Top interior trends of 2023

As the turn of a new year brings a new set of interior trends, I've put together my top picks for the biggest styles for the coming year, to help you create the home you love.

Decadent décor 

Away from the minimalist, clean-look living we have seen in recent years, 2023 brings bold, luscious colours, soaked in personality and character following the pale palettes of 2022. We love @sheffieldsemi1930s look (see above) they have going on with the Flo sofa in the dark Obsidian fabric.

Opulent deep blue hues and dark rich reds inspired by the Pantone colour of the year – Viva Magenta – will dominate decors, bringing back the sleeping succulent shades that have lay dormant, while the previously understated pretty pastels and cool greys had their day.

As the décor does the talking, here’s our pick of products to complement vivid surroundings:

With khaki picked as the one of the perfect pairing colours with Viva Magenta, our Sisi Italia Amalfi 3 seater sofa in Arno Green is an ideal partner to a rich backdrop.

Pale and neutral, the Dahlia 3 seater scatter back sofa in light grey is the right shade of grey to stand out against a Magenta setting.

Sunset shades

With hopes that 2023 will bring the sunshine, sunset shades are set to come bursting into homes, with warm tones of yellow and amber being used to infuse energy and positivity.

From furniture to soft furnishings, sunny statement walls and rugs, and accent accessories, 2023 is set to be bright.

Here are a few ideas to help give your home an extra glow this year:

Back with a vivacious bang, the saturated colours of 2023 are set to reinject life into homes, accompanied by layers of different textures, patterns and exuberant prints.

2023 is all about bringing personality back into homes. In continuing the trend, this year will also see the revival of decorative borders and stencilling. A style that hasn’t been seen much since the 90’s, stencilling offers an easy, budget-friendly way to refresh rooms and adopt an on-trend art-deco design.

No over-decorated room would be complete this year without some whimsical accessories. 2023 expects to see the appearance of expressive pieces of art, antiques and heirlooms on shelves and in display units. Take a look at our choice of stylish solutions to house your ornate ornaments:

Curves in all the right places

Curves and arches will be waving their way into 2023, bringing a sense of old-time design to many rooms and spaces. Curved doorframes, ceilings and even round edged furniture can help create a sense of elegance in any space.

Here are my recommendations to help create a timeless look:

The retro-inspired design and rounded arms of the Fraser Love Chair will add a contemporary twist on the curves trend, or indulge in a touch of glamour with the curvaceous Flo 3 Seater Sofa.

Add opulence with our Hampstead Round Dining Table & 4 Blue Curved Velvet Chairs or make a statement with our Euston 1.2m Glass Round Dining Table & 4 Chairs

Our Mango Lounge living room furniture will add a modern impact – combining elegant curves with warm honey brown tones, bringing a contemporary feel to the curved trend.

Muted moods

On the other end of the spectrum and in complete contrast to the bold, vivid colours we are likely to see this year, neutral shades are sticking around to create a calming and comforting environment.

Alongside earthy tones of terracotta, beige and cream, 2023 is likely to see pieces in the home inspired by nature in the form of natural stone slabs as back splashes, tiles and furniture tops.

Here are my top picks of natural stone-inspired furniture to help keep your surroundings as Zen as possible:


As conversations around sustainability widen, 2023 is set to see sustainability remain at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

As our moral conscious as consumers makes us more aware of our carbon footprint and the consequences of our buying habits, we have seen a gradual decrease in fast fashion, extending to the appetite for more sustainable home wares.

This year, with conversations around sustainability predicted to be wider than ever, we expect to see the reuse, repurpose, recycle and upcycle of goods - with furniture, soft furnishings, lighting and accessories set to be given a new lease of life. 

This newfound mindfulness now means that we want to know where our products come from and the conditions in which they are made. Are they made to last? Are they made from high quality materials? What are workers’ conditions like? Is the packaging recyclable or is it disposed of in a responsible way?

In our efforts to become more environmentally responsible, we offer a range of sustainable product options.

For example, our Botanicals Bloom and Ferndale ranges use recycled fabrics on their cushions and footstools, our Sedna carpets are made from abandoned fishing nets recovered from the oceans, and our SpringBond underlay is made from plastic bottles, also recovered from the oceans. 

In 2022, we were delighted to be awarded the BSI Kitemark – a recognised symbol of quality, safety and trust across the world. When you see the BSI Kitemark on our products, it is a symbol of confidence that the item is of excellent quality, made to be enjoyed for years to come. 

In addition, many of our sofa ranges are handmade in the UK – celebrating the best of British design and craftsmanship, and supporting the manufacture of high-quality furniture.

Statement lighting

Get the ambiance right with clever lighting and statement lamps. Whether you’re trying to create an indulgent atmosphere or a relaxing sanctuary, the right lighting can help set the mood.

Here are our top picks for getting the light right:
