Statement lamps are in, and it’s easy to get in on the trend! You can completely change the feel of a room by adding a statement floor or table lamp.

The cottagecore trend was made popular on TikTok during the pandemic, and it’s not going anywhere in 2022. Cottagecore emphasizes old-fashioned or traditional styles like embroidery, making things by hand, and elements of hygge, the Danish and Norwegian concept of “coziness.”
You can incorporate the cottagecore style into your home this year by making your own decor and outfitting your home with crochet blankets, cross-stitch artwork, and handmade artifacts.
It’s never been easier to make changes to your lifestyle that can benefit the planet. Many people are looking into ways to live a more sustainable lifestyle, including plant-based eating, avoiding fast fashion, and recycling. That trend has carried over into the world of home decor, and the desire for sustainable furniture is at an all-time high.
You can get in on this trend by upcycling items to create your own unique designs and buying furniture from sources that care about the planet. Our RESTORE line of wood tabletops and shelves is a great example—all of our lumber is ethically sourced right here in North America, in collaboration with organizations that are working to preserve the health of local forests.
4. DIY Furniture
The pandemic showed us that sometimes you need to take your home decor into your own hands. With plenty of time at home, many people discovered a newfound passion for DIY projects like building their own furniture. There’s nothing more rewarding than creating a one-of-a-kind piece that can stay in your family for generations.
If you’re not a professional, it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to DIY furniture. Our kits make it easy to build things like tables, shelves, clothing racks, and more! Check out the full selection in our shop.
5. Vintage Pieces
Don’t tell your grandparents, but vintage styles are back with a vengeance in 2022. The 70s in particular are inspiring many, with burnt orange and mustard emerging as dominant colors in the home decor space.
In a way, this trend goes hand-in-hand with sustainability. While vintage-inspired pieces don’t have to be old in order to fit the aesthetic, you can find plenty of secondhand vintage furniture and home decor at thrift stores for affordable prices.
