As the boundaries of design continue to evolve, 2024 brings forth an array of captivating trends reshaping the essence of interior design. From sculptural designs that stir conversations to warm, earthy tones echoing nostalgia, the interior design trends for this year marks a celebration of comfort, individuality, and sustainability.
Let’s explore the top trends for 2024.
1. Statement pieces.
Sculptural furniture is in. Think furniture and lighting that will start a conversation and leave guests in awe.
Our Beehive pendants do just that. Their unique, nature-inspired design serves as a captivating conversation-starter, adding a striking statement to any space. Hang these sculptural statements from a high ceiling over a dining table for a beautifully lit and impressive interior.
You could also hang your statement pendant lighting above kitchen islands, to create a unique and impressive look, whilst providing gentle task lighting for meal preparation and dining.

Brushed finishes or hand-tooled plaster is taking centre stage as a popular wall finish predicted as an interior design trend in 2024. Think Roman clay or limewash, to give your space a highly textured feel.
But texture doesn’t just finish with walls, patterns in wooden and stone features create an interesting patterns and give a room a tactile feel. For example, our Marble table lamps are finished with swirling veins that form intricate patterns, giving spaces a unique and contemporary look whilst adding texture.
3. Warm earthy tones.
A play on a 1970s colour palette, a spectrum of brown tones is predicated to add warmth and tonality to an interior in 2024. Chocolate browns, cappuccino, taupe, rust and deep golden wheat colours, give spaces a cosy and earthy feel, bringing a softness to a scheme that you can’t always get with black or charcoal.
Rich browns layer perfectly with warm neutral metallics like brass or copper, evoking a sense of luxe in your bedroom or dining room. Brass or copper wall lights are ideal for highlighting textured brown surfaces, whilst providing an even illumination across the room.
If you want a pop of colour, a bright yellow pendant against a chocolate brown backdrop makes a stunning visual effect. Bold colours like bright greens also pair well with rich browns, mimicking natural and earthy colours.

4. Pantone colour of the year 2024.
Embrace the warmth with peach fuzz, the official Pantone colour of the year. Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, describes it as a shade that “resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless”. It’s easy to work peach tones into your interior as they pair with everything from neutral tones like cream and tan, to more saturated, colourful shades like lavender, berry and mint.
Soft metallics, like light pewter and brass, work well with the Pantone colour, creating a warm and soft aesthetic within your interior. Incorporating metallic lighting into a soft colour scheme is a great way to create a sophisticated and relaxing ambiance, adding snug and cosy feel to your space.
5. Organic curves.
Straight lines mixed with curves is an interior design trend in 2024 that we love. We’re seeing designers embracing curvature and more organic pieces of furniture, such as curved table lamps or round mirrors. We’re also seeing designers embrace curves through coveted design features. Think barrel-vaulted ceilings, arched doorways and rounded windows, creating character and softness to a space.
Don’t forget to balance playful curves with straight lines to create an interesting sense of movement and calmness.
The trick is to balance the evidence of curves back and forth to achieve balance. For example, in bedrooms curved Dome light shades or arched chandeliers are a great way to create a comfortable and relaxed feel in a room.
6. Artisanal everything.
2024 is all about bespoke pieces and artisanal work that showcase the skill of human hands. Moving away from mass-produced items, handmade, antique and vintage products are becoming a popular interior design trend. Homeowners are seeking out crafted and one-of-a-kind pieces, celebrating the imperfections that come with handmade pieces.
Each of our products is handmade with care by our team of skilled artisans and designers. From the tactile touch of hammered pewter to the intricate patterns of hand-carved woods, every detail in our designs have the power to enrich our experience of interiors beyond what meets the eye.
7. High-tech lighting.
People are embracing dimmable and colour tuning lighting, to make maximise natural daylight and brightness. Dimmable lighting allows users to tailor brightness levels to various activities, moods, or times of the day. All our LED bulbs are compatible with dimmers, offering a flexible solution for creating the desired ambiance, whether it's bright lighting for daytime work or a romantic glow for an evening meal.
Sustainability is at the forefront of interior design in 2024, with designers favouring materials with the least carbon footprint like wood and glass. Encompassing modern sustainable living means creating environmentally responsible and aesthetically pleasing spaces, whilst trying to minimise negative environmental impact.
9. Timeless style.
In 2024 homeowners are looking for a style that stands the test of time, existing beyond other trends. We continue to see traditional details and materials incorporated into living spaces – key elements in timeless design as homeowners want a quiet luxury created by using brick, handmade clay tiles and rustic wood elements.
Our fixtures are a representation of timeless elegance and modern simplicity, fusing classic and contemporary styles to create designs that stands the test of time. Crafted from robust, recycled materials, not only are they enduring in design but also durable in construction, elevating your timeless style for years to come.
Herringbone is set to become popular in 2024. Dating back to the Roman area, this distinctive zig-zag pattern is perfect for making rooms look larger, giving any space a modern refresh. Particularly popular kitchen trends, Herringbone flooring is a great way to introduce symmetry and balance to your home or commercial project.

11. Biophilic design
Here to stay, nature-inspired décor is set to be huge in 2024. Think lush greenery and natural light; this comes from the increased desire to connect to natural elements, where the feeling of being surrounded by nature is proven to boost wellness and wellbeing.
Design style will involve more natural materials, like wood and stone, and embrace sunlight and plants. Well illuminated rooms are the next best thing to simulate daylight. An instant hack for brightening up your home with soft, warm artificial light is to place wall lights evenly across the room. This way, your space will be brightened with even and gentle illumination.
Mirrors are also a good way to make a space feel bigger and brighter. Place a mirror on the wall across from natural light to reflect it around the room.
