Furniture trends: How to bring style to your home with second-hand treasures from our furniture shops

24/07/2019

This year the public consciousness has turned firmly to helping the planet, so it’s only natural that sustainability is one of the biggest interior design trends to emerge. It’s nearly impossible to overhaul your lifestyle and live a completely sustainable life all in one go, however making small swaps here and there is an excellent way to get started. 

We get some really good quality items donated from stylish furniture companies like Oka and The Interiors Agency who rent out luxury flats in London. Some of this furniture has hardly been used and follows the latest fashion trends in colours and style. Rather than looking in Ikea or on eBay, why not check out our great furniture shops in Oxfordshire at Carterton, Summertown, Didcot, Headington and Rose Hill.  

Discover fabulous florals at our Didcot furniture shop 


There’s a theory in the interior design world that what we see on the fashion runways in spring and autumn will dictate what appears in our home decor the following year. And this year, Paris and New York were all about florals.

Floral patterns are taking root and showing up in shops around the country on bedding, pillows, sofas and wallpaper, but we’re not talking about Grandma’s dated floral prints. Today’s blooms are big, bold, and often abstract, offering up larger-than-life interpretations of a flower. If you’re ready for a break from chevron, trellis, and geometric patterns, this trend could be for you.

Check out floral sofas and other designs in our Didcot Furniture shop: 133 Broadway, Didcot OX11 8RQ or give us a call on 01235 818253.

Brighten up your house with pretty hues from our Carterton furniture shop


Talking of florals, this trend also applies to colours. The flowery hue is still decidedly in the moment including pink including this lovely pink sofa in our Carterton shop. You’ll continue to see the pale “millennial” variety, otherwise known as blush or delicate pink. However, you can also go bolder with raspberry-toned colour making a statement. Kitchen cabinets will start showing off their new bold pink colours too. Your walls, however, will be more about the peach tones.

Make sure to visit our Carterton furniture shop at Unit 1 The Giles Centre, Alvescot Rd, Carterton OX18 3DH or give us a call on 01993 840268.

Come home to furniture you love from our Oxford, Headington furniture shop


One of the most popular home design trends of 2019 is the use of earthy colours. In previous years, grey tones were often in fashion in interior design. Also known as greige, this hue is a combination of grey and beige. This year, grey is still dominant but it’s often combined with softer pastels and earthy tones.

The interior trends 2019 are mainly about colours that appear in nature, such as soft greens and browns. Taupe, for instance, which was dubbed the colour of the Year for last year’s interior design trends, is now becoming a popular choice of colour for interior design.

Visit our Headington furniture shop at 14 Windmill Road, Oxford OX3 7BX or give us a call on 01865 762555.

Get that cosy look with earthy colour furniture from our Rose Hill furniture shop 


The interior design trends this year are taking a more environmentally-friendly approach. Thus, it’s not surprising to see a lot of warm and natural elements being combined with the earthen luxury trend. As a matter of fact, natural elements like natural wood furniture are seen as the best interior design trends for 2019.

Materials that were obtained from nature or those that mimic the look of nature are addressing this need. These interior design trends are making our spaces look more authentic and unique. You can apply natural wood in your home interior design, along with different stone materials, such as pebbles, granite, marble, and those materials that resemble and complement with natural elements. That being said, interior designers are embracing the use of handcrafted and recycled furniture and fixtures for interior trends 2019.

Visit our Rose Hill furniture shop at 72A Rose Hill, Oxford OX4 4HS or give us a call on 01865 774729.

Transform your house with curvy furniture from our Summertown charity shop 

One of the biggest changes taking place in interior design trends 2019 is the use of curves and smooth edges instead of the usual boxy edges and clean lines among furniture designs. From soft and puffy chairs to curved coffee tables, these interior design elements are all about comfort and elegance. Sofas, armchairs and chairs will have a more fluid and organic character to accompany decorative trends that want to be closer to nature. Rounded high back chairs are a chic way to bring the curvy trend into your home.

Mustard hues have been the go-to shade over the warmer months in our homes like this wonderful mustard winged chair in our Summertown shop is a great example of curves and smooth edges. No longer content with smaller pops of mustard, we are seeing a move towards larger investment pieces of furniture which add a bold, refreshing burst of colour to our living spaces. 

Discover more at our Summertown charity shop at 268 Banbury Road Summertown, Oxford OX2 7DY or give us a call on 01865 515383. 

From cutting down on single-use plastic to recycling more, there are many quick fixes to try that will help ease your carbon footprint in no time. Recycling your furniture by donating them to our local charity shops and buying furniture from our shops will also help to reduce your carbon footprint.
