Accessible Custom Furniture And Decor Is The Next Big Interior Design Trend

Emilee Geist

2020 has been a year of collective realization about the importance of our living spaces and interior design. Not only are we all spending more time at home, but most of us are renovating, redesigning, and refreshing our spaces to fit the new normal. Because the pandemic has limited our choices in many ways, the appeal of custom, made-to-order furniture and decor has increased significantly. 

While major players like Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Restoration Hardware have offered made to order furniture for years, buying truly customized and bespoke pieces used to require using an interior designer or knowing the right place to have something commissioned. This also meant visiting a brick and mortar location.

From terrazzo tiles to rattan headboards, there are lots of home decor trends that have made a comeback recently. Industrial interiors are in, as are the desert designs of the Southwest. 

One of the biggest trends actually comes from 100 years ago: art deco, which reigned supreme in the ’20s and ’30s, the age of “The Great Gatsby,” flappers and Prohibition. A century later, we were due for a revival anyway, according to The Washington Post. 

Art deco was thought to be very modern back in its heyday (hey, we are still talking about it in 2020). The art and architectural movement influenced everything from

The trend for organic textures, earthy tones and artisanal products in home decor is on the rise and, when it comes to your floor space, the best natural rugs will add warmth and character to any area.

Not only are natural rugs – like jute and seagrass – an easy way to add a modern rustic feel to your interiors, they’re also a really practical option.

Jute fibres exhibit naturally anti-static, insulating and moisture-regulating properties, and will work to protect a wooden floor.

It’s also a highly durable, resilient material, making it ideal for heavy-traffic areas like the living room, as well as a great investment.

What’s more, natural rugs are perfect for the eco-conscious consumer of today. Jute in particular is a highly sustainable, rapidly renewable resource that relies on rainfall rather than hugely consuming irrigation systems to

We chatted with 10 craft-centric, home decor brands and marketing platforms to understand what the lockdown has been like for business. And more importantly, how buying from them now can help the artisan communities with whom they collaborate.

According to the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH), India’s handicraft sector could suffer a pandemic-related loss of up to Rs.10,000 crore. The lockdown has triggered order cancellations and reduced marketing opportunities, leaving artisans in a particularly challenging situation. While movements, such as #CreativeDignity, have been working to bring relief and rehabilitation to these communities, the largely decentralized sector is also in need of a rejuvenation to align with the changing times.

“One result of worldwide social distancing will be a major increase in online retail buying. However, few craftspeople have the technical and economic resources or know-how to go online. Those of us in the craft sector have to equip ourselves
