Design Notes from the Barcelona Chair: What happened in 2020 in Interior Design? (II/II)
Let’s keep reviewing the trends that were announced in the beginning of 2020, and how it resulted through this very singular year.
More artistic than ever
In 2020 people expected to see a return to more abstract forms of art on our walls. Statement art, abstract art, saving for a while those favorite film posters or that photograph of our favorite musician. Will this trend survive our over politicized times? or will look to clean the air a little?
The Revolution WFH, Working From Home
After the Covid19 madness, one of the more striking consequences for Interior Design is the rise of the home office as one of the main spaces in our house. Something that was growing before, though at a slower rate.
Now, is a must to locate the best place in your house to locate a good spot for your chair, desk, equipment, and devices, if they are needed.
A whole growing phenomenon, the quest for the right furniture to make us comfortable at home, but productive and focused just began, and it requires some balance between the formality of our traditional office and the comfort of our place.
WFH implies the definitive arrival of ergonomic chairs to our houses, just like some gadgets previously regarded as office. A symbiosis between this moods will be something to see in the ends of 2020 and 2021.
The rise of Coastal Living
The hunger for a better lifestyle doesn’t end with a natural love for plants. A fresh and healthy lifestyle is gaining the preferences of the American west coast: Coastal Living. Heavily inspired by the sea and marine views of the west coast, the presence of blue, wood, sand, and white are a constant, and of course, there are the occasional sailor, yachting motifs. Coastal Living is minimalist, and due to its love for wood too, it tends to be associated with Mid Century Modern, and according to several sources, it is mistaken by people as MCM many times. 2020 was a good year for Coastal Living, and that is expected to continue.
If you want to experience the beauty and magnetism of Mid Century Modern design master pieces, like a Barcelona Sofa, or a Barcelona Daybed, don’t lose the opportunity and go to Barcelona Design, the best place for Mid Century Modern replicas.
