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 designer Joshua Rice’s picks.

“Turntables and vinyl aren’t necessarily a new trend, but based on client requests, they are still going to be going strong well into 2023,” says Rice. “There are some great new design-heavy options for audiophiles.”

“What I am seeing is a new appreciation in the blatant imperfection and obvious handcraft ceramics can convey,” says Rice.

“This is something I’m very excited about because I think this is a genre of incredible design that has been frequently overlooked,” says Rice. “Designs from Japanese talents Rei Kawakubo and Shigeru Uchida are some of my personal favorites. The elusive double-seat ‘September’ chair by Uchida is my personal ‘white whale’ as an avid design collector.”
