2018 Interior Decor Trends

Beth Rice 04/01/2018

What’s trending in home furniture for 2018? Think comfort, accent colors, dark woods, and eco-consciousness.

Brown, Beige & Rich Accent Colors

Brown and beige will take the stage exuding warmth and contributing to comfort and relaxation — a strong theme for décor this year. Neutral, earthy tones lead the way for accent pieces in bright pops of color.

We like the modern pairing of the Jake Sectional with Chaise in a neutral color with coral accents throughout the room.

Casual, Calming Bedrooms

This year will be all about furniture that provides the maximum in comfort, but the minimal in design. Furniture for bedrooms especially should exude casual-calm style with clean designs that allow for relaxation without distraction.

Beauty in simplicity abounds with Shaker style furniture like the Ellington Bedroom Suite from our Shop the Look section.

Living Room Elegance

Living room furniture will be cozy and restful. Sofas will spread out in shapes that draw inspiration from vintage designs in either bold or soft colors. The result?  A combination of luxurious comfort and sophisticated elegance.

The Keaton Sofa Sectional from Precedent’s Vintage Made Modern Collection draws inspiration from American and European styles that were popular from the 1940s through the 1960s.

Functional, minimalist design will also be reflected in furniture. We like the Newport Leanin Bookshelf that offers shelves without overwhelming a room.

Solid Wood’s Staying Power

Watch for solid wood furniture to show off its versatile nature in a variety of light to dark brown shades. Dark woods in chocolate hues will especially add to this year’s theme of comfort and warmth.

The Amish Salem Single Pedestal Dining Table shows off brown maple wood with a golden brown stain.

Eco-Friendly & Cost Effective

2018 stays on the path toward a healthier planet with a focus on spending less and using more earth-friendly furniture and home products. Practical and eco-friendly are sought after elements for home furniture collections, leaning toward reconnecting with nature and a simpler way of life.

Here are some of our top eco-friendly picks.

Poly Patio Pub Table Set with Four Swivel Chairs

The Amish Poly Patio Pub Table Set with Four Swivel Chairs is made of recycled plastic, lasts for decades, holds its value, and won’t fade, crack, or splinter.

Rustic Barn Wood Hutch

The Rustic Barn Wood Hutch makes use of salvaged barn wood that’s reborn in strong, durable solid wood furniture with all the warmth, strength, and character of wood that’s been out in the elements for years.

Lanita Stand

The Amish Lanita Stand offers a solid wood modern style and is equipped to bring nature indoors.

Supporting the growing commitment to eco-friendly lifestyles is our sister site Eco Friendly Digs full of sustainable furniture and home décor products.


Neutral and natural, the Wood Kids Playroom Table Set from Eco Friendly Digs is made from solid wood that’s regionally sourced and sustainably harvested.
