Trends That Are Popular in 2014 - Railroad Cart Coffee Tables
2013 had a lot of decorating trends that were overdone. Think mason jar crafts and chevron patterns on everything. The pieces from last year that will transition into 2014 are staple furniture pieces. Initially the trend of railroad cart coffee tables was surprising because it was a rustic/country piece that was used in more modern rooms.
This balances the other trend of 2013: gray walls. This color can tend to feel depressing and cold. Warm wood tones help to counteract this. If you've wanted this piece since last year the price has really dropped a lot.
Before it became popular you may have been able to find an original factory cart in an antique store. Now that is much rarer. Instead, reproductions cut costs but they may not be as sturdy and as substantial. If you've liked it since last year it may be time to buy this piece of statement furniture. Just make sure that you'll still want it in 2015 instead of being influenced by trends.
