From soothing colours and sustainability, to the resurgence of rattan and mid-century design. The Furniture Chronicle pools together the best of the new features and products unveiled at major design shows such as IMM Cologne and Salone del Mobile, Milano.

Shows like Maison & Objet demonstrated how rounded, circular shapes can add a playful edge to furniture design.

While Stockholm Furniture Fair’s ‘The Unfolding Village’ installation, by Neri and Hu, provided a masterclass in using clean lines to create abstract shapes.

Lisa Cluer, Managing Director of Inside Out Contracts, comments: “We pride ourselves on having our finger on the pulse when it comes to design trends – it’s how we are able to design and specify furniture to create distinctive interiors. We know that designers are time poor, so we wanted to create a report that would distill the best of the amazing shows across the globe. That’s where the Furniture Chronicle comes in.

Featuring examples of our favourite products is a crucial part of the report. We want architects and designers to be able to use the Chronicle as a starting point for a whole range of projects.”

The Furniture Chronicle is now available for free download, enabling architects and designers to discover the key furniture design and trends to look out for as we head into 2020.  Click here.
