Scandinavian design rules!
Minimalism makes space in our living rooms and in the living areas of the house, as has already happened this year: so again, less furnishings, less decorations, more open and large spaces. Here’s what we’ll see shortly in the furniture magazines: the open spaces will be further revalued and enhanced, with minimal furniture, where only in need will be furniture. One of the most common materials in furniture stores will be glass, which will be used for a great variety of accessories and knick-knacks: this material will undoubtedly be among the absolute protagonists of next year, together with wood, cast iron and iron. Exactly, because we will see the ethnic and industrial styles prevailing.
The next will be a year made of mix, which see styles and influences come from different environments and eras, blend and embrace in elegant and sophisticated balances, for personalized and unique environments. In fact, although minimal is the protagonist of this new year, it will be alternated, and sometimes combined, elements of furniture that have nothing to do with the famous Nordic style, but that if approached carefully and with the right aesthetic eye, will be able to give refinement and style to all rooms of the house. Modern tables, combined with ethnic bookcases orcast-iron tables under golden chandeliers: this is the new challenge for anyone who wants or needs to give a new touch to their home.

Finally, the timeless black and white, which will be matched in an interesting way, with strong contrasts So be ready to greet the romantic 2018 to look forward to a new year, certainly more decisive and intense.
