Colour, cosiness, and comfort
As we’re heading into autumn and the weather slowly starts cooling down, new furniture trends are emerging with a clear central theme — colour, cosiness, and comfort. We’ve rounded up our favourite autumn design trends for furniture, fabric, and styling below, along with a few tips on how to incorporate these trends into your Woodbender furniture pieces.
Autumn 2022 is all about colour, with a specific focus on warm, earthy tones that personify the feeling of curling up next to the fireplace. Burnt orange and amber evoke the feel of a roaring fire, while dark wood details add a luxuriously rich note to any interior or furniture piece. Use textiles to complete the look by tying together autumnal accents and playful patterns. You can specify your own fabric and timber finishes on our online shop, to create pieces that integrate seamlessly into any space.
Natural textiles and textures bring nature inside, creating a cosy feeling in any room. Over the last two years, we’ve been spending more time inside, so why not make it as cosy and inviting as possible? Whether through supple leather upholstery, cashmere throws, sheepskin rugs, or woven blankets, natural fabrics are definitely the way to go.
Comfort is key in the colder months, and there’s no better way to evoke the feeling of comfort than through contrast — soft meets hard, curved meets straight. Our Floro chair is a modern, luxurious dining chair following this trend with gently rounded curves leading into straight legs. Every designer also seems to agree that super-soft fabrics and natural textiles are the order of the day when it comes to comfort, along with big, luxurious throws and squashy pillows to soften the mood.
Focus on colour, cosiness, and comfort when customising the Floro chair to encapsulate the best of this seasons’ trends. Combine a dark timber finish like dark brown or black, with a soft, supple cognac leather upholstery and a cosy, warm throw. The leather used to upholster Woodbender pieces is finished with a combination of transparent waxes and oils, which gives the leather a soft feel. When the leather is stretched or pulled, the colour migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled area. The leather will patina and age over time, giving it a vintage and classic worn leather look. There’s no better seat in which to curl up with a good book and a big glass of red wine on a cold, rainy day.
