2022 is the year of design, certainly so when it comes to interior furniture design. The way to decorate your space can have a positive, as well as considerable impact on the rest of the year ahead. And, it is never too late to hop on the latest furniture design trends of 2022 before the year is out. It can even bleed into the next year as well if fashion is any indication.

Interior Design Trends - The Curvy Lines

Quite a few creative directors and interior designers in 2022 have pointed out that curvy lines will be in fashion when it comes to furniture design. Such as that of upholstery, and even sideboards. Therefore, you would want to get yourself a sofa with a rounded back as well as sides to follow suit. The idea of this trend is that soft lines are more desired when compared to right-angled ones. Furthermore, you can use a lot of arcs and curves in all your furniture choices since the trend is merely growing in popularity.  

And, this particular trend of curvy lines is not only limited to the silhouette of the pieces but also in the details on the pieces themselves. For example, you can find items that have a more fluted and ribbed design detail on them. Not only that of sofas, but chairs, cabinetry, vanities, and even fireplace fronts. Curvy lines can give an art-deco look and feel to your new or old place. Similar to that of the Roman columns, but a lot more within budget.

Surfaces with Textures

Another furniture design trend in 2022, along with a few others, is to keep your eye out for textured textiles. These can include textures such as crushed velvet, boucle, furry, nubby, and even tweeds for example. The notion is that textures are very much on-trend in 2022 when it comes to furniture that you would not want to miss out on. 

The texture is all about comfort. And, you would want your furniture to not only be stylish, as well as usable but also comfortable. Certainly so with more and more people hopping on to the option of remote work, or at least a hybrid workforce.  

One of the textured elements that can really make your new pieces of furniture pop is boucle wool fabric. It can be used in numerous ways from being on furniture to pillowcases. This is due to the fact that this type of fabric adds coziness as well as warmth to your home.

Matte Finishes in Bathrooms and Kitchens

A finishing is trending, as the name implies, it can really make a room feel… finished. As is the case with bathrooms, as well as kitchens. When it comes to finishing, shiny is out, while matte is in. The finishing can still be nickel, or stainless steel, just without the shine.  

With the increase in touch-less/motion sensored faucets, you can opt to get one for yourself in your kitchen in a matte black or stainless steel one.

Furniture Design Trends - The Vintage

The appeal of vintage furniture is that they are items that can grow with you. Furthermore, due to their age, the chances of finding two items that are exactly the same, aka mass-produced, is rare. This latter point also appeals to many young people, certainly those who are first-time homeowners.  

Vintage items have character, and style to them that’s why they are always in interior design trends. What is more, is that you can mix the old with the new as a way to make your own look. This can give your home a timeless look while also living in the modern world.

Nostalgia and Sentimentality in Interior

One of the major perks of having your own place is that you can make it reflect your personality as much as you like, or as your budget allows. You can add a lot of nostalgia, and personality to your home with the furniture and design you decide to use. People are no longer aiming to recreate “catalog” looking homes. Also, nostalgia is an interior design trend of 2022.

People are taking elements from this and that, as well as adding a lot of themselves into their own private little world. As we have mentioned the idea is to make a home comfortable, and also reflect who you are, or who your family is.

Move In And Pay Later

Furniture That Lasts - Quality is The Must-Have

While the idea of buying furniture that can stand the test of time is not uncommon, it is still a furniture trend that is coming more and more into the foreground. From vintage furniture to modern ones, people are looking for quality items that will last as long as they do.  

That is why a lot of the items you should be looking for are ones that you can stand forever, and that will last as long. These have to be high-quality, well-made, as well as durable. Think of it this way, in the long run, it will be cheaper to buy high-quality stuff now, instead of replacing low-quality items repeatedly. So spend a little more, to make sure that the furniture lasts. While also showing off your personality while being comfortable.

Always Trending in Interior Design - Walls That Behold Art

Something to keep in mind when looking for your new furniture is what will go on the walls that can match it. Or not match depending on your style. Artworks are an in-thing when it comes to home decoration and interior design trends of 2022. These can be painters or even framed posters. Since nostalgia is also an interior design trend you can hang up a framed poster of your favorite movie to remind you of the good old days while looking towards the bright future to come.  

Furthermore, while you are at home, you can make it feel like you are on vacation with the mixture of wonderful artworks, and comfortable items. A home is a place for you to escape, unwind, and relax. So make it feel as such by looking the part of a getaway.

Future Interior Design Trends - Environment Friendly

A trend that is not only in furniture and interior design, but everywhere else is to make everything as environmentally friendly as possible. This does not necessarily mean planting a solar-power panel on your roof, although it can help. However, a budget cab often makes it difficult to do so. But, you can use other methods to give the environment a hand from the comfort of your own home.  

Such as materials that have antimicrobial properties in them. This is bronze or copper. Antimicrobial properties can help fight off viruses, bacteria, protozoans, and even fungi. This can help with your health. Furthermore, you can also opt to use light bulbs that burn just as bright but use a lot less power.   

And, using vintage items of furniture can also be seen as a form of recycling. As well as investing in durable furniture items that will last.

Geometric and Minimalist Trends

An interior design style that is certainly in the forefront when it comes to cabinets, and other types of furnishings are mesh, as well as open grids. It gives the space a minimalist look while also adding a geometric pattern due to the repeating textures and patterns. Plus, it can also add “more air” to the space of the room. And, it also adds to the vintage feel of some of the elements of the room.
