From High Point Market To Home: 9 Interior Design Trends For 2023

Jun 21, 2023

High Point Market in North Carolina is more than just an event - it's a global epicenter of interior design. This world-renowned interior design extravaganza is a mecca for over 75,000 design enthusiasts, and we are honored to be among them.

It's here that we immerse ourselves in a sea of trending home decór each Spring and Fall. Our purpose? To uncover, decode, and translate home decór trends into stunning, personalized living spaces for our clients.

Six whirlwind days spent testing furniture, connecting with vendors, and exploring innovative designs translate into an abundance of inspiration for us. Freshly returned from the 2023 High Point Market, our minds are abuzz with new ideas that will soon shape the face of home interiors.

In this article, we share with you a glimpse into the future of home decór and furniture design, as discovered through our journey at High Point Market. 

2023 Interior Design Trends to Bring Home

From brass accents bringing nostalgia and curvy shapes adding softness to animal influences connecting us to the wild, let's explore the upcoming interior design trends that our team sees taking center stage in 2023.

#1 Nature’s Whisper: The Allure of Animal Influences

Animal influences introduce a touch of the wild into our living spaces. This design trend embraces the alluring mystique of nature, with animal prints like zebra, croc and leopard being utilized in rugs, cushions, and upholstery, providing a striking visual impact.

This trend allows us to maintain a connection with the natural world while bringing a whimsical visual interest to our living room, dining room, and other spaces through decorative animal-inspired pieces.

#2 Gleaming Nostalgia: The Elegance of Brass Accents

Brass, the sophisticated material with a deep historical legacy, has been returning to our homes over the past few years, but in 2023 especially. Whether in the form of kitchen fixtures, floor lamps, furniture hardware, or ornate mirrors, brass brings a beautiful warmth and elegance to any space.

It's a versatile metal, blending seamlessly with a variety of color palettes. Brass accents against dark hues create an aura of luxury while pairing it with lighter tones provides a vintage charm.

#3 A Palette of Joy: The Emergence of Bright Colors

Another interior design trend we saw across many of the 2,000+ exhibitions is a shift towards vibrant, uplifting hues. Gone are the days of exclusively neutral palettes and natural elements; bright colors are now seen as an expression of joy, optimism, and individuality.

Imagine a statement wall bathed in electric blue in your bedroom, or a lime green velvet couch giving new life to your living room. Using bright colors is a bold choice, but it's also an exciting journey in customizing your space to your personal tastes.

#4 The Grain of Sophistication: The Appeal of Burled Wood

Burled wood, with its swirling patterns and unique grain, has always held a unique place in interior design. Recently in 2023, we've seen it move beyond antique pieces and into modern design.

As one of the more versatile natural materials, it's being used in coffee tables, cabinets, and even wall panels. The intricate pattern of burled wood adds a distinctive, earthy elegance to interiors, creating a focal point that invites admiration and conversation.

#5 Soft Transitions: The Comfort of Curved Lines

Curved lines, in furniture, decór, and even architectural details, offer a refreshing alternative to the traditional details and rigidity of straight lines.

Whether it's a curved-back sofa, an oval dining table, or an arched doorway, these design elements with beautifully soft and rounded edges inspire a sense of comfort and tranquility. Incorporating curved lines with layered lighting can soften areas like your living room or bedroom, making it feel more organic and welcoming.

#6 A Garden Inside: The Romance of Florals

Florals have the magic of transforming interiors into lush, indoor gardens. Bold floral wallpaper can turn a mundane room into a vibrant haven. Upholstery with floral patterns gives a touch of charm to furniture.

Even accessories, like throw pillows or window treatments with floral prints, add a fresh, lively feel. Florals infuse our homes with a sense of romance, feminine energy, and endless spring -- perfect for creating mindful spaces.

#7 Joyful Seating: The Innovation of Fun Ottomans

Fun ottomans are the embodiment of a saying your interior designer lives by; "Beauty lies in the details." These small pieces of furniture are being reinvented with unique shapes, vibrant colors, and interesting patterns.

A pink, faux fur ottoman can add a dash of glamor to a living room, while a geometrically shaped ottoman with bold prints and jewel tones can serve as an artistic focal point in bedrooms, children’s rooms, or even bathrooms.

#8 Nature’s Breath: The Serenity of Green

Green, a color synonymous with tranquility and rejuvenation, is being embraced like never before in 2023. Whether it’s a mint green accent wall, a sage green sofa, or an emerald green rug, the color green brings a welcome hint of the outdoors inside.

It represents our growing yearning for a closer connection with nature and brings serenity and calm to our interior spaces. Paired with natural stone pieces and sustainable design, green is on its way to being the color of the season.

#9 The Art of Surprise: Mixing Colors and Patterns

Mixing colors and patterns is no longer a design faux pas; it's a celebration of personal creativity and expression.

Contrasting patterns, daring color combinations, and unexpected design choices all contribute to this trend, creating a space that is uniquely yours. The result is an interior that’s dynamic, vibrant, and utterly personal.
