As 2023 approaches, the FURNISHD. team of interior stylists are excited to share our predictions for the year’s hottest interior design trends.
One trend we expect to see a major resurgence of is bold, vibrant reds and oranges. While bright tones are not a new trend in the design world, we typically see them lean towards cooler hues such as blues, greens, and purples.
In 2023, we anticipate seeing more warm tones like red, orange, and yellow. These colours can be paired with neutral accents for a more subdued look or set against contrasting colours to add some flair to a space.
The new "neutral", jewel tones and earthy hues
We also anticipate a shift in what is considered a “neutral” tone. Pale colours like baby blue, pale yellow, and blush-beige will be framed as neutral shades in the coming year, set against bolder, darker tones. Of course, traditional neutral tones like brown ochre and warm whites will still be popular, but those looking for a more modern take on neutral can opt for these unique shades.
In addition to these trends, we predict a return of standout jewel tones like aubergine and burnt orange, as well as earthy, saturated hues like amber and warm yellow. These shades create a dramatic yet cozy effect and can be paired with a variety of design styles for a stunning impact.
What will be happening in the world of furnishing and furniture in 2023?
Other than these colour trends we have highlighted, we also predict some exciting developments in the world of furnishings and furniture in 2023.
One trend we expect to see is an emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendliness. This can be seen in the rise of furniture made from recycled materials, as well as pieces that are designed to have a minimal environmental impact.
Another trend we predict is the continued popularity of multifunctional furniture. With more and more people working from home, the demand for pieces that can serve multiple purposes, such as a desk that can be easily converted into a dining table, is expected to increase.
In terms of styles, we anticipate a blend of traditional and modern pieces. Classic, timeless designs will still be popular, but with a twist of contemporary elements, such as mixed materials or unexpected colour combinations.
Vintage furniture has always been popular, but in 2023 this will make a major comeback. This can include anything from antique pieces with a rich history to more recent vintage finds from the mid-century modern era.
The popularity of vintage furniture is expected to be driven by a desire for unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that can’t be found at a big box store. These pieces can add character and personality to a space and can often be found at a lower price point than new, designer furniture.

Overall, the furniture and furnishings trends of 2023 are expected to be diverse, with something to suit a wide range of design tastes. From eco-friendly materials and multifunctional pieces to a blend of traditional and modern styles and the resurgence of vintage furniture, there’s sure to be something for everyone. Keep an eye out for these exciting developments in the coming year!
