15 Interiors Trends for Autumn 2015

From artisanal glassware to the deconstructed kitchen; our predictions for the trends that will define autumn 2015.


1. The Deconstructed Kitchen. The less-than-perfect kitchen, cobbled together from disparate elements.

2. Black Kitchen Utensils. Black kitchen accoutrements; see more at Kitchen Tools with a Masculine Edge

4. Dual Purpose Furniture. Furniture that does double duty: charges devices, for instance, or includes built-in storage as in the Planks Collection (shown) by Max Lamb for Benchmark, introduced at the London Design Festival.

5. Room-Spanning Kitchen Storage Rails. Room-spanning kitchen rail storage, as in this kitchen by Boffi. See more at 13 Kitchens with Storage Rails.

6. White Kitchen Appliances. Are white appliances the new stainless? We think so (for examples, go here and here and here).

7. Ikea Furniture Disrupters. Above: A handful of upstart design companies are coming out with flat-pack furniture at Ikea prices.

8. Mossy Green. Our resident color forecaster Alexa says mossy green is the next big thing, as in this bedroom at Margot House in Barcelona. (We think she's on to something.)

9. Black Tapware in the Kitchen and Bath. The bathrooms at the Ace Hotel in LA have a noirish appeal. See more at Steal This Look: Ace Hotel in LA Bathroom.

10. Mid-century Brand Revivals. In Sausalito, Robert Young has relaunched his father's groovy lighting collection. In London, John Lewis has just reissued Robin and Lucienne Day's stackable polyside chair.

11. Pittsburg is the New Portland. The Ace Hotel is opening an outpost in Pittsburgh in late 2015 in the East Liberty neighborhood (once home to steel magnates such as the Fricks, the Carnegies, and the Mellons). Google opened an office in 2010, the Andy Warhol Museum is nearby, and Ace is calling it "the Sleeper City."

12. Artisanal Glass. Is glass the new pottery? We think so; we're all assembling collections of handblown vases and more.

13. Beauty Products for Furniture. Organic salves and solutions for furniture care; we like Shop Tamsyn's Wax Eternal, an organic polish made from cold-pressed olive oil, beeswax, herbs, and organic essential oils.

14. The Tawny Sheepskin. The accessory du jour? Brown sheepskins are displacing snowy white sheepskins as the weather turns. One of our favorite sources? Black Sheep (White Light).

15. Unexpected Tile. Tile in unexpected places; a cabinet interior in a London Victorian (l), for instance, or a bathroom cabinet in a French farmhouse (r).
