9 interior design trends you’ll see everywhere in 2022, according to Chairish


The pursuit of comfort is the name of the game next year, depending on the market. it means textile all over– think canopy beds, David Hicks, fabric-covered benches and headboards, and upholstery as far as the eye can see. Details will feature prominently on almost any surface, as evidenced by the impressive Milanese dish by Martina Mondadori and Ashley Hicks.

“In 2022 we will see an even stronger combination of maximalism and minimalism, with a strong focus on materials, texture and shape,” said Fahden. An embodiment of this trend? marble. After making runway appearances in recent seasons – seeing Naomi Campbell strutting the Fendi runway in a swirling silver cape and dress last January – the trend is now emerging in the home through wallpapers, fabrics, glassware and painted furniture.

Another comeback finish that the Chairish team predict is the return of speckled and spectacular faux tortoiseshell finishes. The trend is exemplified by such items as hand painted Hollywood Regency style coffee tables, luxurious lucite octagonal tops, and more.

Designers who were previously wary of intricately patterned wallpapers and upholstery may soon appear, thanks to a rising tide of flowery patterns. Whether applied to wall hangings, wallpaper, or even cushions, botanical imagery is ready to invade interiors.

A silver lining of more time spent at home has been a revival of tabletop games, as more people seek quality time away from screens and digital devices. The days of ragged vinyl backgammon boards are long gone. Now players have an assortment of well-designed, ready-to-display diversions to choose from (which are also fully playable). Some even build rooms dedicated to their games. Prepare to invest more in this category in the coming year.

While super-soft padding promises to be big in 2022, sleek, modern finishes will always hold their place. Example: metal lampshades, which can add a touch of polish to minimalist interiors and loaded patterns.
