Having winded up a decade filled with numerous sets of designs, ranging from old pieces to those inspired by Memphis, all eyes are set on what this year has to offer. For instance, curves are showing what they have to offer, indigenous things like textiles and wood are finding their way back into modern homes. Having analyzed the trends carefully, we predict that these trends are going to be dominant in 2023.
1. Built-In Seating
Be it a cozy reading niche or a window-side perch with amazing views, an in-built seating adds character to your room and can be a very effective way of saving space. These kind of architectural designs are more likely to dominate in 2023. It is a trend that has been in existence for quite sometime and a good number of people are familiar with it.
Arch is another design to watch out for in 2020. To be specific, the curved windows and doorways that were used in Greece’s cave houses. They have a design that is clean lined and smooth even without the ornate detailing. It is an ideal option especially if you are not ready to commit to structural changes in your house. Try it out with an arched wall mirror, you won’t regret it!
3. Fat Furniture
It is evident that curvy shapes are taking form as furniture. Pieces like divans, sofas and occasional chairs are being realigned through undulating. These form of designs are inspired by decor from late in the 70s. Rounded designs could be the new right angle in 2020. Fat furniture is advantageous in the sense that it can fit almost anywhere in your house. You don’t have to move anything in your house, because it blends in with most themes. They also tend to be more comfortable!
4. Organic Shapes
As much as free-form designs are becoming a trend, we foresee organic shaped designs dominating this year. They are almost everywhere, from candles to bath mats. Some of the designs to watch out for are Cold Picnic’s collection of hand made rugs. They feel more of abstract works than floor coverings. In addition, they are very comfortable, making them one of the favourites to dominate this year.
5. Dusty Green
As much as classic blue grew so much in popularity, we predict a year dominated by dusty greens. They are muted tones that work perfectly as palatable pop color for those that prefer sticking to neutral designs. As you might have noticed, most people are bringing back the old sense of fashion, going for designs that rocked back in the days. So don’t be surprised if dusty green dominates the stage in 2023.
6. Modern Wood Paneling
As much as wood paneling isn’t exactly associated with modern touch, that analogy is more likely to change this year. When applied at interesting angles or done in a skinny slatted style, wood walls can actually feel unfussy and fresh. The advantage with this is that there is no room it can’t reach, be it kitchens or bathrooms, wood paneling brings the much needed warmth that has been missing.
7. Fiber Art
For a long time now, fiber artists have been showcasing their designs at fairs and fine art galleries, but that is more likely to change in 2020. This is the year you you’ll see this type of art make way into homes. Art like elaborately knotted macrame pieces and intricately woven tapestries are ideal for any home. Artists like Windy Chien, Cindy Hsu Zell and Meghan Shimek create all kind of commissions, from large-scale to smaller, ready-to-buy pieces that work perfectly on their own. These pieces can also be included on gallery walls.
8. Statement Tiles
After the white subway tile was profiled in the last decade, it is expected that the odds would swing the other way. Statement tiles are more likely to dominate this year and maybe this decade. We predict that patterned, bold and lighter tiles will be used at large in 2020. They might not have been so dominant in the last decade but this year could be theirs to reckon.
9. Indoor Gardens
Given the popularity of living walls and indoor plants in recent times, it can be predicted that green thumbs would want to depict the same form with an in door garden. Small scale plots come with indoors, giving residents an opportunity to interact with nature from the comfort of their homes.
10. Cane Detailing
Women materials in the form of seagrass pendant lights, rattan furniture and jute rugs have taken the interior design stage by a storm. All trends, however, have transformed over time. It is a second act that is involves the details of cane, a trend you must have noticed on modern furniture.
