Fall 2018 Trendspotting – Home Decor Trends from the Las Vegas Market

Meet Alessandra Wood, the Director of Style at Modsy. With a PhD in Design History and an M.A. in the History of Decorative Arts and Design, she is a bona fide design expert in all things interior design. Fresh off a trip to the Las Vegas Market, we picked her brain on what’s sure to be trending this fall in interior design.

Sometimes, what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay there. For example, Modsy’s style and merchandising team just got back from the Las Vegas Market, and with us, we’re bringing all the Fall decor trends for 2018.

A furniture and decor conference that happens every January and July, “going to market” is what designers do every season. This is how we see the latest furniture and decor collections from our partners and discover new vendors for the season. We scour the industry to find the best quality, style, and price for everything we include in your Modsy designs.

And, of course, we do a little trend spotting (or better yet, forecasting) while we’re there. Across the different showrooms and retailers, we spied several key fall decor trends over and over. Our predictions are in.

Ready to get an early look at some of the fall 2018 decor trends you’ll likely be seeing all over the place? Keep scrolling for my predictions, and a look at what’s sure to be trending in our Fall 2018 Modsy designs.

fall 2018 decor trendsTextured Neutrals

Neutrals are everywhere! If you’re thinking “oh great, more bland neutrals,” think again. This season, it’s all about neutrals that pack a punch with texture.

Get ready for materials like linen, vintage velvet, jute, and fringe. And if you’re embracing neutrals, be sure to layer in different textures to keep your space from feeling flat.

We’re also seeing a resurgence of white-washed, weathered wood. A lighter, cool-toned wood, it’s great for creating a beachy or vintage feel inside any space.

The texture trend continues in seating.

Woven seats are all the rage. Whether it’s cord, caning, leather, or rattan, retailers are showing off seating with a gorgeous weave.

2018 has seen its fair share of statement trends, but the year isn’t over yet.

Enter sculptural pieces, a trend that’s taking statement-making to the next level.

What are sculptural pieces? Think furniture, lighting, or decorative accessories that have a sculptural quality. Often geometric in form, these sculptural pieces are works of art in and of themselves.

As a design historian, I love a lot of design movements. But Art Deco with its curves, geometry, and unexpected drama is, hands-down, one of my favorites.

This fall keep an eye out for furniture and accessories that mimic the hallmarks of deco architecture. Bold and dramatic, these pieces sport geometric patterns and sophisticated curves, and are often rendered in brass or other luxurious materials.

fall 2018 decor trendsEarthy Palettes

While we still can’t get enough of neutrals, this fall we’ll also see a introduction of saturated, earthy colors.

Think burnt sienna, saddle, rust, mossy green, and subdued blues. These hues, while rich and saturated, have a slightly toned-down quality to them and won’t feel overpowering. They also layer beautifully to create a warm and cozy feel in any space.

    All my life I’ve been a colorful person. I’ve had orange and purple accent walls in my living room, however, after moving recently and starting “fresh,” I find myself drawn to “light and bright.” I am painting with cool neutrals and love the idea of adding textured elements. I was hoping you could tell me where the geometric star-like wall piece is from in the first photo and the tapestry(?) in “Earthly Palettes.”
