Smaller upholstery items are on the rise. It may be hard to believe that here in Texas, where bigger is better, furniture is scaling down, but there are many factors that make this fun-size furniture a practical and cost effective solution.
One of the advantages of scaled-down upholstery is that it takes economic and environmental awareness into consideration. Many consumers these days are moving into urban areas due to a concern for the environment and a desire for a shorter commute. So for reduced-size, metropolitan spaces, this scale of furniture is more practical, and it also uses fewer materials to make.
Younger consumers who are just starting out, and older consumers who are looking to downsize, are two significant groups that are also considering smaller furniture. It’s a lower-cost way to completely transform a space with a new look that is both stylish and practical.
Because of its size, this furniture is usually found in a more contemporary style. Clean lines and a minimalistic approach keep these items from overpowering small spaces. And since the contemporary style is continually on the rise, this scale and type of furniture is right on trend.
So the next time you’re out shopping, take a look at these smaller pieces that pack a fresh design punch. They can be rearranged easily, they cost less, they require fewer materials to manufacture and they can fit into nearly any size living space.
