Trends for 2013...We've been on a buying trip

It's been an amazing start to the year at John Dick & Son and it's hard to believe spring is almost upon us - even if the current weather doesn't suggest it!  The winter months are exciting for us because we get to see all of the new furniture and the latest trends at the various furniture exhibitions we attend. We've just been on our buying trips and we really are particularly excited with the selection on offer and the pieces we've bought for the showroom.

Many of the new pieces have already started to arrive in the showroom and we'll keep you up to date with all the latest arrivals on our Facebook page but, we thought we'd share some of the 2013 trends with you on the blog, we would also love to hear what you think about them.

Looking through the furniture shows there are some obvious trends - painted finishes for open plan living (particularly in the kitchen/living areas) is a clear favourite for 2013 and we've already got some of the collection for you to see in the showroom.

We saw lots of multi-functional quirky and funky furniture and yes, we've ordered some for the showroom. Accent pieces are also very prevalent and many of these will shortly be on show in the showroom but, here's a sneak preview of some of the sofas that are starting to arrive.

There are some other trends to look out for like high gloss finishes, chrome and metallics and, tailored woods. Leather and fabric combinations are also strong this year; we've been delighted with the response to this type of design so, we've ordered more for this season, here's an example of what to expect.

We also liked the strong Scandinavian influence this year like this beautiful Horizon sofa and oak dining range.

We hope there's something here that you like however, we would stress the only way to really appreciate the quality and scale of these beautiful pieces is to come in and have a look around the showroom. We believe there's something for everyone in this year's range and we hope you can come in, enjoy a coffee and, see some of the wonderful new furniture we have to offer.
