Top 10 Interior Design Trends for 2022
Being ahead of the curve and aware of the latest trends is important for thousands of households who see their home as a statement of modern thinking. Whether it be specific color trends, exciting and bold patterns, or new materials being incorporated into the aesthetic, homeowners everywhere are invested in the hottest interior design trends.
By their very nature, trends come in and out of fashion. It's what makes them so appealing to many interior designers, who strive to discover the secrets of what the modern homeowner wants for their living spaces. After the challenging ride we've had this past year, 2022 has been earmarked as a big one for many home decor trends to make a huge comeback.
This article will highlight the top ten interior design trends we believe will make a huge splash in many homes worldwide.
Pattern-work has always been a staple of many home interiors, and the trend does not appear to be slowing down in 2022. Overdoing it with patterns can often leave a space feeling slightly overwhelming, but there are sure-fire ways to incorporate them smoothly into modern living rooms.
Bold patterns are often used for carpets and accessories, with check and geometric patterns thought to be rising in popularity. They are often a true statement of personality and can bring energy to a room, and provide focus on specific features of interior spaces.
Sustainable Furniture Design
In recent years there has been an enormous push toward creating a more sustainable environment to counter the damage that has been done over the past few decades. Many designers are working hard to ensure that they only use raw materials that are best suited to minimize our environmental impact and are as eco-friendly as possible.
Our Ethnicraft furniture can be incorporated into all rooms around the house with a range of tables, chairs, and beds all designed with sustainability as a critical focus. Built using high-quality materials for maximum durability, this range will cater to those of you who wish to do your part to protect the environment for years to come.
Daring Color Choices
While some may opt for a more subtle color palette for interior spaces, many are choosing to flood their rooms with statement designs reminiscent of the 60s and 70s. With how complex modern living has become, it is little wonder that many nostalgic people are designing their living spaces to remind them of simpler times.
Bold color choices that were perhaps reserved for small sections are now all the rage, with new color favorites such as Pantone's Very Peri doing particularly well. An unusual decorating trend that is growing in resurgence is all-black interiors. Our black Madison Plywood armchair would fit perfectly with this minimalist aesthetic.
You will be hard-pressed to find many modern indoor spaces that do not incorporate natural decor elements into their design. Indoor plants have seen a considerable rise in popularity as more people seek to bring the beauty of the outdoors into their homes. Gardening has always been seen as a relaxing pastime, with homeowners now embracing it from indoors.
Additionally, natural elements and color palettes such as beige and brown remain very popular interior design trends. Interior designers are utilizing the calming presence of greens and blues to complement the indoor greenery to create unique, relaxing spaces that homeowners love to spend time in.
Return to Tradition
The past few years have been tricky for a lot of people. As a result, many homeowners and designers are creating living spaces that offer a sense of comfort and grounding. While some may see traditional color trends as dull and dated, many embrace these simplistic interior design trends for their living or dining room.
Often utilizing neutrality, consistent symmetry, and heavy, ornate furniture made from natural wood, traditional home decor designs will often rely on antique pieces and decorative objects rather than bold colors to really give the space its gravitas.
That's not to say that these spaces are bereft of any color. Traditional areas are brought to life with various dark, rich tones and colors. Our teak wood dining table might be exactly what you're looking for if you want a truly traditional dining room design.
Straight edges and angular corners are no longer the go-to design trends in 2022. Instead, many modern home spaces are turning to rounded furniture and appliances with curved edges. Again, it could be the sense of comfort that these designs bring that makes these pieces so widespread, rather than the more regimented and formal feel of hard edges and corners.
While most prevalent examples are soft furnishings, soft-edged tables, and rounded dining chairs are also becoming staple features of modern homes. Our sohoConcept harmony sofa could be the key missing piece that will transform your living space.
Technology and Gadgets
The world is becoming more reliant on technology with each passing year. The level of innovation that has seen our phones and computers growing ever smarter is now starting to enter our homes, with every interior designer looking for ways to work with high-tech homes.
As home offices are a key trend of 2022, thanks mainly to the continued incorporation of working from home off the back of the pandemic, tech-enhanced furniture is now becoming highly functional and aesthetically appealing.
Self-shading window treatments remove the need for fiddly blinds. Remote control covers can hide your televisions and protect them when not in use, and you can alter everything from room temperature to music volume with just a mobile phone. There are now even beds with built-in speakers and wi-fi connections!
There is nothing new about seeing things hanging up on the walls. Traditionally, you might expect to find classic paintings and family photos. Now, many homeowners are incorporating an entire art wall into their spaces.
Neon art signage seems to be a growing interior design trend for 2022. To complement the prevalence of curved furniture, paintings and pieces with soft edges add to the calming atmosphere of many rooms. Wall art designed to inspire and uplift is also becoming very popular.
Biophilic Design Trends
Much of what seems to be popular in today's home living environments seems to stem from what everyone has been through over the last couple of years. Many of us spent a lot of time cooped up inside. As a result, there is a much greater emphasis on connecting with nature and the natural world once more.
Many current interior designers are leaning on the principles of biophilic designs. Heavy use of natural lighting and ventilation and furniture built from natural materials are two of the most common ideas.
Classy Outdoor Furniture
Leading on from the previous trend, homeowners with access to outdoor spaces are making the most of them. These areas provide the ideal environment for additional comfort and entertainment while having the added benefit of being out under the sun and in the fresh air.
Neat and tidy outdoor lighting and outdoor kitchen spaces are also becoming more popular. To help with all your outdoor culinary needs, our Mamagreen extendable outdoor dining table might be just what you need.
The world of interior design trends is forever changing. It can sometimes feel as though you can never be sure what is hip and what is already on its way out.
The most important thing, however, is finding a style that suits you.At Viesso, our mission is to provide our customers with sustainable, eco-friendly furniture that lasts. We only work with trusted partners who share these same principles, so whichever piece you set your heart on, you can be sure that it has been carefully curated to fit our values.
