Trend report: Let your furniture hang

Let it hang2

Gone are the days of scouting out the latest fashion trends from top influencers using #OOTD (Outfit of the Day).

Today, it’s all about finding the must-haves of the moment for your home. And with interior influencers leading the change across Instagram, independent and high street brands are receiving more organic promotion than ever before.

So, what trend are avid décor influencers loving right now? Well, it’s best to look up to the ceiling…

Hanging furniture

Originally intended to make the most of small outdoor spaces with hanging seating, planters and lights, interior enthusiasts are bringing the outside in with many items now hanging from the ceiling rather than fixed to the wall. 

Suspended seating

Hanging egg chairs have become a garden essential in recent years, as they are perfect for finishing any outdoor space and allow you to spend hours relaxing outdoors. But this year the stylish seat has moved indoors to people’s living spaces.

Thinking about giving it a try in your home? We love the Briana Hanging Chair by Norden Home from Wayfair, or if you fancy something a bit different, why not get cosy with the Cox & Cox Hanging Bell Tent.

Swinging Shelves

The hanging trend is encouraging people to move away from floating shelves and is seeing them opt for a more urban and rustic storage solution with hanging rope shelving.

The beauty of adding this feature to your home is that many DIY-savvy people can make the shelving to fit their home with the help of the many ‘how to’ videos out there, but if you’re not handy with ‘do-it-yourself’ jobs then La Redoute has exactly what you need to add hanging shelves to your home.

Plus, let’s not forget floating bedside tables too!

Pendant Planters

Greenery is another way this trend is bringing the outside in with hanging planters. A real space saver when there is limited space, suspended houseplants can bring real edge to any room, especially with its many stylish display options. We love the hanging glass vases and bulbs! Check out Maisons Du Monde for some ideas for your home.

Luxury Lighting

With this trend, lighting is stepping away from subtle, classic fittings to statement pendulums. From hanging vintage lightbulbs and suspended cables to industrial shades and golden hues, lighting has become the focal point of dining rooms and kitchens alike. We love John Lewis’ options for lighting while Next leads the way with industrial lighting.

With its urban, outdoor and stylish feel, add a few hanging touches to your home’s décor to be bang on trend.
