In the world of interior design, trends seem to change at the speed of light. What’s stylish one day can appear dated the next – so we constantly keep an eye out for new ideas from designers. Another way we can spot a trend before it begins? By noting the pieces designers (and design lovers) select from Viyet. Here are the trends that are going strong this season:

Metallic Elements

Gold, rose-gold, bronze, and silvers instantly dress up a room. This makes these materials especially perfect for this time of year, though the metallic finishes can easily blend in with other styles the rest of the year.

One to try: Vintage Brass Console Table


Though mid-century is still going strong, pieces from the ’70s feel a little less overexposed. Though you might think of the designs as over-the-top, they make decadent focal points when used sparingly.

One to try: Vintage Baughman Style Chrome Frame Sofa

Nature Elements

Crystals, petrified wood, seagrass, and stone bring an organic texture that’s almost impossible to replicate. Whether used as accessories or key pieces, you can be assured that no two are exactly alike.

One to try: Raul Carrasco Petrified Wood Coffee Table


Though Ikat has always been popular, the pattern is increasingly in demand for its ability to fit in with the top trending styles of 2017: Boho chic and global nomad. Another pattern making a comeback? Chevron, particularly finer lined designs.

One to try: Kravet Paris Ikat Pillow


It’s been a while since we’ve seen this material – and it has come back in full force. Luxurious velvet brings a cozy element to a room, especially when used for pillows, armchairs, and sofas.

One to try: Warren Platner Velvet Easy Chair and Ottoman
