To come to some sensible advise on furniture trends for the coming years, we always fall back the key trends found on the Milan furniture fair.
This Milan Furniture Fair reveals the biggest design trends for 2018.
If you follow any interior designers on Instagram, you’ll no doubt have noticed photos from Milan Furniture Fair (Salone del Mobile Milan) dominating your feed in recent weeks.
This annual event, now in its 56th year, lures the biggest industry names from around the globe for the largest trade event of its kind.
SofaSale designers attended this year’s fair to observe what’s next in the ever-changing world of home design.
We would like to give you’re a sneak preview of the latest trends for the coming year and see what we expect will hit the Hong Kong Furniture market in 2018.
An abundance of warm and earthy colours were on display at this year’s fair, replacing the more minimal palette of previous seasons.
Tones of sienna, tan, terracotta through to stronger rust and russet were used all over on walls in rooms, as well as furniture and accent decor objects.
Popular accent colours on show were black forest, emerald green and watermelon red.
A standout experience at this year’s event was The Visit – a truly immersive experience into an early 1800s Milanese apartment where the current colour trends were played out in the most sophisticated and tangible way.
Designed by Studiopepe, each room tells a story through the layers of furnishings, and shows how to mix terracotta, peach and pink with green in just the right amount.
The trend of concealing storage and tableware was reversed this season, with plenty of freestanding cabinets with glass doors and open shelf racks for showing off crockery.
The latest collection by Vincent Van Duysen for When Objects Work featured earthy colours in terracotta, glazed ceramic, glass and wood finishes. You would want to show them off.
Wallpaper in the living spaces is back and here to stay.
The key trends are either geometric or organic. Geometric designs take cues from the Memphis style with dashes and stripes like the Weft Collection at Texturae, (which are similar to Greg Natale for Porter’s Paints.
Organic styles were seen with soft and watercolour markings, or paint splotches, such as the handmade wallpapers by Martyn Thompson.
These tend to be easier to live with, as they form a softer backdrop than bold geometric designs. Stay away from floral or damask designs.
Milan showed a move towards comfort in couches, with many low, puffy, curved and plump shapes.
A favourite was an interesting sofa Isla designed by Note for Sancal. It is almost like a daybed platform, with a backrest which divides the seating into three parts.
Many designers took to showcasing fringing on furniture for a luxurious look with an edge.
The fair showed a move towards comfort in couches, with many curved and plump shapes.
Referencing 1950s glamour, long fringing was used as a skirt on marble coffee tables and also running along the bottom of a red velvet sofa at Editions.
Our suggestion to you: try introducing fringing with a few stand out cushions for a quick update.
Homewares and styling
On the topic of styling, it is ‘more is more’ at the moment, however an edited selection goes a long way.
Popular styles and materials displayed on homewares at Milan include terrazzo, velvet, ottomans and side tables, lamps, brass objects, handmade glazed ceramics, mouth-blown coloured vases, wooden vases.
Indoor plants have been in our homes for a while now, and there was no indication of this changing anytime soon.
Textile wall hangings are still a strong trend, especially with a modern take.
In terms of decorative art, think outside the box. Textile wall hangings are still a strong trend, especially with a modern take.
Studio Toogood designed wall quilts using a combination of sewed on fabric pieces and painted on colour to create organic shapes and markings.
The move towards colour is continuing in the bathroom, not only through tiles, but also basins and toilets.
We saw colours such as soft plum, dusty blue, dark green, beige, brown and charcoal by Cielo.
These colours let a basin blend into a dark and moody bathroom, without the contrast of the usual white.
If budget is no problem, then a bath cut entirely out of a slab of brown or black stone seen at Boffi and Agape is a knockout.
The final verdict
What’s in: Warm colours, natural stone, cacti, curved shaped furniture, wicker, cordless lamps, black kitchens, portable lighting
What’s out: Florals, damask, polished glossy stone, white kitchens and bathrooms, copper and rose gold finishes, minimalism, shiny high-gloss finishes
What’s next: Suede, more designers collaborating with mass-produced furniture brands, Asian-inspired design, red accents.

Hong Kong apartments require efficient storage furniture solutions. Whether your home is large or small, the opportunity for added storage is always welcome. When choosing a bed with hidden storage, think about how frequently you need to access your things, ottoman-style lifting beds give maximum storage and gentle finger lifting, the best solution for frequent use.
Review our Milton Storage Beds in below video.
Another way of creating more floor space in your tight Hong Kong apartment is using the double function of your furniture think about, a stylish living-room sofa, which build-in foldable double bed. Enabling you to transform your living-room into a cosy bedroom in seconds. Your wall mounted TV will serve you well from a sitting-lounge postion to your lay down bed position. Below on of our best selling Sofa Beds, the G611 SofaBed.
A more traditional way to create storage, is off course and wall storage cabinet. At SofaSale we custom-make them for you. So you can utilise your full wall to create the maximum amount of storage space, from floor to ceiling. Good to know we use recycled wood, which gives full character to your furniture.

What can we learn from the Ibiza lifestyle?
In Ibiza of course, the lifestyle is being outside most of the time, but in winter or evening it’s also nice to be able to enjoy it inside. It’s really nice to have an outdoor living room or a indoor garden, a green interior. The relation between in- and outside can be used freely! In a way similar to the Hong Kong climate..
An easy and effective way is to incorporate plants. They have a way of adding some dimensions into a room, bring colour and texture, but most important making any space feel lively and bright.
A large plant can sit in their pot, and be the statement piece whilst other plants can be hoisted up slightly on a small pedestal to add height to a room. They can also create contrast and are great when you have a white canvas, it adds a pop that draws the eye. It’s easy to create your own unique little greenhouse with mixing some of your favourite ones.
