Must Have Homewares this Summer
Must Have Homewares this Summer

As you update your home for the summer, you may be ready to try out some new homewares to improve the look of your home. Changing the details of every room of your home including the furnishings, home décor, lighting, and rugs can completely change the atmosphere of your space.

For this summer, there are some distinct trends that have emerged that are sure to spark your creativity. Here are the must have homewares in summer.



Earthy Pastel Hue Rugs

Beginning with the choices of Serenity and Rose Quartz for 2016, Pantone correctly identified the trends of pastels that will continue to be popular in 2017. While last year brought us spring colours, this year you should opt for this year’s trending colours to create a tailored look that is perfect for the summer.

Nature-Inspired Neutrals, Sunny Yellow, Soft Gray, and Flirty Pink are just some of the colours that you'll find in homes these summer and the Trellis Rug andPeony Rug  are perfect for introducing these colours into your home.

Metal Pendant Lights

Another trend that is emerging is polished metals and white finishes. Lighting is the perfect way to reflect this trend by installing pendant lights in your home. The Stella Chrome Pendant Light and the Nova Pendant Light are the perfect options for updating your home by offering a beautiful focal point for the room while casting interesting shadows upon the walls. Metal lights look chic in any room and are perfect for the dining or living room.

Mid-century Modern Occasional Chairs

Mid-century modern is still in vogue as we move into the summer. Occasional chairs, such as the Hamilton Chair and Aviator Egg Chairs will add distinction to your living room. Mid-century modern is a trend that is well-respected because of the craftsmanship and eye-catching designs that these furniture pieces make use of.

The recreation of historic pieces is also another way that mid-century modern is capturing the attention of new audiences. These classic designs are now available with new colours and textures that are perfect for updating your home.

Durable Leather Sofas

There is nothing more important that having fabrics in your home that are designed to stand up to the high temperatures and frequent guest visits that occur during the summer. In fact, more and more people are opting for fabrics that make their homes look elegant and stunning while also being stain-resistant.

As a result, the Lannister Leather 2 Seater Sofa and the Oxford 3 Seater Leather Sofa are two great options for updating your living room this summer. In addition to providing durable upholstery, these sofas also offer plenty of comfortable seating. Whether you're ready to relax or invite some friends over, a reliable leather sofa is the best option for seating and to keep you cool during the summer.

Natural Texture Cushions

Natural textures are another exciting trend for this summer. With organic elements, you can bring a bit of nature into your home. Luxury cushions can help to update your current interiors while also keeping you comfortable. In addition, they also bring out the charm of your furnishings.

If you are looking for some new cushions for your home, consider the Brick Pattern Grey Leather Cushion or Honeycomb Leather Cushion. You can use these cushions to complement your upholstery or to contrast them with the theme of your space.


Adding unique decorative pieces to your home is our last must have trend for this summer. In fact, unique pieces are now available in metal and neutral colours with interesting textures to complement the other trends that we’ve already discussed. Consider objects like the Watercraft Boat Aluminium Nickel Finish or the Blue Blanco Tile Coasters to bring a fresh look to your home.

These beautiful ideas will provide you with easy ways to update your home for the summer. Now that you're done with the old and are ready for something new, you’ll find everything that you need for your home here at Koala Living!
