2018 Home Decor Materials Trends

Published: 07/20/2018 by Home Pros Guide


The year's top fabrics, metallic's and woods for home furnishings are coming into focus. What makes current trends so exciting is the sheer variety of materials that have grown in popularity. Whether you prioritize function, comfort or luxury, you'll likely discover a new favorite material to experiment with. So, if you're trying to rethink an entire room, pick out your dream sofa or simply upgrade your decor, look to the latest material trends for some inspiration:


Remember one word: velvet, this material couldn't be more fashionable for sofas. Appearance and texture are a major part of its appeal, but it's the superior softness of velvet that's especially well-suited to lounge seating.

You'll start finding velvet in rich blues and playful pops of mustard yellow and blush pink. In addition to bold colors, eye-catching curved frames are also being paired with this exquisitely soft material.


Natural fibers like rattan and raffia are trending choices for both indoor and outdoor seating. Of course, these natural woven materials aren't new themselves; what is new, however, is the way they're being incorporated into contemporary designs. Rattan weaves seem to be showing up everywhere, from armchairs with effortlessly cool mid-century profiles to sofas with bold, modern frames.


This year, concrete has also been making its mark on patios, decks and outdoor living spaces. Its durability and simple beauty make it an obvious choice for outdoor furniture, from tables and stools to planters and fire pits.


Subtler than gold or silver, brass is versatile while still retaining a hint of glam. A brass pendant light with vintage-influenced styling will undoubtedly dazzle, but this metallic is so easy to coordinate, you'll also see it in more unlikely places.


When it comes to tiling, terrazzo and marble are on trend and always stunning, but let's be honest: retiling a space is a major commitment. If you're not ready to take this kind of chance on a material that's new to you, get to know it via accent furniture. A white marble tabletop with a black base sets up a basic, yet breathtaking, contrast.
