Design Is Going to Get Decadent
"We're also going more towards the 70s and 80s. The expanded use of chrome, plexiglass, linoleum, neon colors is more and more present. This year, in line with the design trends, we assume we'll see more of these influences in branding, too, including: more flashy colors, metallic touches, gradients, patterns on patterns and risographs."
Amy Morris and Anna Polonsky, founders of The MP Shift
No More White Walls
"At least in New York, I'm seeing a massive break from the sharp and clean aesthetic that took over the restaurant scene for the past few years. A return to the bold color schemes of the 60s—millennial pink and bright red, turquoise and jet black, forest green and muted gold, to name a few—has arrived on the East Coast."
Sasha Bikoff, interior designer
The Industrial Look Is Out
"All the reclaimed wood, bare light bulbs and exposed brick feels overdone. These were all definitely design choices that were part of a huge trend but are starting to feel dated and overused. There is a very monotone feeling to walking into a space that's all wood, exposed brick and off-white."
