“I saw a ton of velvet at High Point, from carved case goods and chairs to rugs,” says Maestri, who adds that the dimensional fabric appeals to “both sight and touch.” Julian Chichester “Flamenco” dining chair, $3,230 at Laura Lee Clark Elizabeth Lavin

As any local weatherman or Magic 8 Ball will tell you, predictions are an inexact science. Try as you might, you’re sure to miss a scattered shower or love-connection query or two. The beauty of interior design, of course, is that there’s no real right or wrong—what’s on the horizon in one designer’s world may be in the rearview for another. (One man’s shagreen is another man’s shiplap, as it were.) Still, the start of another year begs questions of what’s new and what’s next? To get the answers, we turned to top local talents to share what they expect to see in 2023.

Here are Dallas architect and interior designer Eddie Maestri’s picks.

Maestri is “loving” this throwback look, from skirted tables and cord covers to gathered fabric sconces—and even case goods that have the look of draped fabric.

Maestri scoped scallops galore at High Point Furniture Market. “I love it because it gives a sense of whimsy and fun,” he says, though he warns it may be a fast-passing fad.

“Manhasset” Alabaster Sconce, $756 at Hudson Valley Lighting

The white mineral glows beautifully when backlit. Says Maestri: “It’s riding off of the popular solid surface veining moment.”
