These trends are made for loving! That’s right, we’re rounding up the best of the best decor trends that we think will be big in 2023 and beyond! Some of the popular interior design trends that are catching our eyes thus far? Bold design style mixes, biophilic design, and dramatic statements are all on the list! Read on to discover 10 new decorating trends and design styles to try this year.
1. Traditional Rugs
Traditional and vintage-style rugs are what’s new underfoot. Classic patterns in saturated colors anchor a space and offer a timeless design that defies the whims of the most fleeting trends.
We love the contrast of pairing vintage style rugs with bright white walls and contemporary or modern furniture. Keeping with other 2023 decor trends, mismatched and layered rugs are a big way to add personal style into any room. Looking for more area rug inspiration? Read up on 4 more 2023 rug trends.
2. Eclectic Interiors
Mastering the mix is what 2023 design is all about. In the spotlight are rooms that pull inspiration from a variety of decades and design styles. We’re seeing unexpected combinations of different furniture styles, colors, textures, and patterns that give any space a unique, original look. Maximalist design—with its layers of vivid colors, patterns, and textures—is definitely part of this trend.
3. Biophilic Design
More than just an interior design trend, biophilic design is a philosophy that’s been growing (pun intended) in popularity for several years and shows no signs of stopping.
Biophilic design dictates that adding elements of nature into built environments (AKA your living room, your office, or your doctor’s waiting room) has a calming, soothing effect on your mental health.
Biophilic design asks for more plants, of course, but also botanical images, natural materials, and organic shapes. If you consider yourself a plant parent, you get it. Nature makes us feel better.
4. Mix Traditional & Modern Furniture
Rooms that intermingle traditional and modern furniture are a major 2023 decor trend. Mixing antiques into modern spaces is about contrast, juxtaposition, and making a designer statement.
Not sure how to get the look? Pair your Chesterfield sofa alongside contemporary accent chairs and a minimalist coffee table, like the living room above. Mid-century furniture (oh how we love it so!) has dominated the trend spotlight for many years, but it’s nice to see other design styles edging their way into the limelight!
5. Curved Furniture
Caution: curves ahead! Straight lines and sharp angles are making way for curves, spheres, orbs, and arcs—shapes that are trending in this season’s furniture collections.
Sculptural forms in foundational furniture will be a prominent decorating trend in 2023. Think curvaceous sofas, cloud-like chairs, and kidney bean-shaped coffee tables. This trend dabbles in biophilic design (see trend #3 above!), as curved and undulating forms are prominent in nature.
Adding these pieces into your home will help to break up all the sharp lines and soften any machine-made pieces. Learn more about the curved furniture trend, including its 1970s origins and 10 ways to get the look.
6. Statement Accent Walls
Bold, joyful statements are decidedly in for 2023. Accent walls are a long-held interior decor staple, and this year they get a trendy update with bold wallpaper patterns and punchy colors.
The idea is to infuse energy and exuberance into a space with big statements. The abundance of patterns and the new—and easy—methods of creating an accent wall make this a trend everyone can dabble in. Need some inspiration on how to bring this new (again) interior design trend home? We’re dishing out plenty of 2023 accent wall ideas!
7. Light Toned Wood Furniture
Wood tones cycle in and out of trend every few years. While dark brown and acorn woods (the warm, nutty brown you see in mid-century furniture) have been popular for a while, lighter woods are moving into the trend spotlight.
Light woods bring a sense of airiness to rooms and they are ideal for furniture in smaller spaces (this one’s for you, city dwellers). On a practical note, lighter woods don’t show scratches or scuffs as easily as darker hues do, so are a good choice for high-traffic spaces.

8. Cozy Fabrics – Bouclé, Chenille, and Shearling
2023 trends have a soft spot for sumptuous fabrics. Furniture upholstered in plush, luxurious fabrics are prominent in many big furniture collections.
Bouclé (pronounced boo-clay) is a nubby, looped material usually made of wool and is shaping up to be this year’s “It” fabric, with chenille and shearling not far behind. As many of these upholstery materials are natural, they also check the box for the biophilic design trend.

9. Coastal Grandmother Interiors & Patios
An internet darling, the coastal grandmother decor trend was a 2022 favorite that is back for more in 2023.
To get a picture of this elegantly casual coastal aesthetic, think of the upscale yet relaxed home settings seen in Nancy Meyers’ films. These seaside spaces were always as equipped for effortless entertaining as they were for luxurious solitude.
In 2023 we’ll see this trend moving outdoors as well, with clean and timeless patio furniture designs.
10. Organic Minimalism
Soothing, spacious, and understated all describe the organic minimalist interior 2023 design trend. It’s a twist on the minimalist aesthetic that gets rebranded every few years. This latest iteration infuses earthy and artisanal ideas for a look that feels grounded and organic. It’s filled with textures and organic imperfections that come from natural materials. The color palette is neutral but warmed by wood accents and enlivened by plants.
This is a great look if you like a less-is-more style but still want to have some soul and nature integrated into your space.
No matter which of the 2023 trends you choose—or even if you mix them all together, which is also on trend—we have the furniture, decor, rugs, and accent pieces you need to create spaces you love.
