6 Design, Remodel and Build Trends to know for 2022
Wallpaper will keep winning hearts
According to Yelp, searches for wallpaper were up 167% in 2021, and experts are predicting the interest to continue into 2022.
Wallpaper fits neatly into a lot of the pervasive design trends of our times, with biophilia and Maximalism being particularly well-served. Wallpaper designers are leaning into colorful and organic motifs, often featuring plants and animals like these stunning designs from Rifle Paper Co.
Sculptural lighting makes a statement
Statement lighting doesn’t have to be bold and brash to stand out and beautify a space. In 2022, look for the light to shine a little brighter on lamps and fixtures that are themselves works of art. According to a report from Etsy, searches for sculptural lighting increased 27% in 2021 and the trend is expected to continue in the new year.
Floor lamps like this showstopper from the Jamie Young Company or this curvy stunner from ET2 can make a living room feel like a mini modern sculpture garden. Or you can use more organic shapes like this Branch Table Lamp by Chelsea House to turn end tables into gallery-worthy displays. And of course you can't beat the impact of a statement chandelier, such as this modern piece from Troy.
