The “usual suspects” in furniture design
Today’s article is dedicated to people who regard furniture as more of a work of art rather than a commodity. It’s about those who can draw inspiration for their own works. It can be both your own work in furniture design, as well as the desire to set up apartments once.

If you want to develop in a certain area of art, then you have compulsively your own idols among the talented people who are leaders there. Also, there are many “hidden” talents who create beautiful things but are not famous. But as a rule, the big brands and names have not become such by chance. This is now the speech. And the trends that they create.

The luxury is also current today, but it is not so much focused on splendor and pomp. It consists in the super high quality and the high taste. That’s why certain luxury models can be very well integrated into otherwise common designs.

The luxury materials
The latest luxury materials in modern furniture design have a strong relationship to nature. They have, if you may put it that way, inner values. The luxury materials are for example natural leather and stones. They are used both in wall cladding and in the design of furniture.

The new life of gold
In furniture design, the role of gold has changed in a corresponding manner. Again, this is no longer an end in itself. Gold has to be there if it brings added value. It is intended to warm up the ambience with bold patterns, setting noble accents within a minimalist interior. If one notices his presence as a pure status symbol, then it is very cheap. So the designers of such furniture have to face a much bigger challenge.
The same applies to all other tendencies in furniture design!
