Deep shades, luxurious natural materials and soft round shapes are highlighted in this fall’s trends. Use contemporary products and materials to upgrade your living room quickly and easily for the upcoming season.
Dark wood makes a comeback
Dark wood is one of the hottest trends right now. The Fly coffee table by &Tradition beautifully combines a black marble top with a smoky oak frame. It is available in two sizes: 80 x 80 cm and 120 x 60 cm. This elegant coffee table can be combined with sofas and lounge chairs from the same collection.
Soft under foot
Like other textiles, this fall's rug trends combine volume, softness and natural materials. The Laine rug by Sera Helsinki is handmade from wool, which makes each rug a unique detail in living room interiors. The asymmetric edge adds its own twist to Anna Pirkola’s graphic design.
Replace the cushions
Changing your sofa cushions is a classic – and the fastest – way to freshen up your living room. Soft and fluffy textures and neutral, natural tones are in. The Way cushion by Ferm Living has beautiful fringes and subtle patterns. The cushion is also suitable for outdoor use and is made of recycled plastic.

Round and curved shapes are now a recurring feature in furniture, as well as in smaller details. With its soft, rounded shapes, the ash stool from Made by Choice's Airisto collection is suitable as a side table or spare stool. Its timeless and stylish design is the creation of Joanna Laajisto.
The re-emergence of a classic
Santa & Cole, a Barcelona-based lighting manufacturer, has added Ilmari Tapiovaara's Maija lamps, originally designed in 1955, to its collection. Inspired by beehives, these table, pendant and floor lamps made of metal discs are available in both white and the original nude rose hue.
A chair that fits in anywhere
Light lounge chairs are among the most versatile furniture: they are a perfect fit in both small and larger living rooms, and adapt well to bedrooms if necessary. &Tradition's slim Pavilion lounge chairs come in a variety of colors and upholstered. Their classic tubular steel frame combines with beautifully curved wood, resulting in fresh and timeless chairs.

Clarity and sculptural details are now recurring features in interior decor. Inspired by the shape of a nautilus shell, the Ferm Living Shell pot is impressive in its own right but, being glazed inside, it is also suitable for houseplants or flowers. The steel Bau pot by the same manufacturer has a sleek and graphic form, creating a beautiful match for more elaborate objects.
