colored chairs


18Furniture can be renewed every season, just like clothing. The Spring-Summer 2020 furniture trends are nothing but the mirror of the deep desire for colour and lightness that we are feeling right now. After a long and very strange winter, due to the Covid-19 emergency, the lockdown has been lifted. The sun, the blooming trees and the spring air remind us that we are approaching summer. And even our houses, inside and outside, can “wear” the perfect shades and materials for this season.

There are many home furnishing styles: there are those who prefer minimal accessories, those who look at old fashioned shapes, and those playing with decorations. But every style can have a link with contemporary furniture trends. Let’s discover all the living room furniture trends, but also the news for the courtyard and the garden, of this Spring-Summer 2020.

Summer living room decor trends

The living room is the environment of the house we live the most: for some it can be the dining room, for others it is a separate space. However, it is generally the place where we pay the most attention to furniture. This year, it will be even more important to make space, because living in airy and bright environments, now more than ever, is becoming essential for a healthy lifestyle.

The 2020 furniture trends suggest using a few large accessories and limiting decorative objects. After an economic and social crisis like the one we are going through right now, after all, priorities are back in order. Essential pieces, therefore, but precious. The sideboards are back, a passe-partout piece of furniture that can be used as a wardrobe, sideboard or chest of drawers. Round tables (that have a wider optical effect than rectangular ones); chairs with essential shapes, only a few frills, but lots of colour.

Summer 2020 furniture colour trends: yellow and orange

Vitaminic, energetic and sunny yellow cannot be missing in your home and in the garden this summer! Tables and small pieces of furniture lend themselves well to this trendy tone. Orange is its faithful companion: for some seasons now, it has come back in all its nuances. Bontempi Casa has made terracotta, the autumn version of orange, the best colour of last autumn-winter season. With summer it returns to cover the leather of coffee tables and armchairs, to represent a warm and lively environment. These homely tones can be combined with white and khaki.

Summer 2020 furniture colour trends: pink and neutral shades

Pink, the feminine shade “par excellence” but now expanded to a wider audience, dresses the interiors and exteriors of those who have a vaguely retro home. Pink gives brightness and radiance to the environment, and ever as in summer 2020 it is a trendy shade that makes your home brighter. Interior designers call it Cloud Pink – that recalls the shade of the most evocative sunsets. Perfect for curtains, wallpaper, lamps and rugs.

And finally, there are neutral colours, like beige, taupe, ochre, cream white – those that never go out of fashion. Perfect not only for curtains, rugs and sofa covers, but also for tables or suspension lamps, cushions for outdoor stools and covered chairs. Their light touch serves to dampen the energy given by the more powerful colours: the combination of both is essential for a harmonious as well as trendy home.

Summer 2020 furniture trends: materials

One key word: lightness, like the one we need so much in everyday life, especially now. After a winter spent in isolation, there is nothing better than dressing the house with delicate, airy, light fabrics. Let’s say yes to quality cushions on the seats also on the terrace, chairs covered with fabric, tables made of transparent crystal. Lightness expresses throughout materials.

Sitting in good company around the dining table is one of the greatest pleasures we can give ourselves in everyday life, but if the chairs are not beautiful, practical and comfortable… What kind of pleasure is it? Whether the dining table is placed in the kitchen or in the living room, the choice of dining table chairs is a detail that plays an important role in defining the environment and giving character to the furniture. Today, in fact, the kitchen is more often an open space that communicates with the rest of the house, and the chairs can represent a common thread in the preparation of the different rooms. Having overcome the old diktats regarding the combination of chairs and dining tables, then, the modern furnishing provides for many more free and creative combinations than in the past.

How to match chairs to the dining table

Today, it is common to buy chairs separately from the table, even choosing different styles, between classic and contemporary. Different chairs can also be placed altogether, because they are linked by a common element that can be style, material or colour. In the Bontempi Casa catalogue there are many options to create the combination that best reflects your taste.

An ideal example of furnishing accessories that help to create a common thread between the kitchen and the living area is the Polo seating family. The different variants of the metal structure correspond to the chromatic variations of the polypropylene backrest, while the wooden seat can be covered by a wide range of fabrics. Polo chairs with trellis structure have been positioned around the Cruz dining table, while the stool version is the most modern solution to complete a kitchen with a central island.

Chairs for modern kitchens are comfortable as well as practical and functional, light enough to be moved without any difficulty in case you want to add a place at the table, or to reach the highest shelves. The material is also very important, it must be impact resistant and easily washable. Seventy chair is the perfect synthesis of these characteristics: it has an essential-shaped metal structure and it is covered with ecological leather or leather. The black variant of Seventy chair perfectly matches the structure of Genio table and a piece of furniture with strong personality.
