Five New Interior Design Trends for 2013

Norwalk Furniture’s design and development team has developed these five trends to tell the story of what they see happening right now and in the near future in the interior design world:

Tribeca interior design trend

TRIBECA  A restrained color palette of mid-ton grays and dark, steely blues anchors the contemporary, urban vibe of Tribeca. Textures range from velvets and boucles to polished chintz-like fabrics, while patterns include animal prints, flame stiches and graphic looks.









Cool Britania:  With Union Jack-inspired themes and colors, this comfortable look combines heavily textured, nubby fabrics with architectural and industrial accents. A palette of British red, white and blue predominates. Amidst the mostly textural story, look for occasional tongue-in-cheek references to classical motifs, such as roses or quatrefoils.


B.A.:  Inspired by the vibrant energy of Buenos Aires, Argentina, B.A. encompasses warm shades of avocado, mustard and clay, imbued with tobacco tones for a somewhat vintage, weathered aesthetic. Punches of teal add brightness, while nature and foliage patterns add a subtropical vibe.




 Indochine: infused with Asian design themes and touched with tropical references, hot hues of deep orange, pink, fuchsia, imperial red and turquoise are cooled with natural linen. Look for dragon, fan, lantern and calligraphy motifs, as well as a handful of fabrics with sateen finishes than reference Chinese silk.




Sunset Blvd.: Decidedly glamorous and graphically inspired, Sunset Boulevard is clean and crisp with a closely edited color palette. Deep, mid-tone shades of green — from emerald to Kelly — dominate, along with bright, sunny yellows. Patterns such as chevron, Greek key, grill work, grid and gate designs, all pop against accents of black or white.
