Up Next: 21 Design Trends for 2024

January 16, 2024

Our trend forecast for the year ahead: sumptuous curtains, hand-stitched details, unfussy tablescapes, and an overwhelming obsession with stainless steel. Have a look:

1. Stainless Steel Kitchens

Above: Meet the kitchen of the not-so-distant future: stainless steel all the way—particularly sleek standalone versions, like this one, Abimis’s Ego line in a home in Varese, Italy. (Want more evidence? Here are 11 more stylish stainless steel cookspaces.)

2. Tipsy Wine Glasses

Above: If 2023 was the Year of the Wonky Whisky Glass, this year wine glasses get the whacky treatment. We’ve spotted off-kilter glasses via glass blower Kohei Komaki (above) and London-based artist Miranda Keyes, and here, originally commissioned by the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

3. Built-In Sofas

4. Sleek Metal Shelves

Above: Suddenly, shiny, super-thin shelves are everywhere we look. We first spotted them inside New York’s coolest cafe: Dae in Brooklyn, then in the form of Frama’s new Rivet collection in aluminum, and here, via Self Design in Denmark. Keep an eye out for many more museum-style metal display shelves in 2024.

5. Flos Pendant Lights

6. Hand-Stitched Details

embroidered details are everywhere—the more handmade and imperfect, the  17
Above: Embroidered details are everywhere—the more handmade and imperfect, the better. Case in point: red-threaded napkins both sincere and witty via Ouevres Sensibles (shown), hand-stitched baskets via Rose Kitchen in Paris, delicately embroidered lampshades, and more.

7. The Imperfectly Perfect Fancy Table

Above: The trend in tablescapes: using the good silverware, but not being fussy about it. Use your best tablecloth but forgo the iron. Add sumptuous platters of food but let them be messy. Here, at a dinner party with dress designers Kamperett, @heleneagency and @anaise_ used candle holders, silverware, and linens from their grandmothers.

8. Folding Screens as Headboards

9. Vintage Silvery Serveware

Above: You know the old saying: Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold. Not this year. The heyday of warmer metals is past (so long, all-brass-everything), and silvery pieces, both new and vintage, are making a return to the table. Shown here are Hay’s Italian Ice Dessert Bowls, available from Finnish Design Shop—or sleuth for old-school silverplate via thrift stores and online.

10. Corduroy Seating

Above: Not just for pants: The nostalgic texture is making a comeback as upholstery this year, and it only gets better with age. Shown: Holland & Sherry Olive Corduroy fabric on a pair of chairs from Nickey Kehoe.

Above: The simple bedspread has been making a comeback of late; this year, look for coverlets with visible seams, like this one in a Melbourne project by designer-on-the-rise Brahman Perera (and one to buy from Once Milano).

Above: The most unexpected trend of fall 2023 shows no sign of letting up as fish make appearances in art, on ceramics, and all over the house. Shown: a Wooden Fish Bowl from Good Friend. (See more in Feast of the (Many) Fishes: 17 Times Fish Made an Appearance Beyond the Plate.)

Photograph by Danielle St. Laurent from Studio Visit: California Style in an East Coast Enclave. (And our color prediction for 2024? Bright, citrus-y chartreuse—also seen on cabinets, and at Astarita Pizzeria.)

Above: Noren, Japanese room dividers with a slit down the center (and sometimes more than one), are appearing in doorways lately. This one, at Ozu Restaurant and Market in Santa Fe, serves as a wall hanging.

Above: Leafy ceramics—serving pieces in the form of cabbage, radicchio, artichokes, and the like—are having a resurgence. Find them in particular from Portuguese maker Bordallo Pinheiro (their Ceramic Cabbage Bowl, shown, is now being carried by the likes of Anthropologie, which also has its own spin-off tableware) as well as inspired collections from Rockett St George, Porta, and Artilleriet.

Above: This will be the year that tapestries make a comeback—both ornate draperies, like this one (above) spotted via Nordic Knots, and this one via French vintage specialists Nomibis, as well as good old-fashioned quilts hung on the wall.
