Here’s what we’re excited to see in 2023
Upcycled and reimagined materials embrace the patina of age to redefine forward thinking in home finishes and decor.
AKDO Vintage carpets are created from antique Anatolian rugs and seasoned kilims that transport the nuanced beauty of the past into the present. They are available in six patchwork patterns and variegated colorways from faded neutrals to sunset brights. Prices upon request, The Water Closet
Recycled glass with a matte finish, available in endless colors and patterns, is right for both transitional and contemporary kitchens and baths. Reclaimed Chicago bricks, right, transformed into floor or wall tile come in three finishes and as many sizes. Used indoors or out, they have a wow factor that is equal parts farmhouse chic and urban loft cool. Prices upon request, Bottega Design Gallery
A DIFFERENT ANGLE
What some find retro, others find timeless, and sometimes it only takes a little change in direction to make all the difference.
With its vertical lines and an artisanal overprint, the Grasscloth Geo wallcovering in Seaglass has modern verve while its peel-and-stick ease is right for those who fear commitment. $69/roll, West Elm
“Curvaceous” suggests comfort, but the come-hither good looks of these pieces speak directly to clean lines and structured aesthetics. These new-year finds are
pretty, but we’re equally attracted to their design smarts.
A cutting-edge furniture designer in Austin, Four Hands introduces the form-forward Zoia mahogany sideboard — cheeky enough to turn heads while still being all about
function. Price upon request, Sally Lynn Home
