The living room is a major hub for designers.
There are plenty of different furniture options, from modern and classic to retro and futuristic, and the range is constantly evolving.
In the past, the style was dominated by furniture and accessories from the big names like Ikea and Lululemon.
Now, designers can take their inspiration from other spaces.
“I love what I can find in the house that doesn’t have a rug,” says Kristian Tappé, owner of Tappetty Designs.
“Sometimes the furniture is just sitting on a sofa or table.”
And then there’s the space where the decorating takes place.
“It’s like a small art gallery where you can go and see different kinds of artwork,” she says.
“If you’re an artist or a crafter or a designer, there’s a lot of inspiration.”
Tappe says there are also more than 100 different design styles in the living room, from retro to modern, and she’s noticed that people are starting to gravitate towards those styles.
“The house is a creative hub, and it is a home for everyone.
And so people are looking for that little piece of furniture or a piece of artwork or something that they can say that they’ve found and feel connected to,” she said.
Tappette says her clients have been very welcoming to the styles.
“I think a lot people are coming in with the idea that they’re looking for something unique, and so when you show them the furniture or the artwork, they’ll like it,” she explained.
“They’re really happy to see it and to see how it works.”
So what are the styles that are popular these days?
The styles can range from modern furniture to a little bit of everything.
“A lot of people will say they like a modern piece of art, or a modern, vintage piece of wood, and they’ll just like the look of it, and there’s so many options, but there’s not a specific style,” says Tappeter.
“We have a whole range of things.
So if you like something, there are some things to look for, and you can find something in every room, but the kitchen and bedroom, there is a lot to choose from.”
One of the new trends is a mix of contemporary and retro design, as well as more contemporary pieces, such as china lamps.
And there are lots of new styles popping up in the home that you can’t really find anywhere else.
“You can really find everything that you need in the kitchen, and in the bedroom,” Tappetter says.
For the most part, the trend is towards furniture that is more modern, so if you are looking to move into a house with a big, modern kitchen and living room set up, then you’ll find a lot more styles there.
“There’s a couple of big names in this space, and I’m seeing some really big names that are really popular,” says Sarah Fitch, owner and designer of Design House.
Fitch says she often has a “trend of a piece” when she comes across new pieces, and this year she’s been working with a new designer named Terence O’Keefe.
“He’s an amazing designer, he’s got a big design style, and he’s a designer of some kind, and then he’s brought his design style to the house and he made some really beautiful pieces,” she explains.
“And he’s doing this very minimal, simple, simple design.”
Fitch has been working on pieces for years and has been impressed by how much the designs have grown since she first saw them in the gallery.
“All of my furniture is now custom made,” she told CBC News.
“But it’s not just the furniture.
There’s a whole other space that you’re not really aware of.”
