How do today's consumers feel about the living room furniture and accessories they currently own? More than 1,600 consumers provide the answers as part of Furniture/Today and Apartment Therapy's exclusive 2014 Home Decorating Survey.
The data shows that less than half of consumers are content with their overall living room furniture. That contentment varies by product category, with consumers most happy with their wall décor and general decorative accessories and least happy with their area rugs and lamps. Blues, grays and greens are named as this year's go-to design colors by consumers answering our exclusive survey. The blue shades run the gamut from peacock to navy to aqua while greens go from pistachio to celery to sage.
The data shows gray as the neutral color of choice, topping the innocuous brown tones of cream, beige and ivory. Furniture/Today and New York-based Apartment Therapy fielded an online survey in January to Apartment Therapy readers. The survey asked questions about decorating their home and garnered responses from 1,608 consumers.
