“Gone are the days of the classic rules of design. Specific styles seem to be disappearing; there is a marriage of a lot of styles into one creative space.”
It is tricky to predict the future. Experts across the world struggle to determine where the world might be in fifty years time, and we analyze which shape the interior world will take for years to come.
As expected, technology is set to play a huge role in the future of interior design. But which technologies? And how might we use them?
1. Smart Home Technology
It’s 2017 and smart homes are everywhere. Barely a day goes by without one of the tech giants releasing a new gadget designed to make our homes more connected.
For any interior design, the tech is becoming a huge part of the job. When the interior designer is incorporating design with hi-tech, the unusually harmonious look speakers, home theater, computer, office equipment and much more are included.
After all, this is the epitome of modern fashion, which simply cannot walk out of step with the progress. Therefore, the hi-tech design is ideal for housing a modern man who keeps up with the times.
The next-generation home experience grows from a home that responds to you; it’s the perfect temperature, the perfect level of light, the perfect volume, with incredible experiences in picture and sound. Home automation is the key that draws it all together, seamlessly uniting all of your home’s systems in an easy-to-use way.
A quality design makes a statement for his owners. A quality design is one that fits the owners needs, the one that can be felt properly by the owner and attributed to him even if it`s not envisioned by him. Through this lenses, but from the other end we can see it in reverse.
Our personality is shaped through time and it can greatly evolve but it never changes completely, we are transforming ourselves through experiences of all kinds; we live.
“The design world is taking a cue from music and fashion—lyrics and clothing are stepping back in time to a 50’s and 60’s feel good era that was happy, understated and natural. This laid back way of thinking is showing up everywhere in interior designs.”
Designing for the future will mean accommodating more than one generation, a growing population, and rising life expectancy while reckoning with a decrease in available space, a critical need for sustainable building practices, and ever-evolving technology.
Design has the unique ability to bring together allied professions, solve problems from multiple points of view, and put society’s well-being at the forefront. This notion of the convergence of people, place, and work, and how we think about design in the context of these things is critical to what’s next for design industry.
We would define that the future is dictated by the trends as the styling, colors, patterns, materials and shapes of a particular season that has a long-term influence on the market. A current trend can be derived from previous season’s trends and also current world affairs and events.
In the interiors market we are more focused on “macro” trends (bigger and longer lasting) than “micro” trends, which are more common in fast fashion.
