5 interior design trends to entertain this season

With cooler weather ahead, it’s time to look forward to fall gatherings and entertainment during the holiday season. Four Hands introduced more than 250 new items over the summer, and now the leader in furniture design and home decor offers styles designed to connect with Austin customers in the showroom at Four Hands Home.

From refreshed classics to new innovations, Four Hands has seen customers reorient their design towards pieces that will help them outfit spaces for comfortable living. “Ahead of the holiday season, gatherings are a top priority for many of our customers,” says Nealie Gillis, Four Hands Home Showroom Manager. “The showroom offers plenty of inspiration to create your home for visitors, with a wide assortment of interior and exterior styles.”

Ready to be inspired? Here are Four Hands Home’s top fall entertaining design trends to help you create comforting spaces for you, your family, and your guests.

Trend 1: Versatile seating

Customers love options. Whether you’re hosting a small dinner party indoors or a larger soiree in the backyard, make company feel at home in a relaxed space with comfortable, flexible seating that’s also stylish. A variety of versatile designs will be on display in the Four Hands Home showroom this season. For example, shop occasional swivel chairs for casual seating options and natural cover styles, like the Capella sofa with fully removable and machine washable covers that are handcrafted with durable stitching. Watch for the Capella and other slipcovered sofas in the showroom later this fall.

Trend 2: Handcrafted Details

Go back to basics with handcrafted accessories and decor designed to bring a polished look to any room. Gillis says handmade, expertly designed details will be a recurring theme in the Four Hands Home showroom this fall, including party-ready tableware and games. Four Hands’ first-ever line of dinnerware is made in small batches, and each piece is individually crafted in a woman-owned studio in Guadalajara, a region with a rich history of ceramic production. “You can feel the soul and artistry that has been nurtured and perfected over years in every piece,” says Daniel Lopes, Associate Product Developer at Four Hands.

Entertainment classics like tic-tac-toe and chess are also getting an upgrade this season. Handcrafted by skilled artisans, the premium gaming collection has been designed with quality, function and style in mind. With the clean, minimalist design of each piece, they make the perfect backdrop when not in play.

Trend 3: Textured Styles

Fashion-forward textured designs, including dimensional pieces, plush seating and textured art, are everywhere this season, helping to make a home even more inviting.

“Furniture with texture adds both aesthetic and physical value to the space,” says Adam Dunn, vice president of design for Four Hands. “It brings that warm, inviting feeling we all love to feel in a home, so for you and your guests, adding texture can encourage everyone to settle in.”

Trend 4: Performance fabrics

Performance fabric is a proven Four Hands staple. The practicality of an easy-to-clean yet comfortable and stylish piece makes these styles a no-brainer if you have kids, pets, or a clumsy hand with a coffee mug. Each style is designed to be stain resistant and durable, down to each individual thread. This means the liquid beads up on the surface, giving you time to soak up spills and avoid odors. Plus, the fabric is extensively abrasion tested, meaning it’s pilling and wear resistant, perfect for high traffic areas of your home. Sofas, accent chairs, ottomans, rugs and more, Austin’s showroom offers a wide variety of performance favorites for any style or space.

Trend 5: Outdoor comfort

Celebrate outdoors with natural materials like woven wicker, textured concrete and FSC-certified teak. Woven wicker carries the trend of natural fibers and textured styles outdoors, providing that soft, textured interest outdoors. Pair it with FSC-certified teak, designed to age beautifully outdoors. Applying indoor trends to the outdoors creates a seamless flow between spaces, making every part of a home even more relaxing.
