So long, summer linens! Goodbye, beachy blues! Fall trends have arrived and we're here to dish about every last one. Between jacobean wood, chocolate touches and 70s-inspired silhouettes, the design world is forging a new path for fall, and some of the trends may surprise you.

Below, we break down the 12 must-know interior design trends for fall and winter 2022 and, even better? We're sharing our favorite products for each category so you can shop the best findings for your home with just the click of a finger.

Sculptural Art

While framed prints and paintings will never go out of style, a new artful accent is taking over the design world right now: sculpture art. The dimensional statement pieces bring height and interest to otherwise empty corners of your casa and come in every design style and material imaginable. From classical Grecian busts chiseled from marble to abstract wire structures propped up on wooden sphere feet, this trend has a little something for everyone that will elevate your space in the blink of an eye.


As far as patterns go, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that’s more of the moment (and timeless!) than checkerboard. The ancient color-blocked design dates to the Greek and Roman empires yet feels decidedly fresh when installed in interiors today. Incorporate the classical checkered print in your home through ceramics, resin trays and textiles like rugs or bed linens.

Smoky Glassware

Pastel stemware was a hit during spring, and colored glasses show no signs of slowing down for the cooler weather. Lively pinks, greens and blue glassware give way to muted tones like mauves, taupe and charcoal that complement autumnal tables and decor with ease.

Warm Marble

Move over, Carrara — there’s a new marble in town. Crisp, snowy-white marble takes a backseat to warm-toned marble and natural stone like travertine in 2022. While Carrara is undoubtedly timeless, the cool undertone lends a starkness that designers are steering away from this season. The rich rust and sandy tones are a natural fit for fall color palettes and infuse a cozy warmth into any interior display. Get the look with sculptural accents, bowls and decorative accessories like the candleholders below.

Curved Silhouettes

Square-arm sofas and boxy accent chairs are in the rearview, and the design world is celebrating all-things curvy in fall 2022. Sloped, curved and asymmetrical furniture rose to popularity in the 70s, and the soft silhouette is getting a major comeback story 50 years later. Bring graceful lines into your design with statement-making furnishings like a waterfall coffee table, an arched wardrobe or a curved sofa. Bonus points if you choose trendy upholstery like bouclé or faux shearling.

Cottagecore Florals

Florals for fall? You can thank TikTok's cottagecore aesthetic for this groundbreaking trend. This trend stays true to its roots with ditsy floral prints, stamped prints and organic woven fabrics but it gets a new, moody look for fall with deep, saturated colorways befitting the season. Embrace the warmth at home with autumnal floral dinner napkins, tea towels, pillow covers or throws.

Ruffles + Waves

Curved furniture isn’t the only design trend thinking outside the box. Ruffled accent bowls and tabletop objects (like the candelabra below) are having a moment this fall, and this just in: we’re here for it. The free-spirited silhouettes are reminiscent of the 70s and add a whimsical element to any bookshelf, desk or tablescape design.

Dark Wood Details

It was only a matter of time before white-oak-everything got the boot. After years of soft and bright wood tones, the design deities are rewarding us with the opposite end of the spectrum: deep, dark and oh-so-moody wood tones. Incorporate the espresso wood in your home through accent furniture like side tables or chairs, or add it to your entertaining arsenal with the wood serving boards below.

Artful Upholstery

Few textile trends feel as fresh and timely as brushstroke upholstery in neutral, tonal hues. The artful motif brings movement and whimsy to the most buttoned-up bedrooms and dens, pairing well with contemporary and transitional finishings. Commit to a statement-making furniture piece like the chair below, or dip your toe in the trend with a swirling brushstroke pillow cover or seat cushion.

Saturated Jewel Tones

Ah, jewel tones: The trend that’s here to stay but worth mentioning anyways. Dramatic emerald, sapphire, ruby and citrine applied with luxury velvet or jacquard textiles will always create a statement in fall and winter design. Go all in on the trend with saturated velvet drapes, duvets or accent chairs.

Earthenware Vessels

Stow away your pristine glass vases until next year because fall 2022 calls for warm, organic earthenware vessels in unique, unexpected silhouettes. Matte ceramic, stone and terracotta vases create a stunning base for foraged fall foliage and faux florals. Play with scale and opt for extra-large earthenware vessels to yield the most striking fall display.

Chocolate Touches

Chocolate brown is the new black in 2022. Swap out your inky accents for this equally moody, slightly softer alternative for autumn. Dark chocolate upholstery, bedding and accent furniture create contrast against otherwise air backdrops without appearing stark or overly bold. Pair with classic fall colors for the most beautiful results.
