Furniture trends designers expect to see in 2022
Last year ended with anticipation regarding design and décor trends. Creators and designers gave their feedback and predictions for 2022 furniture and design trends. Keep reading for their guesses as to what materials and styles we ought to see.
A trend we’re seeing in furniture design is the implementation of curvaceous lines in case goods and, upholstered furniture. Nearly every manufacturer, from more budget friendly vendors to ultra-high end. Incorporated arcs, curves, and soft lines are the way to go. Sofas, fireplace fronts, chairs, vanities, and cabinetry are some of the ribbed and fluted details on sofas we are starting to see. This pattern can be traced back to centuries past when it was originally used to adorn Roman’s columns.
Tweeds, crushed velvets, boucle’s have been presented by nearly all of the vendors which indicates that we’ll be seeing more texture in furniture pieces. Regarding said, comfort will be popular in the year 2022. The need for comfort is inevitable with everyone spending more time at home, but fear not, you don’t have to sacrifice style. The texture is great, and it adds to coziness and warmth. Use of these materials will keep the interiors fresh and unexpected as we look for less expected ways to use them.
Matte finishes will be used in kitchens and baths. The most popular designs for fixtures will be less shine and more matte finishes in pewter, nickel, and stainless. The preferred finishes for touchless or motion control faucets will be stainless, matte or brushed black.
With global supply chain delays, vintage furniture will continue to be incorporated into design. Clients are seeking to purchase pieces of quality that can evolve with their homes and with them rather than using fast furniture. Shopping vintage is not only for the elderly any longer. Younger clients want an alternative to catalog-purchased or mass-produced items and prefer to have pieces that reflect their character and grow with them. Mixing and matching current furniture pieces with antiques or family heirlooms helps the room feel timeless so that designs don’t date to quickly.
Personality and Sentimentality
Incorporated personality into spaces will be something that will be seen much more in the months to come. Sentimentality will also be more apparent. Making your home look like a staged room or a catalog is a trend that is gone; instead, homes will be more reflective of where people feel themselves, authentic and comforted, a more reflective and unique space.
Incorporating more formal and luxury items into your home will get more and more popular this year. Investing in higher quality pieces that are well made, long-lasting, and durable instead of fast furniture that is trendy at the moment but won’t last very long is why people are starting to value the idea.
Decorative details and escapist artwork
A really strong trend for 2022 is whole home health, so we’ll see designs with antimicrobial properties – like copper. Keep an eye on copper and bronze lightning, statement hardware, on cabinetry, on doors, and furniture accents.
Minimalistic furnishings with a geometric twist
A bit of drama has been added to the home space with reveal and conceal adding, semi-transparent materials, glass, room dividers, and even furnishings. Now you can get an easier glimpse of what’s inside.
Cane patterns have evolved into more geometric repeat and grid styles. For those drawn to a minimalist aesthetic this mathematical perfection and open patterns work well because they create a sense of airy lightness to a space without it feeling dated or heavy.
