You may have already noticed it yourself, but the big companies that are dedicated to the design and production of paints, furniture and decorations unveil their best 5 for the next one towards the end of each year.
However, compared to other stylistic currents, such as men’s/women’s and children’s fashion and accessories, in interior design there is never a decisive break between the must-haves of the previous year.

Let’s find out together, in preview, what are the trendy styles for 2023 and what are the colors used to make the most of them, waiting to discover all the news in the sector at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Contemporary classic style
Among the trends and styles in vogue in 2023 is the timeless contemporary classic genre .
It is characterized by the union of furnishings and accessories, as well as finishes, made of wood and by a simple, minimal and current mood.
The general mood is not aseptic or sparse, far from it, as a whole the classic contemporary environments are rich and sophisticated where every accessory is tidy and in its place.
Maximum usability and comfort, ease of cleaning and customization and there is no shortage of made-to-measure, space-saving, modular, retractable or fold-down products.
The textiles, mostly in medium-dark tones, are inevitable and help define the mood of the various rooms.
The trendiest unusual touch? The hyper-feminine pairing of pink with black and total black with gold. Not only that, to amaze, just use robust furniture characterized by curved lines, also ideal for breaking up the monotony of too geometric furnishings.
Chic modern style
In the modern chic style, textures become the protagonists and arise from the desire for sensory experiences that involve interior design and, indeed, the senses at 360 degrees.
Above all on a tactile level, the decor becomes rich in wooden furniture and accessories , made with natural fibers and materials such as unstructured linen and there is no shortage of plants and/or dried flowers.
Many decorators also use artificial plants, as long as they have a hyper-realistic mood. Overall, the modern chic style appears reassuring and the various elements refresh any environment.
Classic luxury style
The classic luxury style is a concentrate of sophistication, if we can define it that way.
What is best able to give life to this mood are the refined combinations of material textures, first of all marble, parquet and metals, often painted in gold, copper or bronze.
The color palettes in this style are fairly flat, but there is a reason: they must support and emphasize the allure and unique strength of the main materials such as marble with its veins, wood with its nuances, etc.
In the classic luxury stylenew and retro furnishings are also mixed, many are restored and modernized with more vivid matt colors, or neutral but very shiny. The wall paintings are mostly neutral and there is no shortage of frames and wainscoting.
Elegant industrial style
Among the trendy styles of 2023, the elegant industrial one also stands out, ideal for both large and smaller domestic spaces.
In particular, the calibrated use of color is the jolly detail capable of greatly dampening the sharp edges and the raw mood of the most original industry.
Nuances such as eucalyptus, aqua green, sage, olive green, coral and lobster are very trendy, both in warmer and colder shades.
In short, the authentic industrial style is “tamed” and made even more comfortable, romantic, up-to-date, personalized in order to create ideal and always made-to-measure homes.
Trendy urban style
The trendy urban style is perfect for furnishing and characterizing above all town houses, those of the metropolis regardless of the dating of the building.
The must-have is gray, declined in the most varied shades, from strong to dusty, from soft to colder ones.
Surely thanks to the excessive use of these palettes, a harmonious, neutral space will be created, easy to change over time and, certainly, extra soothing and comfortable.
Among the materials, never again without parquet, especially dark, metals, steel, corten, raw concrete, but also leather.
To emphasize the exclusivity go ahead with glass, crystal, and small bright touches in silver or copper.
Furnishing trends 2023 according to the architect
I’ve compiled a list of 2023 furnishing trends for you , the ones that he himself was able to feel, touch and use for his current and future projects.
Environments are getting smarter
Yes, in 2022 environments will become smarter, more accessible, multipurpose, also thanks to the ponderous advent of smart-working .
For example, you will find a great multitude of tables and coffee tables, retractable, extendable, folding, perfect for transforming themselves from simple support surfaces to meeting tables, for studying, working, eating, etc.
Very modern and slim, but extendable, are the new consoles, real must-haves in our 2023 homes.
Kitchen trends for 2023
Among the 2023 trends for interior design also the boiseries in the kitchen .
These are wall panels made of the same materials as the kitchen wall units and which can give many advantages, for example:
- you will create a visual/aesthetic continuity between horizontal and vertical planes, also camouflaging the dimensions so as to make the contours disappear in even the smallest rooms, which will seem larger;
- you will be quicker to clean, they are in fact more comfortable than tiles;
- you will limit the work of the tiler because these panels are actually assembled in a few moments without the need for masonry work, even while installing the kitchen.
The kitchen is also the protagonist of the mix of several shades. You will find on the market kitchens made with contrasting colors that will give maximum dynamism, or that combine neutral or, on the contrary, bright colors with different materials and textures.
The trendiest combination? Certainly solid wood with brushed steel. The handles, on the other hand , disappear, becoming one with the doors, while the dimensions of the tall units expand and, inside, more flat space is obtained.
The panels of the doors themselves become real walls, perfect for hiding the space equipped for the laundry room , for the pantry or for a wine cellar.
Living area trends for 2023
The equipped wall is the protagonist in the living area, as always, but the trendiest versions of 2022 are very minimal, we could say lightened.
The walls become spaces to be decorated with frames, paintings, prints as long as they are well ordered and harmonious.
Never again without wallpaper and, in general, the living area this year will be played with two colours, as for the kitchen, also in strong contrast.
Sleeping area trends for 2023
In the bedroom, soft neutral colors have always been the protagonists , but never as in 2023.
The nuances of the earth, grays, romantic and dusty colors, pastel colors, sand, the most natural shades possible will reign supreme.
All this will contribute to the creation of truly hyper-relaxing, harmonious spaces reminiscent of spas or hotel rooms in the most renowned spas around the world.
