What does 2024 have in store? In Design Psychic, our community of editors, experts, and tastemakers predicts the trends coming soon to a home near you.
Most interior and furniture designers would say they avoid trends altogether—but that’s because when you’re one of the best creative minds in the business, you’re usually setting trends, not pinning them to your mood board.
In that spirit, we asked some of design’s brightest lights—from Jeremiah Brent to Rachel Bullock—to predict what we’ll all be adding to our homes in 2024. The verdict? It’s about to be a very colorful year.
I am really excited by color, which is something I never thought I’d say. I’m having a lot of fun with it personally in our projects, and finding a lot of freedom in it. I still like a tight color palette, but I’m dabbling. And I would say I’m definitely seeing a return to originality—people are looking for things and spaces that feel new and not like they’ve seen them before. And I think there’s a lot more freedom to try now. People understand the importance of home and the importance of creating a space that feels yours. So I’m hoping that it’s a new trend where it’s like: How weird can we get with our homes? How much can we tell our story? —Jeremiah Brent, interior designer

Handmade pieces that you will treasure for a lifetime: Craft is timeless. We are working on a furniture collaboration with Schotten & Hansen that will launch next year in dialogue with wood found in the Bavarian forests, harnessing the imperfections to create pieces inspired by mythical creatures. —Kit Kemp, interior designer, Kit Kemp Design Studio
Chunky glass architectural details, like amber glass blocks and textured glass. I’m interested to see how they mix in glass while keeping a space feeling warm and welcoming. [I also want to] see hand-painted details on walls and furniture, including hand-brush painted millwork versus spray. —Heather Spaulding, interior designer, Sunday Supper Club
We love incorporating classic fabric patterns (paisley, plaid, small florals, toile) in unexpected color combinations. And now that outdoor-grade textiles have gotten so much better, we’re using a lot of those indoors. We’re trying to reduce waste, and one way to do that is to create things that will last longer. —Rachel Bullock, architect, Laun
In 2024 I am looking forward to a continuation of eclectic, outside-the-box designers and motifs—really the postmodern idea that anything can be furniture. More functional sculptures as statements and time stamps, [showing] the progression of form and pushing boundaries of class as the nexus of streetwear and the effects of a “post–Virgil [Abloh]” world keep unfolding. I have seen tables that are Rollerblade tables to mind-bending pieces by Joseph Walsh that push material concepts in a new direction. I am [also] excited to see more diversity as varied bodies of color are being shown by designers, like one of my faves, blonder.than.necessary, as well as Garth Roberts and Robell Awake. —Robby Simon, designer, Play.Room
