From small accent chairs nestled into cozy bedroom nooks to oversized sofas that make a grand statement, new furniture can instantly re-energize your home—or help you keep your interior fresh on a budget. Whether you are toying with the idea of a new piece or are all-in on redecorating in 2023, take note of the best furniture trends of the year before you start shopping. "From the resurgence of fully curved sofas to more subtle details like rounded or sloped chair arms, chair backs, and tables, rounded shapes soften a space and create flow," says Christine Kobervig Munger, an interior design expert and the vice president of merchandising at Fernish.

This natural color—particularly its darker varieties—creates a sense of earthy stability, says Claire Druga, an interior designer based in New York City. From furniture made predominantly from glass—like large dining tables—to smaller accents, such as lamps and side tables, glass is a texture you'll see everywhere this year.
"Glass furniture helps give a space an upscale and sophisticated feel," says Brittany Farinas, the CEO and creative director of House of One. colorful blue pink and orange living room in pittsburgh house Credit: William Abranowicz
And while these types of fabrics have historically been luxe and delicate, today's production methods and materials make them more accessible and durable.
"If you are in the market for a new sofa or upholstered chair, consider a lush velvet or a performance fabric that mimics a mohair or felt," Munger says.
For instance, try scalloped mirrors with fluting in a rainbow of pastels or ceruse-treated sideboards with soft-hued accessories on top. "Playfulness and youthfulness have been emerging since the flashy Barbiecore and Dopamine Decorating trends, which has since evolved into a softer aesthetic," says Druga.
Fluted, flowing edges will also become more common console tables and media cabinets; soft, oversized tufted seating will also evoke this pastel Danish trend. We've collectively spent the last few years focused on neutral color palettes and minimalist décor—but maximalism is finally getting the recognition it deserves.
