Fall is here. Pumpkin spice lattes abound. We decorate our doorsteps and mantles with pumpkins, squash, and autumnal floral and fauna. Spider may finally feel like welcome guests. Well, perhaps we go too far.
With fall in the air, bring the season into your home: incorporate the season’s biggest home design trends with a little help from the Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers.
Many describe the beautiful work of our master furniture makers as classic and timeless. So very true. Yet, we couldn’t help but notice that a five of the big design trends for fall are well represented by our members. It’s not hard to see how quality craftsmanship pairs well with all types of interior design styles, from traditional to contemporary, modern, and minimalist.
Design Trend #1: Wood and organic furniture
A live-edge element adds a big dose of organic style. We love this sculptural dining table featuring live edge maple by Eric Sprenger Fine Woodwork of Wilmington, Vermont.
Design Trend #2: Inlay
Inlay refers to furniture adorned with more than one material or finish. For a beautiful example, feast your eyes on this luxurious inlay furniture by Dorset Custom Furniture of Dorset, Vermont.
Design Trend #3: Mid-century modern furniture
This has been trending for many years with no signs of waning. This Mid-century modern bench by Timothy Clark Cabinetmaker Chairwright of Waltham, Vermont, has a minimal look with rich warm wood that can fit in a modern or traditional setting.
Design Trend #4: Throwback pieces
From art deco to vintage, we love seeing that throwback pieces are still relevant and timeless. If this trend intrigues you, check out this gorgeous art deco style cabinet from Dorset Custom Furniture of Dorset, Vermont, has lights mirrors and steel details.
Design Trend #5: Unique mirrors
Mirrors that make a statement are a big design trend this year. A sculptural feat, this wall mirror crafted by David Hurwitz Originals of Randolph, Vermont, is made from carved walnut. Hang it horizontally or vertically, and custom order it in other sizes and other woods!
We hope you find and choose the trends that add joy and function to your living space from one of the many talented members of the Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers!
