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.
“I’ve been going down an English design rabbit hole,” Dallas designer Corbin See says. “I’m preferring comfy over minimalist—more plush upholstery and personal collections. I’m liking textural finishes and antiques with character. I don’t like design that looks like it tried too hard, and the English have mastered that.”
Here are See’s picks.
