Interior design is likely to come to the forefront in 2013 as more and more homeowners dedicate themselves to improving the style of their homes over the next 12 months. It is a great time to add to your designer furniture collection because iconic pieces from some of the world’s most famous furniture designers such as Charles Eames, Eero Aarnio and Arne Jacobsen are becoming more and more affordable and pieces such as Aarnio’s Ball Chair or Charles Eames’ Lounger can add to the style of a property no end.
It goes without saying that everyone will have their own ideas of how they want to decorate their properties but the universal appeal of furniture from the golden age of design have remained so timeless that many homeowners will be turning to the likes of Eames, Wegner, Jacobsen and Nelson for inspiration when it comes to rejuvenating the interior design of their home in 2013.

Furniture Designers to Inspire You in 2013

If you’re planning on really adding to the style of your property over the next twelve months then there will be some designers to keep an eye out for due to the iconic nature of their designs and the timeless appeal of the pieces of furniture they crafted. Some of the main names to be aware of when decorating your home in 2013 include:

Hans Wegner:

If you’re after a luxurious lounger for your home in 2013, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better option than the stunning Hans Wegner Ox Chair and footstool pictured. Wegner was born in Denmark in 1914 and went on to create some of the 20th Century’s most striking, unusual and forward thinking pieces of furniture and he was certainly someone was considerably ahead of his time.
He was particularly famed for his chairs such as the Elbow Chair and Shell Chair and if you want to create a classic yet contemporary style in your property in 2013, Hans Wegner should be one of your first choices when it comes to picking out your seating.

George Nelson:

When it comes to bringing your home to life, it’s not all about your furniture choices. It is important to consider the other elements of interior design such as decorations for each room.
It is surprising how something as simple as a clock can completely change the look and feel of a room and if you’re after a clock that is a little out of the ordinary, then the clocks from George Nelson will tick all of the right boxes. You can see some of his most striking clocks to the right and, as you can see, they definitely elevate the style of a room.

Eero Aarnio:

Many homeowners will really want to make their properties stand out from the crowd in 2013 and, in order to do this, will opt for a statement piece of furniture such as the incredibly iconic Eero Aarnio Ball Chair pictured. Pieces of designer furniture like this define a generation of design and become so timeless that they are just as relevant in interior design today as when the piece was first released back in 1966.
Such is the gravitas of the Ball Chair, it was once described by the New York Times as the “most comfortable chair” which, by anyone’s standards is a pretty good claim to fame.

For those people looking to refresh the look of their homes in 2013, these are just a few of the designers to consider. There are, of course, plenty of other names to keep an eye out for such as Charles Eames, Arne Jacobsen and Eileen Gray.
