Not to mention that we recorded an overall increase of 43.3% in clicks for the home & living category in 2022. These data allowed us to clearly see the 14 most sought-after decoration trends 2022 of the moment. Here they are!
Needless to say, it’s hard to do without flowers at home. These small notes of color, also thanks to the interest in DIY gardening, with the quarantine have become a must among the furniture trends. Tropical flowers or wildflowers? There are floral decorations for everyone. Don’t have a green thumb? Opt for a bed set, decorative pillow, or themed paintings.
With a 248% increase in our home & living section, we can say that velvet is officially back in fashion among furniture trends. The trend within the trend? The velvet sofa and armchairs, of course. What we like about this material is the immediate luxurious touch it gives to various environments.
If for many years, among the furnishing trends, cold materials and colors have depopulated, today natural raw materials are returning to our interiors. Untreated rattan and wood are fashionable again: to give an exotic-bohemian air to the living room or bedroom!
If in recent years the furniture trends have turned to pastel shades, this decade will be much hotter. The predominant colors of the home decorations of the moment: yellow, mustard, orange, terracotta and burgundy. We find these shades in the kitchen, living room and bedroom.
The urban loft in New York… stays where it is. For 2022, let’s go back to the basics of home decor, thanks to an English cottage atmosphere, much less urban. All the rage on social networks, such as Instagram or Pinterest, features wildflowers, porcelain, raw materials, as well as the smell of freshly baked apple pie… in short, vintage furniture is on the crest of the wave!
Scandinavian style, goodbye. Oriental trends are getting wider and wider in furnishing! On Stylight there was an increase of 2553% compared to 2021: the Moroccan style decoration is definitely the hype of the year. Moorish wardrobes, Persian rugs will soon be in all homes. Opulence, colors, comfort, warmth… interpret the trend with your personal style.
Cacti, succulents, dried flowers, small bonsai… let’s bring the outside inside! Millennials love plants and show it by carpeting their homes with them, which almost become small greenhouses. Make sure you are aiming for plants that are easy to maintain.
The time when all the floors, walls, etc. had a single finish is history, what is being done now is mixing. Cement floors are combined with patterns of hydraulic tiles or ceramic imitation parquet. The walls become fun with accent graphics that break the homogeneity of the smooth surfaces. Color does not come only from the hand of textiles and accessories, but the furniture is dressed in intense colors that add personality to the room. Neutral shades won’t go out of style, but it’s good to learn to take a chance.
Large-format wall tiles are a must for 2022. With the new technologies and innovations of recent years, it has been possible to transfer the beauty of natural stone to large and increasingly light formats that facilitate installation on walls and floors, creating elegant and tasteful spaces.
If you are a stoneware lover, you will love the new technical stones that imitate natural materials and manage to create unique and unrepeatable combinations for each space. We will see a lot of marble and similar finishes in wall panels, dining tables, and details in bathrooms and other spaces in the house.
Frosted or matte glass will have a strong presence in lighting fixtures. Being able to be space dividers such as sliding doors or for the bathroom. A trend that until recently was considered obsolete and in bad taste is transformed to reinvent itself and be a key element for decorative, lighting and door solutions.
Its versatility means that they can be adapted to any style and space, being a point of interest that can be customized and even reversed according to the color you want, you will surely see it a lot in shower doors, bathrooms, striking lamps and space dividers.
On the subject of lighting, the innovation and the new proposals are magnificent. From geometric lamps that lean towards pure and simple lines to compositions of several pieces that create unique sceneries in each space.
We will also see many flexible and tubular lamps. They can be adapted to more organic designs, being a perfect contrast to geometric lamps that seek to create figures that cover the horizontal and vertical spectrum to generate a unique and impeccable lighting. The objective is to make an impact and give prominence to the lighting elements.
Good design makes life easier and more comfortable for us. So the year 2022 the trend that enters with more force are modular and multifunctional furniture. The popularity of these pieces of furniture lies in their versatility, being able to have various placement formats.
Adapting to the changing needs of users has led designers to create unique pieces that respond to different uses and spaces, being able to organize the furniture according to the use of each area of ??the house.
Chrome details, glossy finishes, holographic and neon elements. The 80s are back to stay. Small details that transport us to that golden age of design that are presented both in pieces of furniture and in lamps and coatings, reinterpreting this style by merging it with contemporary lines of today.
The organic shapes and the presence of gold or copper finishes stand out on the legs and in the details of chairs and sofas. Mixing the opulence of the time with functional and contemporary silhouettes that we can see very often in pieces of furniture and lamps from the most recognized design houses in the industry.
Gone are the Scandinavian designs full of white and neutral tones. For 2022, bold designs and compositions are expected that use deep, dark tones for both furniture and walls and coverings.
