The main trend is massive individualization. Design is not for everyone, but for everyone. Designers reflect on an eclectic interior – a mix of styles and stylistics best expresses the personality and its passions. The 2020 call sounds like this: ignore the trends, personalize the interior and show your emotions!
Developers around the world are reducing the average area of apartments, urban dwellings are becoming more compact. The minds of designers occupy everything that will help the modern nomad to fit on a small number of meters, without losing in comfort: modular sofas, folding tables, folding beds and hidden kitchens.
Technological innovations are becoming especially acute: multifunctional devices, home robots, home appliances with Internet access. Ceiling lights, kettles and refrigerators are controlled from a smartphone. Kitchens in modern homes are reminiscent of professional sites chefs – both the level of technology and the quality of dishes prepared on them.
A new generation of design enthusiasts has buried the fake industrial chic and loft style, the dubious urban country and the brilliant hotel glamor. Finally, beige interiors are gone, giving way to color and ornament. A rational Danish design is at the peak of its popularity in Europe, but Italian maximalism is pushing it.
The concept of “decorated interior” is rapidly going out of fashion. People want to be designers themselves. The idea of a stylized, deliberately decorated interior with “competently” arranged still lifes seems outdated.
In 2019, fashion design teams such as Dimorestudio, Peter Pilotto or LaDoubleJ introduced us to unforgettably extravagant interiors. Contrasting prints and ornaments, a powerful mix of different styles and times, the return of the 80s is a departure from minimalism inspired by the Scandinavians that has dominated in recent years. Maximalism has not yet gained strength at the consumer level, but soon it will happen. Consumers want to express themselves, and maximalism (sometimes on the verge of kitsch) allows them to do so. “The consumer no longer wants to be told stories (he tells them himself), he wants to empathize and enjoy the new experience,” said Vincent Gregoire, the NelliRody-style agency. “As the rhythms accelerate, we mix the concepts of good and bad taste, high and low brands, liberating imagination.”
Universes Dizaynery, restaurateurs and manufacturers are joining forces. Together they create colorful and joyful events that take us from a busy metropolis to parallel universes – warm, bizarre and exotic. Under the influence of this trend, furniture acquires bright, bold colors, surfaces play with reflections. Theuser is invited to talk about the interior as a fabulous, sensual experience.

Accent wall will now be in every novice decorator. “The digital revolution is changing the rules,” says Vincent Gregoire. “Having become stylists, we work on the image and take care of our own home as a“ showroom ”, where our life and our hobbies are displayed in the window. The interior for the frame, which will adore and hate, like and post in social networks. Theatrical effects, narcissism and decorative exhibitionism are what awaits the advanced users in the season 2019/2020.
The last century is quoted, reprinted and becoming more and more expensive. The fashion for post-war modernism – “modernism with a human face” is not going to leave us in 2020. Furniture has become much more rounded and feminine, and things in the spirit of the 30-50s are boldly combined with later quotes from the bourgeois-bohemian 70s and the radical 80s. Miuccia Prada exhibits Brazilian modernist armchairs in Miami, anti-design Memphis begins to recruit new fans For Fendi, Chiara Andreatti worked on the concept of the friendly “Welcome!” Lounge. The ideas of animated luxury and elegance combined the new star of decor with the bourgeoisness of the 1970s, the hoodies of the Vienna Secession and the Italian design diva. Gabrielle Crespi.

Nostalgic and sophisticated fashionistas in 2020 are invited to recall the kettles and vases of Koloman Moser, the architectural furniture of Adolf Loos andJoseph Hoffman. In 2020, thenumber of exhibitions and trades will be devoted to the Viennese modernist style and the centenary anniversaries of the death of artists Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and architect Otto Wagner.

19. Cozy home
The hygge trend will continue in 2020. We still have a desire for a simple, relaxed, unobtrusive lifestyle, where the home is our main refuge in a politically troubled, noisy world. Everything that provides comfort, silence and a kind of Digital Detox is appreciated-cocoon chairs, sound-absorbing curtains and cozy soft sofas. The Swedish word Lagom has enriched the hygge trend – it translates as “not to the small and not to much”. Relaxing cool calm spaces are in fashion. There is an opportunity to inhale fresh air without leaving the city and relax without going to the spa, and the designers design things that are good for the psyche. Emotional States – emotional well-being will be the theme of the London Design Biennale in the fall of 2020.

Attention is attracted to furniture made by people, not machines. Techno craft triumphs in the subject design – things created using handicraft labor and ancient techniques with the latest technologies and / or materials. Decorators recalled the Japanese principle of wabi-sabi, an emphasis on the use of objects made with congenital imperfections and with an emphasized sense of authenticity.

21. Tonal interiors
While bright maximalistic interiors are gaining more and more fans, minimalists prefer to soothe the eye with monochrome. Thin, layered, texture palettes give a feeling oflightness.
22. Local resources
Today, designers with one click of a computer mouse get access to any resources in the world. However, many increasingly pay attention to the products of not global brands, but of modest local producers. “My clients prefer me to invest their money in the local economy,” says American designer Max Humphrey. “I choose local tables and chairs, lamps, tiles and lumber.”
23. Utilitarian materials
Among the rich selection of materials returned plywood (i.e. multi-ply wood), concrete (for furniture and textured accessories), terrazzo (concrete with marble chips), ratan, bamboo (even for floor), linen canvas, mohair and army cloth.

28. Light is a new color
Good lighting is still the key to keeping the room warm and cozy. Light sources are increasing. And designers consider light as an independent material: light streams are twisted into letters and poured like liquids. As technology evolves, designers explore color gradients from luminous threads stretched across a room like clothesline. Portable, rechargeable and even folding table lamps are in vogue. And there are desperate optimists who offer to treat a mini-lamp as a jewel.
