Items or material that have been developed with sustainability in mind are the new, everyday luxury. This primarily means recycling and creating new from things that already exist. Glass is sorted and melted to become new vases of varying colours. Old oil drums are cleaned of their markings and transformed into modern, new planting containers. Leftover fabrics from previous product ranges are collected and sewn into new cushion covers with a mix of patterns that are part of the design.
A CREATIVE TWIST
It’s the playful and the unique that will get more attention in furnishing in 2023. Finding that one feature that can lift the entire room needs good instincts and personality. Inspiration comes from all four corners of the world and creativity gets to flourish. Perhaps an object that was once used in one way can become something completely new in your home. More accent colours are also appearing as part of this trend.
Ceramics of various shapes and colours are one of the hottest furnishing items this year. Earthenware or stoneware, brand new or vintage, it makes no difference. Vases, pots, urns and other utensils are organic objects whose softness catch the eye. Equally beautiful as stand-alone pieces or grouped together. With terracotta tones you’ll also get one of the trendiest colours for 2023, namely the shade of burnt red.
MORE NATURAL MATERIALS
One of the clearest trends is that we're seeing more and more natural material in 2023, which is also a simple way to create a more sustainable décor. Furniture and furnishing items made of beautifully crafted wood give the home a solid feel. Other popular natural materials are rattan, bamboo, linen and jute, which all highlight the workmanship and knowledge that goes into creating the products.
THE COLOUR PALETTE OF 2023
Light neutral nuances will continue to form the base while even more emphasis will be given to vibrant colours in the furnishing details. In 2023 we’ll see everything from a soft, harmonious and natural colour palette with muted pastels to brighter, more playful touches. Warm, earthy tones from sand to burnt red and amber are becoming more popular. And among the brighter accent colours, the blues are rising up as a favourite.
