If you are in the market for new furniture, you may be looking for pieces that are modern and stylish. Learning about the furniture trends will be you find trendy pieces of furniture. Here are three trends that are expected to be big in 2016.

Pedestal Stands

One of the biggest furniture trends this year is expected to be an influx of pedestal stands. These stands can be used in place of end tables. They are slightly taller, which helps to draw the eye upward, and make a room with short ceilings seem taller. They also have a small footprint, so they can be used in small or cluttered spaces without seeming overwhelming. Place a plant, vase or sculpture on the pedestal to complete the look.

Mixed Metals

Another trend that is expected to be big in 2016 is mixed metals. Furniture pieces made from metal, such as desks or table legs, typically only use one type of metal. However, this year, coppers are being paired with aluminum or stainless steel to create multi-colored and unique pieces of furniture. However, the metal mixture should be the star of the room, so keep colors and patterns to a minimum when selecting a mixed metal piece of furniture.

If a piece of mixed metal furniture is too bold for you, consider incorporating this trend into your space by selecting a mixed metal wall hanging or even mixing up the type of metal knobs used on your entertainment stand or kitchen counters. These are more subtle ways to add this look to your space.
