Trends Furniture 2024 – Like everything else, furniture designs also change trends every year. Considering that we are now at the end of 2023, at the turn of the year, of course the 2024 furniture design trends will also change from previous years. According to product designers, furniture design trends in 2024 will be divided into three. First, namely furniture that is unique but comfortable, and with non-standard and rounded shapes, such as the neotenic style.
Eco Friendly Furniture
Second, it is more visible from the production process and furniture materials used. Apart from user comfort, Responsible design will also become a furniture trend in 2024, namely paying attention to environmental and social aspects. Nowadays, many people are aware of environmental and social conditions. Therefore, they choose furniture that is social friendly and eco friendly. By choosing this they are aware of its huge impact.
Then the third trend is, handmade furniture, aka made with the touch of the hand, aka artisan products. Many people really like handmade furniture, which of course makes the products unique, neat and of good quality. Because they are made carefully one by one by craftsmen with experienced skills, of course.
Apart from the three things above, other furniture designers are of the opinion that currently many people are looking for furniture not based on style, shape or aesthetic design. However, it is more about furniture that has quality, value and sensibility. And a very hot trend right now is environmentally friendly design. Currently, many people are mistaken in defining sustainability, because the benchmarks are still not clearly defined.
Sustainability Material and Products
In furniture, sustainability can be interpreted through design, manufacturing, supply chain, packaging, appearance, communication, and so on. Many furniture factories in several countries have created added value into their furniture products, but by being more aware of the environmental impact, carbon emission footprint in the production process and more transparency in the supply chain. Which means where the material comes from, how it is processed, and what the social and environmental impacts are, so that customers will assess and choose which product they will choose.
After the pandemic, many people questioned globalization, it has been proven that globalization uses a lot of energy. Globalization has also made a lot of furniture designs so that all styles can be absorbed. Because of this, diversity of design, concept, story telling, even culture, are all considered “lost.” So, there is a post-globalization trend (which directs everything) to become local, because it has been proven that everything cannot be globalized and there are many negative impacts from globalization.
Furniture Design Trends
So, these designs again try to dig into the roots, find out where everything comes from, and try to optimize what is already around us. In this way, designs can become more diverse, unique, more authentic and localized. One of the factors influencing the direction of furniture design trends, is climate change. So, furniture design in the world is more focused on natural materials or materials that actually make a bit more effort to reduce energy use. Some are semi-recycled, some are made from plant-based synthetic materials.
Furthermore, social media, such as TikTok, also greatly influences market tastes. People are more willing to display various ‘colors’ and identities to apply to furniture. Over the past 15 years, traditional craftsmanship has increasingly disappeared, and not only in Indonesia, but throughout the world. As a result, the product is without a ‘soul.’ Something made by hand will become something expensive and of high value when the sea of products is dominated by machine-made mass products. Wood is not the only material that will be used to make furniture. Nowadays, the next big thing is rattan, a material that grows faster, is stronger and lasts longer.
Furniture that is comfortable and easy to clean is always a necessity from time to time. The difference is, now there are many choices of materials as options for making furniture. Previously it was just plastic, now plastic can be replaced with something more environmentally friendly. One of them is rattan furniture that has become a hit in recent years. Because it is easy to maintain and easy to clean too.
