Luxury is in both the detail and the exquisite finish of timeless furniture. While we’re all for timeless, classic design, it’s fun to spot new furniture trends and refresh your space with the very latest in interior design. From small accent chairs nestled into cosy bedroom nooks to oversized sofas that make a grand statement, new furniture can instantly re-energize your home. While 2022 was all about soothing colour palettes, 2023 is bringing bright, statement-making individualism, nature-inspired designs and a sustainable approach.
Whether you’re looking for a new sofa, or side table or are simply intrigued by the 2023 furniture trends forecasted by designers and interior experts alike, choosing the right pieces of furniture for your home will go a long way in creating the luxury home aesthetic you desire. If you’ve been searching for the right opportunity to add more style, vigour and comfort to your space, this is for you. Here’s manifesting a new wave of furniture aesthetics that will uplift the mood and brighten the interiors of your home.
We’ve collectively spent the last few years focusing on neutral colour palettes and minimalist interiors. But things take a stark turn this year. Some of the top interior trends for 2023 play on colour and prints, making kitsch furniture a staple trend for 2023. Let’s cut to the chase and recognize that nothing is more emblematic of a zest for life than a vibrant colour palette. Keeping this in mind, experts have pointed out that white and neutral interiors are falling out of favour for more cheerful hues. New patterns, textiles and colours are set to take the forefront in 2023 furniture trends. Be it the form of accents like colourful lounging chairs, or furniture in colourful hues, the presence of colour is speaking volumes for the season.
To create a visual interest complementary accent chairs and coloured sofas are the latest trends in furniture. For instance, you can choose large sofa pieces that are made of bold colours. Some designers also like the overlapping of white, grey, and soft blue with deep rust. The aesthetic champions more is more and a kitschy vibe.
In contrast to sleek, modern glass, eye-catching textural fabrics and prints are also making a splash in 2023. These textiles offer visual interest while adding warmth, from lush velvet chairs to chunky yarns, tufting, and fringes. From bright colour palettes and striking, ‘space-age’ furniture, to rustic rattan and floral upholstery, this influence will see many of us taking bigger and bolder risks with the furniture in our homes in 2023.
Rosabagh’s Duke in Love, renaissance-inspired bedding designs has recreated nineteenth-century magic with a maximalist design. In sync with the kitsch aesthetic, the design embodies a rich palette of beige, pink, grey and blues to earthy hues and vibrant jewel tones, with touches of gold, that Victorian romance. “In view of Victorian trends finding their way back into modern interiors, the richness of jacquard with silky finishes, handcrafted with immaculate embroideries, applique work, with gold touches, each piece recreates the refined elegance of those majestic years,” said Abhishek Kathuria, Founder and Creative Director Rosabagh. But if you wish to lean towards a modern, contemporary flair Altus Luxury and Sunday Designs offers tastefully curated pieces that come together in sync for a kitsch aesthetic. While the former uses accents like cushions and upholstery to punctuate the furniture, Sunday Design picks out an eclectic print.
When talking about furniture in 2023, it wouldn’t be wrong to say curved pieces are dominating. This is a nod to both the re-emergence of the ’60s and ’70s influence and an uptick in the organic shapes making their way into our homes. The home is associated with a warm inviting space for loved ones, and the use of regimented straight lines and geometric styles is beginning to look stark and cold. Curved furniture on the flipside offers a softer appearance.
Steering away from the Art Deco aesthetic that formerly shaped the way for all furniture designs. The retro style of the 70s has been huge across interiors and is set to continue into 2023. Full-on voluptuous or gently rounded, curves will lift the layout of your room, adding a bold design focus or a subtle touch of shaping to your décor.
The simplest way to incorporate this trend into your space is with a coffee or accent table. If you are feeling more adventurous, take inspiration from Agnom Designs’ living room design. Pair a round coffee table with semicircular sofas. Another option is a curved accent chair for cosy corners like the pink chair by Sunday Design. To keep the trend more subtle, the Beyond Dreams sofa with circular wooden panelling will exude elegance, and for a bold statement, look no further than Idesign by Pooja Gupta’s bright red console.
Modern designs come and go, but heirlooms and thrift finds dictate their charm over generations. The burgeoning interest in vintage and reused furniture is a hopeful shift when it comes to many of us wanting to approach life more sustainably. Hence the resurgence of vintage, pre-loved furniture is unsurprising. A new emerging furniture trend is a penchant for exemplary craftsmanship which is driven by a desire for individual expression. While some like coordinated spaces and matching furniture sets, a large population is inching towards mix-and-matched furniture sets featuring unique pieces. Hence, creating an individual design language.
Working in unison with other furniture trends such as the use of sustainable materials, 2023 will see many of us carefully considering every piece of furniture in our home, establishing a more collected and individual look. This furniture trend is also being called ’eclecticism and individualism’, a trend where consumers are shifting to a more eclectic collector’s approach to designing their spaces. This will result in not only an elegant blend of the old with the new but also a unique union of styles and themes.
Rosabagh’s opulent vintage-inspired bed will work its charm for a royal look, The Concrete Story’s delicate white carved sofa adds modern touches to an otherwise vintage design. But if you are someone who likes to mix and match to create a unique individual aesthetic, Temple Town’s artistically orchestrated vintage pieces will draw you in.
This one is a dominant aesthetic in today’s world. The mid-century modern design is gaining popularity, as retro-inspired pieces make a serious comeback. Mid-century designs can be best described as simple, functional wooden pieces made from teak featuring curved designs. “The mid-century modern style, popularized during the mid-20th century, still holds sway in contemporary interior design. Characterized by clean lines, organic shapes, and minimalist forms, this style effortlessly blends functionality with elegance. The mid-century modern furniture, such as the iconic Eames chairs or a sleek teak sideboard, can be incorporated into modern spaces, adding a touch of retro chic and enduring appeal,” said Janavi Javeri- Interior Stylist and founder of Walls and Things. The Concrete Story’s vintage-inspired bed is enough to take you back in time. With wood-carved pillars and a curved headrest, the design is functional yet eye-catching. From metalwork, darker woods, jewel tones, stone fixtures, immersive tapestries, ornate detailing, and some serious shadow play, there is variety available in the market.
The growing focus on conscious living has vastly impacted the décor space as well. An increased emphasis on design products made from wood, wool, stone and ceramics is not merely a revival of one’s interest in craft, rather it also has a mental and emotional impact. Natural materials like wood, and stone, add a grounding, natural and human dimension to our environment, helping us feel calmer and happier.
Additionally, consumers and designers are also making more mindful choices for their interiors. This includes continued efforts to make environmentally conscious decisions in the home. The importance of sustainability will see many consumers move away from fast furniture and invest in designs that can truly stand the test of time, from the use of wood to furniture crafted from recyclable materials.
Orange Tree a brand known for its focus on sustainability, brings a trendy wooden table with curved edges to the limelight; while Beyond Dreams proves that jute isn’t merely limited to cabinet doors and outdoor furniture. Ellementry’s wooden trolley and cabinet is a prototype when it comes to sustainable furniture.
In 2023, nature-inspired spaces are here to stay. Homeowners are looking to create a sense of escapism through landscape-inspired forms in woven textiles and art. Also known as biophilic designs. As we continue to see the positive effects of being closer to nature, the biophilic design trend helps us bring some of the natural world into the comfort of our homes. This is synonymous with the use of natural materials such as bamboo, cork, sisal, wood cane, and wicker, which will be used in furniture design a lot more.
Infusing a fresh perspective to biophilic design are Beyond Dream’s artistic wooden chairs. The craftsmanship is exceptional showcasing the wood’s natural properties. Staying in a nature-inspired curved inorganic shape is a visual delight. On the other hand, Indesign by Pooja Gupta cleverly used stone tables to add to the space a natural touch.
Whether you’re looking to give your home a fresh update or simply experiment, these design ideas will be a refreshing change.
