Interior design trends are constantly evolving, and 2023 is no exception. Whether you're decorating your new home or just looking to add a few new pieces to your freshen up your decor, incorporating the latest interior design trends can help create a stylish and modern space. We are seeing a shift in the world of interior design towards bolder, more eclectic styles. From the resurgence of vintage and retro furniture to the incorporation of natural materials, there are many exciting trends to explore. In this article, we'll take a closer look at the top interior design trends for 2023 and how you can incorporate them into your furniture choices.

1. Maximalism

After years of minimalism and simplification, maximalism is making a comeback in 2023, with rich jewel tones and intricate patterns taking center stage. This trend is all about embracing bold patterns, bright colors, and lots of textures. To incorporate this trend into your furniture choices, look for pieces that make a statement. Consider a bold-coloured sofa, a patterned coffee table or loud drinks cabinet . If you're not ready to replace large furnitures around your home, you can also mix and match different textures and patterns in easily replaceable things like rugs and cushions to create a layered and eclectic look.

2. Vintage and Antique

The resurgence of vintage, antique and retro furniture is one of the most notable trends for 2022 and it is not showing signs of slowing down in 2023. Pieces from the mid-century era, including Danish and Scandinavian styles, are becoming increasingly popular. Vintage and antique pieces are a great way to add charm, unique character and a touch of nostalgia to your home decor. This trend is all about finding unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that tell a story. Look for vintage or antique furniture at flea markets, antique stores, or online marketplaces. You can also opt for new furniture with a vintage-inspired design or finishes like our bleached furniture collection because the process of finding and restoring some antique or vintage items can be quite an arduous effort.

3. Biophilic Design

This has been an ongoing trend in the recent years, and probably one to stay. Biophilia means loving live and living things, and biophilic design, naturally, is all about bringing the outdoors inside. This trend incorporates natural materials, plants, and other organic elements into your home decor as these materials provide a sense of warmth and texture to any space. To incorporate this trend into your furniture choices, opt for pieces made of solid wood or with natural finishes. Stone and marble accents or bone inlay features can also be incorporated into furniture pieces, such as table tops or accents on chair legs. If you have a large wall space with access to natural light, a living wall could also be one great way to bring a touch of nature into your home.

4. Textured Walls

Speaking of walls, textured walls are a great way to add depth and create visual interest to your home decor. It enhances lighting, adds warmth and also accentuates decor all at the same time. Incorporating textured walls into your home decor can be done in a variety of ways, from subtle accents to full wall treatments. While using wallpaper with a textured design is one easy way to add depth, we love a more rustic approach of Venetian plastering or simply painting your walls with an age-old method of wall painting that dates back to Ancient Rome - limewash paint. Limewash walls, which were traditionally applied to the outside of buildings, are now becoming more prevalent as an interior design choice. Limewash painting could be a great DIY home improvement weekend activity especially in the summer. If you're looking for more to do to your wall, you can also use different materials such as wood slats or exposed brick and stone to create a beautiful accent wall.

5. Statement Lighting

Lighting is an important element in interior design, and in 2023, statement lighting is taking center stage. Statement lighting is an effective way to enhance the ambiance of a living space. Not only does it provide functional lighting, but it also adds a decorative element to the room. By choosing a unique and eye-catching fixture, you can instantly elevate the look of the entire space. Statement lighting can also be used to create focal points within a room, drawing the eye to specific areas and creating a sense of depth and interest. In addition, the right lighting can create different moods within a space, from bright and energetic to warm and cosy. By strategically placing statement lighting throughout a living space, you can create a cohesive and stylish atmosphere that truly reflects your personal style.

6. Curved Shapes

Curved shapes are a trend that we're seeing in all aspects of design, with soft curves replacing hard angles and breaking up the monotony of straight lines. This trend creates a sense of movement and flow in a room. To incorporate this trend into your furniture choices, look for pieces such as a curved headboards or a rounded armchair to add a soft and organic touch to your space. You can also incorporate curved shapes into your decor with accessories such as mirrors or wall art. You can also add a decorative vase or a set of bowls with curved edges to your coffee table or shelves. These small details can make a big impact in creating a harmonious and welcoming atmosphere in your living space.

7. Multifunctional Furniture

With more people working remotely than ever before, it's important to have a dedicated workspace that doesn't take up too much room. Whether you're living in a small apartment, looking to freshen up your decor, or work from home, consider incorporating furniture pieces that serve more than one purpose into your space for a practical and stylish solution. Some examples are a desk that can be repurposed into a console table or a dressing table or an occasional table, or find a stool that can serve an extra seat or a bedside table, a coffee table with built-in storage, or a dining table that can be expanded to seat more people. By repurposing furniture items into multifunctional pieces, you can give new life to old furniture and reduce waste on top of freshening up your decor

Incorporating these top interior design trends into your furniture choices is a great way to refresh and update your home this year. Whether you opt for vintage pieces, a curvaceous vase or a lime-washed wall, there is a trend to suit every style and budget. The key is to mix and match trends to create a unique and personalised look that reflects your individual taste and personality.
