by Claudia Schiera.

The latest trends rediscover a desire for refined décor and an increasing attention to the quality of materials: a stylistic path paved with timeless refinement, bold colors, and très chic pendant.

Their power is unrivaled: they know how to revolutionize and give a distinct personality, almost without touching the furniture present in a room. We are talking about furnishing fabrics and wallpapers, now considered an indispensable choice in creating any interior design. Far from simple accessories, used to embellish interiors, they are at the center of aesthetic and conceptual experimentation, and increasingly the focus of important interior projects.

The result is a triumph of style, in its real meaning, focused on the power of décor, veering into various themes: color, pattern, new ethnic, and raw material.

Color and décor have always been a winning combination. In 2024, however, it’s not so much about furniture and furnishings, which remain neutral and minimal, but it focuses on other usually overlooked elements: walls and upholstery, ceilings, and windows. Developed within an articulated kaleidoscope, the new hues involve soft palettes in various pastel shades, where the velvety Pantone Peach Fuzz coexists with various green shades..

To give even more strength to color, patterns with micro or large-scale designs, along with a renewed passion for geometric prints. Fabrics and wallpapers with “natural” prints featuring plants and animals, and/or more or less fantastical dream landscapes, are also present. Recurring are also references to the 1970s, a period among the most revolutionary concerning the aesthetics of domestic spaces, with patterns explicitly recalling the aesthetics of the time.

Both in wallpapers and furnishing fabrics, there are significant patterns with evocative designs and colors, decorations that speak of distant lands and peoples. Ingredients of a new ethnic style, less rough than in the past and decidedly more chic and refined. Designed to furnish and complete characterful homes, or even just suggestive corners, they outline furnishing solutions of great charm and allow you to travel with the mind while comfortably seated in an armchair.

Geometric and futuristic prints, animals and flowers, but also updated versions of traditional designs such as Toile de Jouy, the new fabric collections focus on decoration, but unquestionably also on the quality of materials. Thus, interesting textures like traditional wool in tweed and bouclé versions, cotton, linen, velvet in its various declinations, but also rich weaves like lampas and jacquard make their way into the world of furnishing textiles. The result is a rich and brilliant textile, designed not only to embellish but to furnish, like real furniture, every type of interior.
