Home decor is a crucial part of everyone’s life being that interior design represents a perfect outlet for people to express their creativity and personality while striving to create their dream living space.
The global home decor market was valued at $616.6 billion in 2019, and is estimated to reach $838.6 billion by 2027
But, where exactly has that led us? These are definitely good news showing that people have seen the importance of home decor and that there is an already developed fast growing market for future retailers. Big retail companies have of course seen this opportunity and have jumped on this train on time, making home decor items available everywhere - even in your local Walmart.
Retail chains are now offering home decor items for seemingly low prices lacking originality and design in order to attract the wider audience. From “Live, Laugh, Love” signs to basic designs, the widely placed products lost the initial touch of originality and creativity it should provide.
That is why people are now turning to hand-crafted, original pieces that will enrich their living spaces while supporting artist from all around the world
What does the future of home goods retail look like?
You have to agree that if you had to choose between an already seen, dull piece for your house and hand-crafted and artisan made item - you would choose the second one.
People do not mind spending an extra buck for that perfect element for their home and having a statement piece that would align with their personality and already established interior.

Handcrafted decor is getting the spotlight it always needed!
People have seen the importance and value of unique, hand crafted and original pieces. They have realized that an item like that can impact living spaces by simply adding the needed colors and design to their home.
Are you wondering what is the reason behind the rise of demand for handcrafted pieces?
First of all, we have to put a spotlight on environmental sustainability as now more than ever we should take all the steps to protect our actual living space - the Earth. When work is done by hand, it leaves a much smaller carbon footprint spending less energy resources to create a perfect piece. We are making sure to lower the amount of mass production and therefore decrease the impact big factories have on our environment.

Home decor products that are gaining all the attention
Up until recently, when thinking about statement pieces people drifted towards usually big and often expensive decor items and then taking a lot of effort to adjust their room interior to that one important part of their living space.
Now, the emphasis is put on small yet very eye-catching additions to their already established space vision. The importance is now laying in the multi-use and versatility as well as a somewhat effortless set-up.
That means that home decor items such as throw blankets and throw pillows became a must-have piece for any living area. That is because those pieces bring a great amount of color and texture to any room as well as adjust well with different pieces of furniture. For example, an artisan throw with a unique design can easily become a statement piece of your room when combining it with your regular sofa or bed. By doing so people found a perfect way to express their creativity and personality without having to spend a lot of money on it. The beauty lies in the versatile use of the throws as there are many different ways to place them, getting a different set-up each time.
And there is no cozy living space without some throw pillows added to the picture. Hand-crafted and original pillows add so much to the atmosphere of your home, while also easily combined with any type of furniture you wish to accent.
These items are a perfect way for anyone to upgrade their interior design by simply throwing and tossing these pieces around, painting a different picture every time they do so. One day you can toss them in the corner of the couch, tomorrow you can neatly set them on your bed or use them for your outdoor space. People saw an unlimited amount of possibilities for interpreting these pieces into already established living spaces. But the importance of it lies in the design of the pillows and throws. For them to create the needed effect, people have to count on the uniqueness and the quality of design. That is exactly why they choose hand crafted and artisan made pieces - to make sure that special touch to their room is indeed special.
Home decor trends come and go, but what must stay important is that we ensure that originality never fades away. The home goods retail is on a good track of making the hand-crafted pieces a synonym for quality and originality, all while being sustainable and supporting artists and creators from around the globe.
