Is black furniture in style for your home in 2023?
When I was furnishing my new home back in 2020, it was clear to see how popular black furniture was – it was everywhere: IKEA, Oliver Bonas, Heals, Made.com (RIP), but two years down the line is it still as popular?
Well, from my research (which included lots of internet window shopping), black furniture is still very much in style and readily available.

Not only is black considered sexy, edgy and cool, but it’s hard-wearing, timeless and goes with lots of different colour schemes.
This makes black a great choice for interiors because it’s going to stand the test if time which is exactly what good furniture should do.
When I had my first ‘proper’ job, I bought myself a black wardrobe and chest of draws from IKEA to update my childhood bedroom (I was still living with my parents at the time); I was obsessed with them and ten years down the line, they still looks stylish and in good condition.
According to Swns Digital, 61% of Americans consider the environment when making furniture choices so picking a colour, like black, that’s going to be in style for a long time is increasingly popular. Therefore, I can’t see black furniture going out of style anytime soon.
