Yes, boxy furniture is back in style this year. However, remember to mix up the clean straight lines with some curves and soft edges so that your living room doesn't look too cold and formal. White is a good colour that goes with the boxy design as it gives off a minimalist vibe, but neutral colours or pastels are pretty as well. 

8. Vintage sofas

Last but not least, vintage sofas are a big hit this year. The longing for nostalgia has never been so intense, but you might be surprised that most of these vintage furniture designs are new so they have a unique contemporary twist which compliments the old-fashioned classy retro style of the 60s.
