Retail Furnishing and Furnishing Trends 2022 – Hindustan Times | NutSocia

Interior design will continue to be in demand in the near future and as more public and private spaces become available they will need to be modified to better meet recent Covid-19 rules and avoid overcrowding as interior design is not only in demand but to be is required in households and retail. Retailers around the world are focused on creating more immersive and engaging indoor environments for their customers, which includes designing spaces that are both visually appealing and user-friendly, and retailers are also leveraging technology to enhance the customer experience, particularly in regards to for personalized recommendations and real-time inventory updates.

In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Angelique Dhama, CEO of OBEETEE Retail, shared: “Interior design and decoration trends in 2022 are not just about what looks beautiful. It’s also about what feels beautiful on the inside. The Henry’s (high-income not yet rich) and millennial homeowners today are focused on creating a space that reflects their inner selves, and they are steeped in the concept of sustainability. That’s why everything in the interior sector now revolves around the use of products made from natural and sustainably sourced raw materials – a trend that I personally also see in the carpet industry. In terms of design, the minimalist approach is prevalent among audiences, along with a muted and subtle color palette.”

Uttamaditya, CEO and Founder of U&I Interiors, spoke about how much of the world was captivated by the pop culture phenomenon Pokémon Go in 2016, another technological advance quietly sneaking into our homes – Augmented Reality (AR), Uttamaditya pointed out, CEO and Founder of U&I Interiors AR has been on the minds of engineers and innovators since its conception in the early 1980s. However, he shared that it has only started to make its way into our daily lives in the last few years.

He highlighted what these interior trends will look like in 2022 and listed ideas:

1. VR and AR – While we’re still in the early stages of virtual reality and augmented reality, both will become popular interior design trends over the next decade. With Virtual Reality you can imagine what a room would look like with different furniture and decorations; Augmented Reality uses your smartphone to do something similar. We can expect that these technologies will continue to improve at an impressive rate. Both also have ecological advantages as they rely on natural products like wood or stone, while VR works best when paired with headsets made from organic cotton.

2. Artificial Intelligence – Within five years, virtual reality and augmented reality will have had a significant impact on interior design. Architects will use these technologies to customize interiors for individual clients based on many factors: budget, taste, desired environment, and more. Today’s artificial intelligence may not be able to meet all of these requirements at once, but it will be able to in five years’ time.

3. Smart Home Technology – Smart home technology will soon be able to collect and store data about the patterns and habits of its owners. It then uses those observations to adjust accordingly — for example, it could adjust the indoor temperature or brightness when a user enters a room. This customization of natural products is sure to become an incredibly popular trend over the next few years.

4. Nanotechnology – Beyond making human-sized robots, nanotechnology could play a role in future interior design. Nanotechnology uses tiny particles to create materials that are lighter, stronger, and less expensive than their natural counterparts. This is great news for designers trying to create furniture and other objects with a high level of personalization at an affordable price. The use of nanotechnology means lighter materials can be made without sacrificing structure.

5. Designer Bots – To personalize your home, you should make sure everything looks the way you want it to. This might mean tweaking the look of your sofas or adjusting your favorite piece of art to better fit a wall, but what if you don’t have time for all of that? What if you want a designer bot to do this for you? We already have AI to help us with shopping – why not with interior design too? In 2022, you might be able to use an app on your phone to take a picture of your living room and let an AI tell you what colors work best there. You can even try out different furniture arrangements and see how they look before you buy anything!
