Trends For 2024 – Bespoke Furniture And Materials

By December 5, 2023Bespoke Furniture Design

Bespoke designs and furniture pieces are always a fantastic way to create a better living space, but what if you want to do more than just add functionality? If you’re looking to futureproof your investment or add value to your property, it’s handy to know which designs and particular pieces of furniture are popular with others and which are here to stay for the long run – so that you can rest assured that your next installation will be valuable to you and others for many years to come.

Let’s take a look at upcoming trends for 2024 and which furniture styles are a futureproof choice for your home or property!

Going Bespoke

More and more people are realising the value of custom pieces that serve the space with brilliant functionality as well as appealing designs. The long-term investment of a bespoke piece of furniture is something that more people are looking towards as the appeal of ‘fast-fashion’ off-the-shelf pieces wears off.

This means that those looking to buy or rent your property in future are more likely to value a bespoke space that really transforms how they live!

Is it here to stay? Yes! This trend is one that will maintain interest for years to come as off-the-shelf solutions become ever more saturated and continue to be sub-par in what they can offer, both in terms of quality and functionality, compared to bespoke solutions. Sustainable choices will also push more of us towards enjoying longer-lasting furniture that has been carefully selected and crafted.


As just mentioned, sustainability does and will continue to play a major role in the decision making of consumers. This continues on its upwards trend each year as more people refresh their homes but with an eco-friendlier focus.

Furniture that lasts longer, or is made from more sustainable materials like woods and recyclable metals will again appeal to many who want to do what they can to reduce their footprint. As a homeowner or property owner, you can safely invest in sustainable pieces knowing that they’ll not only lower your impact, but will be of interest to future buyers or tenants as well!

Is it here to stay? Absolutely! This trend pops up every year and we don’t see any sign of it slowing down as society continues moving towards more sustainable action.

Statement Pieces

In line with the bespoke furniture trend, it looks like more people will be moving away from generic pieces and focusing on those that really transform a space. There’s no more room for boring, we all want something that will stand out and change how we enjoy our favourite spaces!

Is it here to stay? For many people, this will always appeal and remain ‘trendy’. Whether it remains a general trend across furniture purchases is harder to predict in years to come though.

Dark Woods And Rich Tones

Dark woods and richer colours are a great way to add sophistication to a space, and the way that choices are going suggests more people will be looking for these bolder elements in their furniture in 2024.

Colours and woods that are likely to be popular include coffee browns, reds, walnut, cherry, and mahogany woods.

Is it here to stay? Whilst the use of woods is a trend that is here to stay, some colours can come in and out fashion more quickly. Darker woods are still a safe choice that won’t go out of fashion for a long time, and if you would like to use other colours that are darker, choosing options like earthy tones and warm ivories are a safer long-term option!

Hideaway Home Offices

Another trend that has been around since the pandemic, and one that will most certainly continue in our digital world is working from home. Even if it’s just a day or two a week, for many of us it makes life easier and can help to make work more enjoyable.

With that being said, a home office space in 2024 should do more than just provide a comfortable working space. It should hide all of your work stresses and untidy work documents so that you can enjoy much needed downtime in your home with family, which is why a hideaway solution is becoming more and more popular.

Is it here to stay? Yes! This is another trend that is rooting itself into the furniture scene – providing homeowners and tenants alike with a modern solution that’s designed specifically around the lifestyle of many people today.

Whether you simply want to improve your home, or want to ensure that your furniture choices will be loved by a future buyer or tenant, understanding these trends for the future is a great way to focus your decision and create something that will really last!
