Is purple furniture in style in 2023?

My mother has a very strong reaction to purple; she hates it, but I love it, especially when it comes in shades like lilac.

I can see why this might be a polarising colour – deep purple does remind me of rock music and my sister’s bedroom from the 90s, but that’s no reason to discard every shade of purple ever.

With the rise in pastel colour palettes over the past couple of years, soft purples have been very on trend. In turn, so are purple things, like purple furniture, decorations, paint and clothing.

In 2023, purple furniture can be found in magazines, showrooms and furniture retailers – consumers can’t get enough of it. To be honest, neither can I; I have a purple locker in my office and purple painted doors on my landing.

Colour psychologists say we associate purple with luxury and power; according to ‘the blue tones’ in purple ‘bring in a sense of relaxation and stability, which alongside the energy of red synthesises to create a feeling of wisdom and good sense.’

Basically, purple is a pretty good colour to have in your home; it’s bang on trend and it’ll make us feel wise and relaxed – who doesn’t want that?!
