Stay On Trend & In Canada

Rustic Furniture from Smitty's Fine Furniture in Canada

Canadians take great pride in making their homes comfortable, functional, and stylish. As the housing market shifts once again, and people choose to invest in their home rather than sell, picking the perfect pieces of furniture becomes paramount.

 

Fortunately, we don’t have to look far to find fashionable furnishings that are also made in Canada. Trends are constantly evolving and changing, but there are some very accessible trends en vogue for 2017. Here are some top decor trends for 2017:

 

Casual and Comfortable

The days of sitting upright on a firm chair, reading under matching table lamps, and positioning perfectly matching cushions on your sofa are gone. Canadians want to be cozy and comfortable in their homes. One of the big trends this year is to ditch the uncomfortable furniture and replace it with cushy, soft, and casual pieces. Brands like Decor-Rest, Palliser, and Brentwood have wonderful selections of sofas, accent chairs, and occasional tables that will make your home comfortable for any occasion.

 

Warm Colours and Metals: Bronze, Gold, Champagne

The industrial look of past years has been replaced with warm tones. Solid wood dining tables, hutches, and dressers in chestnut, walnut, and chocolate finishes will bring a depth and warmth to your space.

 

On that same note, silver and metallic finishes have been replaced with bronze, gold, and champagne colours. You can mix and match these colours and tones in the fabric, and with accent pieces like throw pillows, table lamps, and decor pieces.

 

Whether it’s an occasional table, accent chair, or dining table, these rich tones are 100% on trend — and we have these Canadian products in-store.

 

Mix and Match

Mixing and matching furniture is a trend that started a couple of years ago and is still going strong. This design concept is suitable in any room. From dining rooms with different head chairs or a mix of chairs and benches, to sofas with different colours of throw pillows, to bedrooms with bedside tables that don’t match the dresser — mixing and matching is hot.

 

The other benefit of mixing and matching your furniture and decor is that it gives your home a timeless appeal.

 

You will experience a great sense of freedom when placing furniture together in a room with different design styles and colours. Give it a try!  

 

If you’re not sure where to start, come and visit Smitty’s — our decorators will help you get it right!
