Modern Boho Design for the Home

It’s time to talk boho.

The modern boho look is one of the most sought-after trends in the Canadian home today. From every furniture show we visit to every blog and influencer we gush over, boho is having its moment and we love it.

As a Canadian wholesale furniture company supplying retailers and designers with on-trend furniture and decor, we get asked a lot how our fellow Canadians can create a boho-chic interior in their homes.

It’s actually really easy.

This look is all about creating a story in the home – one about travel, found objects, and global cultures. Rooms are cozy and filled with unique furniture, accessories, rugs, textures and layers creating rooms that mix and match design styles into something truly magical. Never boring, boho is ever-evolving and always fun.

Creating a boho look means letting go of traditional ways of looking at decorating and styling a space so we’ve put together some easy-to-follow tips for creating an amazing bohemian experience.


Here are our top 3 tips for creating a modern boho interior.


1. EMBRACE TEXTURE

Boho is a little bit modern mixed with the perfect amount of eclectic. Combining textures is essential. Macrame, tassels, rattan, seagrass, wood, bamboo, metallics, velvet, faux furs … when you combine them together you get WOW factor x 10 to give a room that free-spirited look we all love.

Love mid-century mod? How about sleek and modern? Can’t get enough global patterns? Perfect. Let’s mix them all together into a room. Forget about minimalism – fill your space with things you adore. Modern boho is all about creating a room that is perfect for you, not just perfect.

3. MUST-HAVE POUFS

Poufs are the essential must-have boho accessory for 2018.  I fact, just last month, WSGN released a report that “Ottomans and poufs are having something of a renaissance, as both appear in top 10 furniture searches for the first time ever.” Yes!

So what makes a pouf a pouf and not an ottoman? Poufs are large cushions for the floor than can also act as a very adorable side table, footrest or just for decoration. Ottomans have legs. Now we know.
