Staying classy and doing everything with a splash of sophistication becomes the key factor. Aged metals, glass, wicker and natural wood are popular options, the idea here being to maintain the heart and essence of the trend.

Custom-made: Custom-made furniture is another trend that’s been doing the rounds successfully.
