It’s that time of the year again to take stock and make notes. Some of us review new life goals, while others review design trends. We understand. Design trends are way more fun. 1stDibs released the results of its annual designer survey. The survey records the findings of hundreds of interior designers from around the world. According to experts, cozy colors lead the way in 2021.
Get Back to Nature
2021 will see a return to patterns inspired by nature: wallpaper, upholstery, paintings, and yes, the return of the indoor plant.

Warm, Earthy Tones
The colors most often referenced in the survey were cobalt, emerald, burnt orange, and yellows. These are colors that invoke a sense of calm, inviting, and cozy – yet still give one a sense of experiencing the freedom and beauty of the outdoors.

The 1970s Are Stayin’ Alive
The nostalgia of the ’70s is finding its place in the design trends to dominate 2021. The style represents a time of freedom, individuality, and embracing all things bohemian, like macramé and fringed upholstery. Bring that crazy decade back into your home with those traditional details your parents would love.

We’ve all seen the Artisanal trend in clothing, baking, and brewing – and it is now more prevalent than ever in the world of furniture. Hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind chairs, end tables, and desks are making their mark in everyday homes. Just like you, it is truly flair and function rolled into one.

Desk Chairs With Flair
Last year brought with it makeshift home offices, which meant many hours parked in chairs meant for dining. 2021 offers beautiful, stylish alternative desk chairs to provide comfort and support for hours on end. The bad news? These gorgeous chairs might make you feel pressured to show up to work in something other than sweatpants.
