With the new year fast approaching, 2023 has been nothing short of an exciting year! Over the last 12 months we've seen many styles and trends take over the world of home interiors and furniture, really making a stylish statement. From bold colours to trendy shapes, from making a statement to functional pieces. Let's take a quick look back at the last year at some of our favourite trends and styles!
Maximise space with multifunctional beds
2023 has been all about making the most of your space. Furniture that serves a dual purpose has taken by storm, as more and more people look to utilise their space more functionally. If you're limited on storage space in the bedroom, having a bed with an ottoman functionality is perfect for storing away all your bits and bobs. This year, we saw the love for ottoman beds grow.
The arched headboard of the Archer Ottoman Bed combined with the easy to use ottoman storage functionality, this bed was a firm favourite with all of our lovely customers. Available in six colours, a choice of velvet and boucle fabrics and a range of sizes to suit your space!
For lovers of a more traditional design, our Leamington Upholstered Ottoman Bed combines practicality with a traditional Chesterfield design - you can never go wrong with this! Or make a statement with something a little bit more premium like our Constance Ottoman Bed. With its super plush, winged headboard the Constance is the perfect example of a functional, spacious statement piece!
Sofa by day, bed by night
Continuing with the theme of multifunctional furniture, the love for sofa beds carried on throughout 2023. Perfect for the guest room or even in your lounge, having a practical sofa-bed like the Solna or the Hanney makes switching between a sofa and a bed easy. Whether you need a sofa during the day for a movie marathon or a bed at night for your guests, having a sofa-bed gives you the best of both worlds without taking up too much space.
Creating your dream Barbiecore interior
The Barbiecore trend took social media (and the world) by storm during 2023, and at daals we are all about adding a bright pop of colour to your room and making a statement.
This year we saw many of our lovely customers jumping on this pretty-in-pink trend and adding some subtle - and funky - barbie-inspired pink furniture into their homes.
Keeping it simple and making a subtle statement by adding some pink around the dining table and kitchen counter with the Miyae Pleated Counter Stools.
Or going funky and all out with some Kylie faux fur bar stools to really make a statement whilst your having a drink!
There's no reason why the Barbiecore trend can't be included in other parts of your home too! The muted addition of pink in your living room sofa - like our Clarence Blush Pink Sofa - allows you to brighten up your room with the pop of colour. And we definitely don't believe the Barbiecore trend is over - if you're feeling inspired, head over to our Barbiecore collection to see what you can add to your home!
The continued love for boucle
The love for boucle has continued to grow throughout 2023! The decades old trend is definitely a firm favourite in the recent days. And this year we went all out with our love for boucle.
Amalgamating boucle with stylish, curved shapes, the Hampstead Range has been a firm favourite of ours and our lovely customers! Perfect for that contemporary interior, the Hampstead Sofas and Armchair combines an elegant curvilinear silhouette and beautiful textured boucle fabric.
This year we saw more love and appreciation for boucle dining chairs too! We agree, it's a way to add some luxe vibes around the dining table. Our Fulbourn chairs and counter stools bring that sleek and elegant addition whilst ensuring comfort is key thanks to the boucle fabric! With charcoal, white and taupe boucle colour options, you're spoilt for choice!
Making a statement
We believe furniture reflects personality and this year we've seen the love for statement furniture grow! Whether that's bold colours or sculptural shapes, 2023 has been the year for trying something new.
Our Brompton Armchair has been a favourite this year! The combination of hues like rust and rich velvet fabric, along with a sculptural design makes the Brompton the perfect statement, artsy piece for your room.
Making a statement with your furniture shouldn't be for this year alone! We believe its a trend that is just going to grow over the coming days and months! We're ending the year with the introduction of our new Amboise Curved Collection! Coming soon in January, our Amboise range shouts 'centre-piece'! With its curved, clean design, the Amboise range comprises of a three-seater sofa, armchair and matching pouffe. All of which ooze statement piece vibes! There's nothing quite like creating a talking point with your statement furniture!
