Eight rooms full of chintz.

According to 1stDibs’ sixth annual Interior Design Trends Survey, the trend we are most likely to see make a comeback in 2023 are pastels and chintz. Of the survey’s 880 participating interior designers, 28% forecasted that of the past seven decades, the 1980s are the era that will inspire 2023.

“If there’s one constant about the design industry, it is that it’s always changing. What we consider ‘good design’ is reliably influenced by a range of sources, from fashion to environmental concerns, pop culture to social media, and more,” said Anthony Barzilay Freund, editorial director and trends expert at 1stDibs. “By conducting this survey, we can quantify the designers’ feedback and better understand their recommendations for creating beautiful spaces that not only dazzle and amaze, but also contribute to living in a better world.”
