Interior designer Sasha Bikoff says that “leather couches, apart from English-style Chesterfields, have got to go in 2017. Comfort and design can go hand in hand, and leather couches can sometimes be tacky and are easily stained. Not to mention, they are uncomfortable in the warm summer months. I would love to see more people taking a chance on sofas and couches with bright colors or printed fabrics.”

Tiffany Fong, creative director of Capsule believes “we’ve seen wooden, midcentury legs on everything from sofas to dining tables for years now, and I’m looking forward to seeing more unexpected silhouettes incorporated into homes.”

Designer Shelley Johnstone says she’s “over spaces being too minimal and cold. I love the layers of fabrics, velvets and wools, grasscloth and rattan creating texture and depth, and lacquered ceilings and the attention to detail. I want to see more rooms that are interestingly layered and comfortable without becoming fussy.”

CEO of Rapt Studio, David Galullo hopes “that the trend to replicate midcentury-modern spaces inch by inch in 2017 fades away”. The designer believes that you should “build a room around what you love from every year and a variety of styles. Life is too short and space too valuable to freeze it all in time.”


Designer Glenn Pushelberg stated that “we would be happy not to see any more white, loftlike, art gallery–inspired, over styled interiors. What we do want to see is moodier, more artistic expressions and richness in colors and materials.”

Interior designer Anne Hepfer “would love to see ombré be replaced with beautiful printed fabrics and watercolor paintings, like those from Ferrick Mason.”

Designer Wesley Moon stated that the one trend she wants to go is related to “that cheap-looking bright gold metal that’s on every piece of new furniture. Old brass is great on antiques, but the trend of having a bright, shiny (yet somehow also matte) version of it on every new piece of furniture (often paired with lacquer, sometimes chevron patterns) is wearing very thin.”

Loren Kreiss, owner of Kreiss believes “the industry has been oversaturated with the grayed-out look. I would love to see the gray colors that have dominated wood finishes and fabrics move warmer and whiter in 2017. Customers are requesting more and more white, ivory, and ‘white white.’ These kinds of off-white finishes feel very current.”
