Timeless Trends for 2022

After years of living in a beige disposable world”, the trend of re-decorating because you WANT to and not because the look has dated, is BACK! We are overjoyed that TIMELESS is the new TREND and Ghorbany has you covered!

In an article in The Glam Pad the trends for 2022 and years to come, according to interior decorators and style forecasters, are:

A new traditional aesthetic

This doesn’t mean a full-on return to the styles of 100 years ago, but definitely a mix of classic furniture silhouettes and contemporary art and lighting.

Bringing the sexy of History back

Design experts are calling for a return to retaining and restoring historical elements in homes, embracing original architecture and creating solutions to update spaces without mass-produced commercial items. With ongoing supply chain issues world-wide there is already a major return to purchasing antique and vintage pieces, rather than waiting for mass-produced furniture.

Since the start of the pandemic, people are craving connections and history, more now. There is NO GREENER CHOICE than going antique and vintage. Embracing vintage furniture pieces has so many benefits. It is sustainably responsible since you aren’t using any resources to build a new piece of furniture and from an aesthetic perspective, it is such a wonderful way to make your space feel timeless. Antiques and vintage is the ULTIMATE resource in furniture.

Lasting style

2022’s trend is a return to a lasting style and the end of “buying it and throwing it away” consumerism . Choosing quality over quantity will inspire design enthusiasts to educate themselves and be more willing to wait for those pieces that they can surround themselves with for decades to come.

Individual character

Highly personal spaces that reflect the lives and interests of the homeowner are the antidote to the “cookie-cutter” designs we have seen in recent years.

Imperfection will start to trend in 2022 and bring back a more soulful, natural environment with personalised interiors that reflect the character of the inhabitants, and not the pre-packaged one-dimensional white homes of before that was marketed as the “perfect homes”.

Focusing on lavishly detailed surfaces, plush textiles, heirloom accents, and fanciful artworks, this year’s report reflects the shift to the at-home lifestyle born during the pandemic. These days, designers are prioritizing comfort and clients’ personal style: Homes not only need to accommodate a number of different functions but also provide a sense of escape from the troubles of the outside world.

Maximalist colours

Bid adieu to boring and beige in 2022. Color is making a comeback and the world is ready for it! Classic colors and punchy paints can serve a great purpose in the right spaces and really make art and simple furniture pop. Pretty silhouettes and floral fabrics come to life with the right hue and can help to create a coordinated, proper space.


Designers previously wary of intricately patterned wallpapers and upholsteries may soon come around, thanks to a rising tide of nostalgic, flower-studded designs. Whether applied to wall-hangings, wallpaper, or even pillows, botanical imagery is ready to take over interiors.

Of course another fantastic floral addition to any interior are classic Persian rugs of which we have a wonderful collection in store.

The art of tablescaping: bring on the silver, crystal and china!

A newfound appreciation for the emotional qualities behind every piece will spark joy as we find space for lovingly repurposed vintage pieces in our homes. Fine bone china, crystal and tablewares gilt with gold and silver grace our tables, similar to the tables our grandparents and their parents once sat down at. We’ve finally come full circle and embraced these unique treasures from the past. People are going all out with over-the-top tables and are really enjoying the art of it.

We have a wondeful collection of antique and vintage dinnerware items to choose from in Ghorbany Benmore, that is sure to add amazing flair to your dinner parties.

Books are back

Not only are more people curating books for decoration (and their personal libraries), but they’re also building stairs and tables out of vintage books. Even if you’re not a hardcore bibliophile, books are great tools to use as visual references.

“I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m just flipping through the pictures, but that is such a great way of not going online and learning a little bit about history, People have done the work of curating all of this information for us, so why not use it? Some book covers from the ’80s are art pieces, so I like having them out even just for that, “ says designer Sophie Collé .

You heard it here first: Books are the new status symbol.

Craftsmenship is back with a bang!

We are finally returning to and appreciating craftsmen of all kinds and the unique pieces they make. The skills involved in hand making things will also be more appreciated and celebrated.

The concept of craft and handmade “will apply everywhere,” says Nina Campbell; “design is becoming much more personal, and much more unusual. No more catalogues!” Wendy Nicholls of Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler defines it as “individualism.” Olivia Outred explains “We’ll start to celebrate the time it takes to make things, and the process that the maker goes through will become almost as important as the end finished piece.” (Ho use & Garden UK)
