Open floor plan layouts are trending as well as multi-functional furniture pieces. To make the indoor and outdoor space as dynamic as possible, designers create playful forms of sofas and coffee tables, dining tables and chairs, lighting fixtures, screens, and room dividers, storage furniture, shelves and bookcases, decorative accessories. Emphasis is also on the textures of furniture fronts as well as the natural motifs of the wallpaper and decorative fabrics.

When decorating living rooms and dining rooms, it’s trendy to mix and match pieces of furniture of different design styles, colors, materials, shapes, and sizes. For example, all the chairs in the dining room should be different. Likewise, seating sets can be made up of armchairs and two-seater sofas that are opposite in style or color.
