Revamping your homes with trending furniture designs and summer house furniture ideas can allow you to enjoy the season. Read on for our list of interior design trends for 2022 that will help make your home summer ready. 

Trending furniture design for chic bar settings 

Remember those wonderful cocktails and mocktails most of us learnt to make when we were stuck at home during the lockdowns? Well, they need a home. With entertaining and socialising at home becoming more frequent, carving out a little zone for your bar setting is popular interior design trend for 2022. A built-in bar like this one supplemented with chic and comfy bar chairs is a great idea if you have the space. It is also a great way to add visual interest to your living room furniture as the designer had done here with the green, panelled bar.

Furniture design tip: If you don’t have the space for a dedicated built-in bar, there are different ways to incorporate a bar into your living room. You can purchase a freestanding bar that closes up to save space when not in use. You could use shelves on a wall or a tall display unit against a wall as the bar – just make sure you have a horizontal surface to work on. Your bar nook could also double up as a coffee nook. This might not work for families with kids, but consider using your built-in bar as the eating area as well. This way you won’t need a dining set and can free up space by having less living room furniture.

Furniture trends to create spaces for rest and relaxation

Furniture design trends in 2022 not only look to carve out work from home areas but also to provide spaces for relaxing. It is equally, if not more, important that your home is a place where you can recharge. Seating nooks like the one seen in the image are perfect for that morning cup of coffee, evening chai, reading, chatting with family or meditating. Whatever it is that helps you recuperate and rest, your home should have a peaceful and calming space to do that.

Trending furniture design tip: While there is a visual symmetry to sofa sets and matching furniture, we love how the designer has used different seating options and a geometric window design element to create an interesting and cohesive look. They have used a cane swing, a wood armchair, a comfortable window seat and an upholstered ottoman to add layers of materials and visual elements that work together seamlessly. 

Trending furniture design for outdoor spaces

In keeping with the interior design trend of creating spaces for relaxation, we have also turned our focus to our outdoor spaces. Being stuck at home showed us just how important our balcony and terraces are. Furniture trends for 2022 see a focus on comfortable outdoor furniture which is weather-resistant. Look for sleeker designs that won’t take up too much space in your balcony and add one or two small side tables. Easy ways to revamp your outdoor spaces include adding plants and small water features. Consider floor decking tiles that click together are fit on top of your existing flooring for an updated look. A quick makeover can be accomplished with a little bit of paint. Outdoor paints come in a variety of colours, finishes and textures as well as protect the exterior façade against the elements. Check out our guide to exterior paints here.

Style tip: Outdoor lighting, especially for balconies, usually comes with one or two standard lights. They are functional but lack on

aesthetics. Adding lights to layer the design of the outdoor spaces is as important as the furniture and furnishings. The key factor to keep in mind when it comes to terrace or balcony lighting is to use soft or diffused warm light.

Furniture design trends for 2022 elevates minimal design with summer colours

The minimal furniture and design aesthetic is not a new one and is especially visually pleasing during hot and humid summers. However, the monochromatic and almost reductive décor can sometimes feel a bit too stark. 2022 furniture trends see this uncluttered aesthetic elevated with soothing colours. Living room furniture and sofa trends for 2022 include sleek, streamlined pieces. Simple forms, furniture with legs and clean-cut, contemporary lines with little to no ornamentation work well.

Style tip: The monochromatic colour scheme is infused with a layering of soothing colours while natural materials and fabrics add textural layers to the pared-back décor which is peppered with metallic accents.

Curvilinear designs for living room furniture

Interior design trends for 2022 see curves making a comeback. Fluid contours and curved geometry started to make a reappearance last year in furniture design. This furniture trend is still holding strong and is another way to incorporate a softer version of minimal home décor for your summer house furniture ideas. Curves can not only visually soften the starkness of minimal décor, they impart a comforting visual. They also work well in all-white rooms as well as with heavier pieces of furniture.

Summer house furniture ideas inspired by nature

Biophilic design as an interior décor trend is here to stay. We find comfort in nature; the soothing colours and textures help us relax and find mental balance. Furniture design trends for 2022 are big on natural materials like cane, rattan, bamboo, light wood paired with summer textiles like linen, cotton and jute. Light wood with a soothing, nature-inspired colour palette is a wonderful aesthetic for summer, if not all year round.

Summer design tip: Plant, plants, and more plants. We cannot stress enough the impact of plants on your décor, mood and well-being. 

Calming shades and patterns for summer

Pale pinks, light blues, cool grey, soft greens, calming mauve or earthy tones are a seasonal update which can also work year-round. Bright white might seem too stark on the eyes but these soothing, pastel colours brighten up a room and accentuate natural light. Add summer prints to your soft furnishings and upholstery in breathable fabrics. Florals and botanical prints are timeless and versatile.

Style tip: A smattering of metallic accents works well with this lighter palette.
