Poppy Slater

“As a textile fanatic and color maven, revamping fabrics is where I feel you get most bang. My son Otis has added mohairs and velvets alongside his elegant linens at @otistextiles. I’ve been working in Scotland on some colorful tartans, crushed velvets and large patterned prints to celebrate 2022, the 25th year of my textile line.” -Kathryn M. Ireland

Dual-Purpose Rooms

“As we get into another year of COVID variants, our living spaces continue to double as our work rooms, which is the new normal. The kitchen continues as the conference room and The Farmhouse Table is the new boardroom table.” -Kathryn M. Ireland

“Rooms will be designed for double duty; i.e. dining rooms walls lined with wine storage or books, guest rooms fitted with desks, bedrooms equipped with exercise equipment. As people spend more time in their homes, they expect the spaces to work harder for them.” -Timothy Corrigan

Vintage and Sustainable Accents

“Whenever I can use vintage, I will. From a design standpoint, vintage is the protagonist of every room—it has the power to influence the storytelling and direction. Their patina brings a touchable texture and warmth to every space, not to mention a sacred sentimentality. But aside from their decorative propensity, these rare antiquities are stylishly sustainable. By repurposing the old, the damaged, the jagged into something new, we’re reducing our footprint while bringing a rich sense of history and spirit into a space.” -Athena Calderone

“We are starting to see lots of new brilliant options for sustainable fabrics and materials. I think this should now be a priority for all designers.” -Marcus Barwell, Managing Director of Soho House Design

Leather Furniture and Upholstery

“1989 is calling and it wants … Sade, Lisa Stansfield-soft Italian leather sofas, Calvin Klein home, Armani Casa, and Terence Conran back!” -Robert McKinley, founder of Studio McKinley

“Leather in rich tones offset cooler metals and have the ability to tell a story over time as they wear through use—we shouldn’t be afraid of age showing its face.” -Erick Garcia

A More Modern Grandmillenial

“Trends for 2022 include the embracing of floral patterns, a sort of 1940s updated chintz vibe, resplendent in the memory of Mario Buatta, but in more contemporary palettes. The ‘grandmillennial’ look that was slowly infiltrating influencers and taste makers in 2021 is now become more widespread, moving tastes back to a “more is more” look. But unlike our grandparents’ interiors, the feel is more curated with floral and damask-printed wallpapers becoming the backdrop for contemporary-shaped soft furnishings given an added touch of glamour with unexpected fringe and piping additions.” -Martyn Lawrence Bullard
