It’s been an eventful year on the home decor front: The wave of pastels has quietly died down, and eccentric couches have exploded to the point that they’re as commonplace as Ikea. Yet more big trends have asserted their influence on the decor.

Below, I’m parsing through each of the big trends entering (and leaving) the scene in 2022. From quirky shag rugs to curvy furniture, keep scrolling for a list of the pieces everyone can’t stop talking about.
