outings to our favorite restaurants, bars, theaters and salons. But we adapted by transitioning those good times into our home. From beauty to wellness to fashion, we’ve seen an uptick in at-home treatments, products and styles that fit into our new normal. And, of course, décor is no different.
Looking back on recent years, clean lines, neutral palettes and mid-century influence dominated. But looking forward at 2021, we see a shift toward styling that focuses exclusively on comfort. Rooms designed to embrace the entertainment we miss so much rather than conceal it, an abundance of seating that invites the entire family to sink in and colorful accents that make being at home feel joyful—and look great on a Zoom screen.
How do you accomplish this look, you ask? High-tech furniture that marries comfort, style and function. Specifically: Sofas. And yes, we’re just as surprised as you are. But the thing is, the time for sacrifice is over, because when it comes to your home, you really can have it all. The perfect recliner for movie night? Built-in charging ports? Chic leather and dare we say, cupholders? Yep, we’re going all in on comfort tech in any space that’s home to movie night, game night and all of the entertaining in between. Below, three pieces to help you get in on the trend, all of which are Designer Looks at American Signature Furniture—the place to shop for designer looks without the designer prices.
