It’s not all gloom and doom for 2023 — there is some light to help you get through what is anticipated to be a challenging economic time. We combed through the trend diaries and noticed an overarching theme in mind.
This year is all about celebrating your authenticity and focusing on sustainability, paving the way to establish new connections within the spaces in your home and most importantly, with your loved ones.
Whether you are looking to spend this spring decluttering, choosing to refresh your space or renovating and making major changes, why not plan ahead and enhance your interiors with what we have discovered?
Freedom of expression
Functional maximalism is taking centre stage this spring, allowing you to express yourself fully through colour, texture and material, all the while helping with your daily rituals. Multi-sensory touchpoints infused in a space — for example wallpaper, incorporating a bold couch with rich colour schemes, or mixing pieces from the past and present — will be ruling our interiors with a focus on high-low design in the home. It’s a pared-back design, with the classic and the timeless taking a back seat to usher in an era of expressionism and individuality.
It was in 2020 that we began to see a shift in the furniture and decor industry. Manufacturers and designers began to dive deep into recreating furniture collections, blending clean lines, elegant shapes, and materiality, pushing the boundaries of what we have been acustomed to see over the previous years.
In 2023, there has been an upswing, with different eras expressed through modernity. Working with rich velvets, bouclé, hair on hide, mohair and vegan leather, the trends are predicting that this industry is going to continue to shift and elevate in design and functionality, while making these pieces approachable.
We have loved and lived with bleached woods, but we are noticing that designers and manufacturers are veering away from the Scandi influence and beginning to use darker, richer tones. Everything from walnut to black mango wood, wood veneer and rich marble, we are loving all the moody vibes that this trend is giving. All you need is one statement piece that will be the conversation starter at a dinner party or barbecue you will host this spring.
The devil is in the details and yes, our dinnerware, silverware and serving ware will have its moment. Form, uneven organic shapes, rustic textures, and warm woods converted to sculptural serving essentials are all designed with one goal in mind — to intentionally spark some gleam when serving your most coveted foods and recipes. An inexpensive way to refresh your space and decor, this spring’s trends enable you to create a delightful tablescape to reflect the freshness and vibrance of the season and celebrate a new and exciting year ahead.
