Interior Trend 4: Architectural Structures
This is the most striking of our interior design trends 2020. It has a similar look to the Industrial trend, with an emphasis on sweeping, bold shapes and a mix of cool and warm materials – natural woods and concrete with metal and glass.
Think distressed brickwork as a backdrop, or walls in rich shades of amber and ochre. Or go monochromatic with whites and greys. In terms of accessories, take a ‘less is more’ approach, with just a few carefully considered sculptural pieces to add character.
Consider an extending dining table with a concrete-look top and a dramatic, dark grey metal X-frame base, a statement piece combining hardwearing practicality with a chic and contemporary vibe. In the living room, choose a shelving unit with a metal frame and wooden shelves made from reclaimed railway sleepers, or a simple wooden coffee table in oak or walnut with clean lines, splayed legs and a slightly retro feel.
