Style Forecast: The Must-Have Canadian Home Trends for 2024

Posted by Anita Petersen on 9th Jan 2024

The champagne has been put away and we’re all recovering from the holidays and that means one thing, it’s time to talk trends for 2024.

As 2024 unfolds, Canadian homes are set to embrace a new wave of furniture and interior trends, combining modern design with personal comfort and style. This year, the focus is on creating living spaces that not only look fabulous but also deeply resonate with our lifestyles.

The mantra is simple: your home, your sanctuary.

The emerging trends for 2024 are not just about designing spaces that look great but also about how we interact with our spaces. Natural elements like calming wood tones are bringing an organic, grounding essence into our homes, redefining the concept of indoor tranquility.

We’re excited to see lighter tones, particularly greystaupes and creams, taking centre stage in upholstery. There has been some chatter back and forth about whether grey in particular was sliding into the background but it simply isn’t the case. Retailers large and small and key designers are requesting grey as a main colour story and our favourite influencers love sharing their grey and grey-inspired interiors.

Let’s dive into the top 6 interior and furniture trends for Canadians in 2024

Natural Elements: Calming Wood Tones

2024 sees a strong trend towards bringing natural elements and wood tones into home decor. Wood accent tables and chairs are at the forefront of this trend. These pieces don't just serve as functional items; they bring a piece of nature into living spaces, creating a sense of harmony and grounding.

Light Tones: Serenity Now

We love a good pop of color as much as the next person but truly adore that light tones of grey, taupe and cream are trending. We’re already seeing these colours be the focus in new design projects, on social and with our retail partners. Besides being timeless and versatile, these lighter shades make spaces appear more open and larger, creating an airy spacious feel that feels more soothing. PLUS, our relator and staging friends tell us that neutral light shades are more appealing to a wider range of potential buyers so if you are decorating with resale in mind, this palette is perfect.

Nervous of light fabrics? Performance fabric to the rescue. With our C0 rated performance fabrics you can indulge in lighter upholstery knowing that spills and stains will be easier to remove while still being friendly to humans and pets.

Warm Minimalism: The Art of Cozy Spaces

The concept of warm minimalism is gaining traction, particularly with those of us who want a clutter-free yet cozy environment. (Still working on the clutter free thing - one step at a time).

This look is about creating spaces that are minimal yet warm, acting as havens from the hustle and bustle of busy of our lifestyles. It's about choosing pieces that are both simple and comforting like designer accent chairs, tailored sofas, and iconic furniture designs like wishbone dining chairs and marble flute dining tables.

Curvy Furniture: A Continued Love Affair

Curvy furniture, with its soft lines and inviting forms, continues to capture the hearts of Canadians. These pieces add a touch of elegance and fluidity to spaces, breaking the monotony of straight lines and sharp edges. Think curvaceous sofas and chairs as well as upholstered beds and ottomans to bring soft flowing lines to our spaces.

Bedroom Rejuvenation: Creating Relaxing Spaces

The bedroom is no longer just a place to sleep; it's a sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation. The trend of transforming bedrooms into calm, quiet spaces is more important than ever. New stylish beds in trending creams and cozy taupes and mid-mod inspired nightstands and dressers will add simple elegance. The result are bedrooms that invite us to take a moment to refresh and relax before jumping headfirst into another day.

Quiet Luxury – Timeless Curation

We are so ready for this look. Quiet Luxury is about creating spaces that feel as timeless as they are elegant, echoing the philosophy of a carefully curated wardrobe. It’s about investing in classic, foundational pieces that anchor a room; furniture with clean, classic lines and silhouettes that stand the test of time. Think of pieces that grow with you, evolving through the years rather than super trendy pieces that can fade from popularity more quickly.
