Top 10 interior design trends for 2015

Want to know what interiors are on trend in 2015? We've compiled a top 10 list:

1. Big, Comfy Corner Sofas
The corner sofa is back in a big way! As living rooms have become more relaxed places for lounging, we have less need for formal sofas and more love for a versatile padded zone that lets us sprawl out however we like. 

2. The Deep Blue
Traditionally, blue has been a calming colour. We think people like the idea of cozying up in the hues of the deepest sea. If you've already done black or charcoal, here's a new way to add richness and drama.

3. Old Table, Mod Seats
We are seeing a lot of interiors in which contemporary chairs are paired with rustic tables. By pairing two things that don't seem to go together, you are actually emphasising the best qualities of both.

4. Black Window Sashes
When you draw a dark line around something, you call attention to it. The dark colour not only draws the eye to the window as well as the view outside.

5. Vintage Tubs
In this digital world, it's sometimes nice to retreat to something low-tech. Most vintage-style tubs don't have jets or infinity edges, but they do allow for an old-fashioned, all-embracing soak. 

6. Libraries as Decor
There's something soothing about being surrounded by books. And now libraries are making a comeback, despite the proliferation of e-readers. Libraries preserve memories of the characters, the words, and the stories that have touched us—and remind us of where we've been and who we want to be.

7. Pale Driftwood Finishes
When it comes to wood finishes, we're looking toward the beach and its pale-gray shades of driftwood. Products in this hue have the softness of lighter-coloured boards but the gravitas of dark planks.

8. A Taste of the Hive
Geometric hexagons and honeycomb shapes are hot—whether in the form of chairs like these or in a tile or fabric pattern. 

9. Four-Poster Beds
Four-poster beds are hardly new, but like many classic furniture designs, they they are having a moment. People love the romance of the pillared pieces. Plus, their cubelike form suggests four walls, which gives loungers a feeling of privacy and sanctuary, especially in loftlike spaces.

10. The Statement Light
The benefit of these beauties is that they are beautiful no matter which way the switch is flipped: Off, they look like sculpture; on, they cast lovely light and shadow patterns around the room.
