If a room re-do is on your to-do list in the near future, count yourself lucky!  This year’s new home furnishings promise to be some of the most exciting we’ve seen in awhile.  

So many compelling new products, in fact, inspired us to devote an entire issue to the 10 most beautiful new furniture collections hitting stores in 2010.  As far as we know, it’s the first of kind. But our furture style issue is unique for another reason too.

For the first time in a long time, no single style trend is leading the way. We’re free today to use our location, our favorite vacation destination or even our personality as a catalyst for our home’s style.

 A wider variety of furniture styles is  making that easier to do. Vintage finishes are becoming as plentiful as polished, glamorous ones. Hefty, masculine looks are balancing thoroughly feminine looks. A trend to cleaner, contemporary styles is mixing with a trend to more historical references. And some these furniture trends are even combining in a single room!

With the housing market showing some signs of life, there’s a new energy to lighten up, freshen up and mix up furniture designs. Maybe it’s a hope that the worst is behind us, maybe it’s the energy we feel at the start of a new decade. Whatever it is, get set for some head-turning home fashions as we head deeper into the 21st century.
