IMM Home Show debuts new sleek furniture styles

If you've had the same discount window treatments, sofas and tables throughout your home for years, it may be time for an upgrade. One event that has provided an ample amount of inspiration for interior designers and homeowners alike is the IMM Home Show, according to The Huffington Post. This showcase is one of the most anticipated of the year, and for good reason. Here, professionals and amateurs alike can get ideas on what's up and coming in the world of furniture and design.

This year, more than 1,200 companies from 50 countries debuted everything from couches to kitchen accessories. One of the most popular trends that was spotted at the event was organic shapes. Furthermore, this style was seen in many pieces of European furniture, which is originally known for its hard edges, clean lines and modernist looks. Shapes that had more curves and natural flow reigned supreme at the event.

Slim, thin designs for seating in particular were also popular at the IMM Home Show. Gone are the days when sofas and chairs were oversized, bulky and more reminiscent of traditional styles dating back to the 19th century. Pieces with contemporary flair are now all the rage, and bold colors are also making themselves known, too. Even neon hues are becoming more prominent throughout furniture. 

Finding the right window treatments
Once you take advantage of these styles and bring new furniture into your home, you'll want to make sure you have the perfect window treatments to complement your living spaces. Whether you're interested in wood blinds or cellular shades, there are a few ways you can choose ones that correlate with your furnishings.

First, Elle Decor states that it's important to recognize that the fabric you choose will impact how long your window treatments last. The heaviness and quality of the material can be the difference between five and 10 years of use.

Next, getting the measurements correct is crucial. Bring in a professional if necessary to determine which length is right for your blinds, shades or drapes. Finally, don't rule out custom window treatments. Getting them customized can give you the opportunity to make sure they work seamlessly with your new furniture.

Whether you're remodeling your home now or waiting to see what other trends make themselves known, these tips can give you a great place to get started.
