Spending so much time at home during lockdown has given us ample opportunity to appraise our current interior choices, and make changes where we feel something needs a refresh. But what popular furniture pieces are we currently coveting?
Research from blinds specialists, Blinds Hut, has analysed Google Searches over a three-month period to uncover which items of furniture we've been buying throughout lockdown.
It emerged that we like to relax in style as ‘recliner sun lounger’ has seen the biggest rise in interest, with Google searches increasing by a staggering amount (10,244%) over a three-month period.
The second most popular furniture style we've got been indulging in is a ‘rattan furniture set’, with Google searches increasing 10,154% over a three-month period; indeed rattan and wicker are one of the biggest home interior trends for spring/summer.
