In the home furnishings sector, the key word for 2022 is eco-sustainability. In addition to a careful choice of materials, it will also be essential to make the best possible use of the available spaces, make targeted purchases and convey a sense of nature on the aesthetic side as well. Together with Westwing, let’s find out what will be the most important furniture trends for 2022, on a journey through colors, shapes, materials and styles!
The styles of the furniture
We are sure of one thing: in 2022, we do not have to be afraid to dare! In a mix of colors, patterns, materials and decorative styles, each home becomes even more unique and special. Nature will have a special place that will find the right place in each room: from the textiles of the bedroom, in colors reminiscent of the earth, to the green plants in the living room that are able to instill serenity and peace. But let’s get to the heart of the question: what are the most trendy furniture styles this year?
- Minimalism. If 2020 has taught us anything, it is certainly about removing the superfluous and transforming our homes into small oases of peace. It is therefore not surprising if minimalism in a Zen key stands out among furniture trends in 2022, characterized by light woods, oriental prints, neutral colors and green plants.
- Marine style. Rejected in its most current variant, also known as global coastal, this style instantly brings holiday air to any environment. It is reminiscent of the atmosphere of slow summer days and the simplicity of fishing villages: white reigns undisputed, in different shades, adorned with steering wheel details and decorations in different shades of blue.
- Mix & match. By 2022, the idea of combining seemingly opposite and incompatible styles will be completely cleared. Let’s see the flowering is similar then rustic fashionwhere family furniture is combined with modern furniture, and the vintage glamorwhere period elements are combined with ultra-modern and extravagant materials.
- Boho chic. Now a big trend for several years, the boho style is dressed in new bright and bright colors. On a neutral base, red and yellow textiles, wall prints in pastel colors and creative patterns of ethnic influence appear. The result is a mix of elements typical of the bohemian style.
Interior design enthusiasts will have noticed: In recent years, furniture with rounded, soft and curvy shapes has returned to great fashion. Typical of the slightly retro styles, they find the right place even in modern and contemporary surroundings. In 2022, the rounded design will have a little impact on everything: from sofas to rugs, from coffee tables to wall mirrors.
But it does not stop there! After 2020, many have had to reinvent the spaces at home and create corners dedicated to working from home, the gym and relaxation. Therefore, space-saving furniture flourishes, ready to transform when needed: a coffee table opens and turns into a desk, a sofa becomes a comfortable bed to watch a movie and so on.
Not only the shapes but also the textiles are softened. In 2022, velvet is back in fashion, capable of making any environment elegant: it will find its perfect place in the living room, combined with leather, cotton and silk. Although it may seem like a material with an old-fashioned look, it adapts very well to environments in minimal or Scandinavian style, especially in lighter colors. For an eccentric touch, we recommend decorative pillows in fuchsia velvet, perhaps to lie on a dark blue sofa.
But it’s not just about velvet! As we said at the beginning of our article, sustainability will play a very important role throughout 2022. Most of the materials we will dress our homes with will be eco-compatible, such as wood, glass, jute and rattan. Green light also for recycled raw materials, organic paint, recycled furniture.
The color palette from 2022 will contain shades reminiscent of nature. At the bottom of it all, there are neutral colors that never go out of fashion: ivory, beige, gray … these shades can be combined with each other to create a monochromatic look or combined with different shades that are able to illuminate and highlight them. Particular emphasis is placed on rugs, which with their shades renew the mood of an entire room.
With red, electric blue, fuchsia or yellow details, a super colorful pop environment can be recreated in an instant. Also go for different shades of green, which evoke the tranquility of the landscape meadows or the mystery of forests and forests: in this case, we recommend the combination with different tones of beige and brown. If you prefer a minimal look, it is ideal to insert black details with clean and essential lines. A few examples? Metal shelves, mirrors and small decorations with a modern design.
Always for the sake of sustainability, the trendy decorations for the home in 2022 are dedicated to recycling and handmade. Small items handcrafted by local artisans find space on shelves, consoles and bookshelves; vintage plate sets bring a touch of originality to the kitchen; Modern antiques, such as retro-style telephones, create a unique atmosphere at the entrance or living room. The secret? Do not be afraid to dare, even when you are apparently mixing for different styles!
