I thought you might enjoy hearing about some of the key trends in furniture for fall 2013, based on recent interior design markets.

Case goods

This term generally refers to furniture made of hard materials, such as wood, metal, glass or plastic. Examples of case goods include chests, dressers, bookshelves and cabinets.

Numerous resources offer solid wood as part of their quality and value equation. Contemporary and modern forms are in abundance this market in bedroom and dining selections. And U.S. manufacturers continue to offer plenty of great options in case goods.


Strong, vibrant colors are big for fall, and the choices include a rainbow of berry and orange, multiple blues, creative interpretations of green and vibrant blasts of yellow. It’s almost anything goes when it comes to color this season.

Many manufacturers have their eye on housing trends and have noted the need for small, medium and large. From apartment-size sofas and slimmed-down traditionals to massive sectionals, there are appropriate dimensions for every space.

It might be a plush, deep velvet fabric or a glimmer of silk or golden stitching, but subdued shine is showing up on sofas, chairs and even upholstered beds. Think Hollywood glamor, updated for busy households.

Home Entertainment

Wall units continue to make a comeback. Thinner sizes in media furniture adapt to thinner televisions.

TV lifts, which can raise a hidden television out of a furniture piece like a bed’s footboard, are on the rise.
