Although trends come and go at lightning speed in all fields, from fashion to technology to interior design, they are crucial to making more thoughtful, informed, and creative choices. “Design and decoration give the world something it didn't know it missed”, said Italian architect Paolla Antonelli. In fact, interior design can be bold and innovative but can also make a difference. And that's what a trend is. It represents a new way of using tools and resources based on research and development. It brings new ideas, new conceptions, and new ways of applying techniques, and, in many cases, they end up evolving into more lasting versions of themselves. 

7 Design trends that will last forever

It may seem contradictory: trends are born to disappear. But some trends deserve your attention because they are timeless. Although they may seem fleeting, they remain alive over time, reinventing themselves and remaining an active part of the decor.

1. Wood Trend

Probably one of the trends that will never go away. Timeless with every new year or new season, wood is a material that reliably complements every style. The comfort and warmth that wood exudes guarantee you will never go wrong when choosing this type of piece. 

The physical characteristics of wood make it an eternal trend: density, colour, smell, hygroscopicity, dimensional stability, and thermal and acoustic insulation. In addition, wood is a noble and lively material capable of being used in the most diverse pieces. Whether more traditional, such as the Goathi dining table from the Traditional collection by ALMA DE LUCE, an impressive round table made by hand in walnut wood and finished in brass, or even more irreverent, such as the Uchiwa stool from the Symbol collection.

2. Upholstered Furniture

There's a reason why upholstered furniture is a timeless design trend: it's comfort. And at a time when the convenience of pieces is increasingly valued, this trend will undoubtedly continue very much alive.

Whether in a more classic decor or a more contemporary style, comfortable upholstered pieces have never gone out of fashion. One of them is the Rusak sofa from ALMA DE LUCE. This piece represents a sophisticated design with refreshing details that promise a touch of luxury and sensuality to any living room.

A comfortable, classic and elegant armchair fits into any room, whether a living room, an office or a bedroom. Its shapes and lines will always be the right choice, and that's why this is an eternal design trend that, from time to time, is reinvented with new shapes, colours or materials.

An armchair is a piece that adds a touch of elegance to a room. And usually placed near the sofa or in an empty corner of the room for comfort and decorative power, filling the space. In addition, it is the type of piece that can be applied in any decorative style, regardless of colours or styles. And the truth is that two armchairs can be so different that they give an extra touch to the same decor. Let's look at these examples: the Ndebele armchair by ALMA de LUCE is an elegant seating solution with walnut wood rings and legs that will be the focal point of any modern or contemporary living room set. The Phu Cau armchair encapsulates the best of modern design and a luxurious living room and will become your favourite dwelling in the house.

In a combination of contemporary, unique, bold, and elegant designs, you can find inspiration for armchairs that perfectly match your personality.

4. Tonal layering

Tonal layering is a simple and effective way to infuse colour into an environment. Tonal layering offers endless and enduring possibilities, although trends in the most popular or eye-catching colours may vary.

It is an approach that allows you to safely but innovatively use colours that will never go out of fashion. How? This is about mixing up textures and tones that look like they were almost made to sit alongside each other. Choose similar colour families, and you will have an everlasting design trend.

Furniture in dark tones is a timeless design trend, whether as a trim colour detail or a full-colour decor. The truth is that furniture in certain shades can go out of fashion quickly, but dark colours will continue to be successful and age with the rest of the decor.

In addition, this type of piece provides a striking contrast. Furniture in dark tones makes the environment intimate and sophisticated and can be used in various areas of the house, giving each one a unique charm. For classic and luxurious interiors, the Naperon cabinet is a piece that will attract attention, with the manual inlay of 2072 Swarovski crystals in topaz colour. Another perfect solution is the Espigueiro cabinet from ALMA DE LUCE, an imposing darkened wooden display that challenges a tradition and cherishes it at the same time was born to be a must-have in any luxury living room.
