Home & Garden Blog

If you have been waiting to give your dining room a makeover, the new year is a great time to get started. The pandemic changed the way people eat, and the return of families dining together is more popular than ever. Trends in 2022 dining room furniture are focused on comfort and making the dining room the heart of the home.

Round or oval tables

In 2022, you can expect to see the focus on round and oval-shaped tables versus rectangular or square styles. Round tables create a more intimate dining setting and are reminiscent of a charming café. Rounded edges also create softness and coziness in the room.

If you have a small dining room, look for a round pedestal table to save space. For a larger dining room, look for an oval style. The dining room table should always be placed in the center of the room as the focal point of the dining area.

Color is making a comeback

While neutrals remain popular, color is coming back in 2022. Look for dining room chairs in colors such as emerald green and navy blue to balance out a neutral color palette. It is trendy to blend a mix of dining room chairs instead of just one style. For instance, you may want to use four wooden chairs and add a pop of color with two fabric chairs in a bold color.

Scandinavian style is hot

Look for upholstered chairs in a heavy cord, velvet, and leather to appear in dining room showrooms. Expect to see a combination of light and dark woods in dining room chairs and tables. Combing benches with chairs will continue to be a hot trend in 2022 dining rooms.

Environmental-friendly furniture

Due to environmental concerns, furniture manufacturers will continue to construct furniture from sustainable sources. Bamboo, wood, cork, and rattan will grow in popularity in dining room chairs, tables, and hutches. These earthy and sustainable pieces will add a nature-inspired look to your dining room, which will make it naturally warm and inviting.

As families return to dining together at home, having a well-designed dining room is a hot trend for 2022. The focus is on creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere where families can enjoy an evening meal or where friends feel welcome when invited for dinner. With all the great furniture trends for the new year, you are sure to find one you love.
