Kährs identifies interior design trends for 2022

Home News Kährs identifies interior design trends for 2022

Altamonte Springs, Fla.— Kährs identified six interior design trends projected to be popular in 2022 and beyond. These trends were identified by the Kährs product manager of innovation and design, Petra Lundblad.

Following are six trends for 2022, according to Lundblad:

KahrsLight Scandinavian

The popularity of Scandinavian interiors grew over the past years and will be seen again in 2022. The clean, minimal, calming aesthetic will continue to be a top choice in design, expressed through a light color palette of whites, beiges, tans, soft peachy pinks and grays. Materials used within this trend are visibly textured, organic, durable and sustainable. The floors in this trend will be light, white stained or natural oak, typically with a wide plank design.

KahrsCozy Colors

The Cozy Colors trend incorporates design elements typical of a “brasserie:” an informal restaurant that sells drinks and small bites. 1970s style permeates this trend, from tubular steel furniture to retro curves to cozy colors like olives and browns. In this trend, you’ll see painted ceilings, wood paneling, worn leather, marble accents, non-linear surfaces and concrete-looks. The floors in this trend range from dark to gray to warm brown, in both strip and plank design, depending on the space. You’ll also see the gray concrete look, which could be true concrete or a stone-look LVT.

KahrsHistorical Vibes & Patterns

This trend incorporates French style elements combined with contemporary design elements: antiques mixed with curated art, custom-made furniture and carefully chosen design pieces.

Patterned floors are the main choice for this trend, evoking a sense of history, whether in a chevron, herringbone or basketweave pattern.


Less a trend than an approach, the Vintage interior design trend means getting back to basics and re-invigorating the old as new. This includes rustic character, exposed brick and touches of old Americana.

The floors featured in this trend include rustic, handscraped, heavily brushed, oiled floors with darker stains and smoked surfaces; floors that feel lived in from the first day of installation.


The Tradition trend introduces balance to interiors, emphasizes function and sources sustainable, healthy materials that allow each person in the space to breathe easy (literally and metaphorically). Natural, organic, authentic materials take the spotlight in this trend, along with a movement toward “broken interiors” that create division and designation, versus “open floor” plans that hinder privacy.

The floors in this trend are light, mid-tone or soft colors, with an organic, textured visual interest.

Modern Future

The Modern Future trend features a “futuristic” style: geometric shapes and patterns, accents with a sleek look and innovative, bold colors that create contrast. Elements from different eras make an appearance in this trend, including retro curves, 20s art deco patterns, bright Y2K color palettes and natural old-world materials.

The floors featured in this trend vary but have this in common: they create a bold effect, whether in the width of the plank, the playfulness of sapwood streaks, the stateliness of dark filled cracks, or the unexpected contrast of color or stain.
