If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration for your child’s room, these kid’s chair trends for 2018 are sure to be just the thing to help you plan a room makeover. Once limited to being a purely functional piece of furniture that simply needed to be able to help kids sit upright, kids chairs today have become a fun way to change the look of a room. In this mini-guide, we share a few of our favourite kid’s chair trends that show just how versatile this item of furniture can be in your child’s room.
Our Favourite Kid’s Chair Trends
Some of the kid’s chair trends we are loving this year include the following:
This year, we can expect to see bolder, brighter hues, with plenty of juicy, fruity colours in lush fabrics. One simple way to inject some colour into your little one’s room is to add a comfortable, bright beanbag chair, or some colourful scatter cushions that can easily be mixed and matched. Look for vibrant colours such as tangerine, cherry, blueberry, plum, lime, and berry, which will add just the right amount of fun to both boy’s and girl’s room. These colours also look great with monochrome palettes as well as neutral colours and wood, making them surprisingly versatile.
The modern boho trend shows no sign of losing favour. In a child’s room, a carefully chosen statement chair is a simple way to inject a touch of boho charm. We love this beautifully-made Malawian Chair, which features a major boho trend – rattan furniture – along with a uniquely hand-crafted design. This chair is made for little ones, with just enough space to sit snugly. It can also be used for decor, tea parties or even to house a beloved teddy or doll. Choose from natural rattan or try a soft white or grey painted version for a gentler take on this trend.
One way to complement a colourful kids room is to bring in some clean lines and simple design in soft pastel colours. Pastel touches are set to be a major trend this year. A pastel colour dip chair will add just the right amount of trendy coolness to your child’s room, balancing out the quirkiness and offering a surprisingly useful chair for the play or art table.
Metallic shades remain a big trend for the year ahead, with warmer-toned metals continuing their moment. Copper and bronze add a touch of warmth along with a hint of contemporary style that balances out boho, retro and colourful touches. We adore the Replica Tolix Chair in warm copper.
Lush velvet accessories.
Finally, to finish off your kid’s chairs, a few velvet scatter cushions are sure to add plenty of comfort. Velvet remains a popular choice for cushions and other decorative touches, offering plenty of sumptuous texture, deep colour, and a soft finish. Mix and match your child’s favourite fruity colours, or choose a single colour scheme that blends well with colourful or metallic seating.
