Which will be the main trends in interior design  in 2021? Will Mid Century Modern style continue as the main trend in décor and furniture? Masterpieces like the Barcelona Chair or the Hans Wegner Shell Chair will stay as part of the most wanted pieces?               

For now, we will make a quick review to what’s in or what’s out in décor, according to very prestigious magazines.

What’s IN in Interior Design for 2021:

Integrated Hardware

Minimal, seamless and sleek look while still offering a sense of design. The vertical lines of the hardware emulate molding lines, creating a calming and ordered visual effect. Integrated hardware is considered more efficient.

Eco Friendly Fireplaces

We are definitely in the mist of a new era. Traditional ways of heating should be leave behind, and classical fireplaces emits CO2, and it’s costly to maintain. 

Kitchen Islands with Cantilevered Eat In Area

Kitchen Islands continue their rise as a preeminent place of American homes, and now they expand, with cantilevered areas to allow your family gathering around the kitchen in a comfortable way. With a lower profile than a diner table and with a relaxed style.

Grand Millennial Style

The new sensation in Interior Design, Grand Millennial Style may be a way to rename Vintage, or  Traditional Contemporary, but blending elements of classic design like chinoiserie, scallops, natural fiber rugs, topiaries, and more, with a contemporary edge.


Plants were already announced in 2020 like a big décor trend and already did it. Not only flower plants, but big, green plants. Besides, they are taking all the rooms of the house, and they are not restricting now to their traditional places (living room, kitchen, hallways), but other spaces like bedrooms, bathrooms and all the house in general.

Rattan and Wicker

Another winner trend in 2020, light wood is rocking, and it can be used in furniture and arts (wall arts, sculptures). Chairs, tables, or lighting, are the perfect layers to balance modern and traditional style.


Terrazzo was invented in Venice when workers took leftover, odd-shaped marble pieces and used them for flooring, the colors and shapes and combinations for this flooring have become endless.

Faux Marble

A curious case where the imitation works better than the original, Faux Marble is favored instead of original marble, due to its advantages for cleaning and maintenance. Marble, though beautiful, tend to retain stains, and is inevitable to suffer of this affection because of the nature of the kitchens.  

Rounded Edge Furniture

Another trend that comes winning from 2020. As prior years, rounded sofas are making it big. Not only with rounded ends, but with rounded frames and designs. This kind of sofas tend to be more expensive, due to the manufacture costs required to produce different frames, beyond the classic forms. Definitely, rounded sofas are great to create a refreshing impression in your room, and to show a different focal point, through color and shape, but its good to keep in mind that this kind of shapes are very fancy, but they fade quickly. If this happens, you will stay with a flamboyant pink sofa for more years that you wish. When it comes to classic choices, nothing beat the iconic Barcelona Sofa with its leather upholstery and its distinctive “X” silhouette.

If you want to enter in the world of classic masterpieces of Design, don’t miss the opportunity in Barcelona Design, the place for classic timeless pieces, like the Barcelona Chair and the Hans Wegner Shell Chair.
