NeoCon 2022 Design Trends

BRINGING NATURE INDOORS

The comfort of home wasn’t the only warm and fuzzy furniture trend. Wood was everywhere at NeoCon and products that support biophilia in the office are on the rise. Don’t expect a return of all-wood desks and wood task chairs. Instead, furniture makers are adding wood accents, wood legs and sumptuous wood table tops. The trend extends beyond wood and could be characterized by the word “natural.” Materials were natural, plants were integrated into designs and vignettes felt warm and cozy.
