Our Favorite 2016 Home Trends

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

The start of a new year is a natural time to take stock of your surroundings. If your home could use an update, there's no easier solution than adding a piece or two that reflect the top interior design trends of 2016. Here are five design influences that we expect to be big in the year ahead, along with Cisco Home's sustainable, made-in-LA takes on the trends:

"Old World" Style 

Furniture that might look at home in a grand estate a century ago will feel totally current in the coming year. While we’ll always love the clean lines of mid-century modern designs, we've also fallen for sofas, armchairs and ottomans with a romantic old-world element—think tufting, velvet upholstery or intricately carved legs, as seen on the Dromedary Sofa and Mandarin Ottoman, above.

Statement Pendant Lights 

More dramatic than ceiling lights, less attention-grabbing than chandeliers, long, hanging lights are having a big moment. Cisco Home pendant lamps come in a variety of eye-catching colors and shapes and are made of hand-blown glass by a local LA artisan. 

Dark Metals

Think beyond silver and gold, brass and nickel, in the year ahead, because inky dark metals are poised to be the next big thing. We have long loved dark metals such as iron and blackened stainless steel for their simple beauty and industrial edge. The Chain Side Table and the Pearl Sconce are two examples of this trend done right.

Globally Inspired Textiles

Upholstery and pillows in patterns inspired by cultures from every corner of the globe will continue to feel fresh in 2016. Our one-of-a-kind chairs and benches covered in vintage kilims have been incredibly popular, and next month we are launching Cisco Textiles, a new line of globally-inspired fabrics designed by our very own Maurishka Pinedo.

Unique and Upcycled Accent Pieces

We believe that every space needs an element that is completely unique—there's nothing like a vintage or upcycled piece to bring warmth and personality to a room. 2016 will see the design world passing over mass-produced accents in favor of one-of-a-kind pieces (like our Grape Box Side Table, each made with a unique box from a vineyard, and our framed Vintage Life Preserver) with their own special histories.

Which design trends are you looking forward to seeing more of in 2016? Let us know on the Cisco Home Facebook page.

Furniture Fresh from South Central L.A.

In our October 2011 issue we're spotlighting all of our favorite American-made design. To lend a hand, we've asked Michael and Ruth Storc of the great site Design Patriot to share their top Made in the USA finds with us. This week, they spotlight Cisco Home, a sustanable furniture company based in South Central Los Angeles.


When he was in his early twenties, Cisco Pinedo began making custom furniture for his neighbors out of his home garage in South Central Los Angeles. As his business grew, he started buying abandoned buildings on an industrial strip of Western Avenue in the downtrodden neighborhood where he started. Cisco Home still makes all their upholstered goods, case goods, and their welded and hand-blown glass lighting in Los Angeles (under the name Cisco Brothers), employing over 100 workers in their factories alone. Every item in the huge range of stylish pieces is made with an eye on sustainability and green practices.
