This year, the stagnant trends shattering not only interior but some other design industries are overshadowed by finer and less noticeable experimentation. Instead of radical shapes and materials — a careful reinterpretation of familiar wood, marble, and metal. Here’s our round-up of eight common directions spotted at New York Design Week 2016.

1. Mesh and perforation

2. Curves

3. Wired Metal

4. Nordic Colors

5. Concrete

Urban textures: concrete, cement, bricks, and blocks added some delightful charm standing next to traditional leather and wood.

6. Mixed Materials

Attempting to shake the mafia of traditional furniture design, some companies, big and small, experimented with combining surprising textures and colors. Among the most common once were copper+marble and metal+wood.7. Decay

A new and very humble direction in interior design inspired by all things abandoned and aged. An echo from wabi-sabi (Japanese aesthetics of imperfection) these pieces were closer to the artistic end of the interior spectrum.

8. Coated Metal

Friend of many modern furniture designers, sleek sheets of coated metal allow building precise, almost architectural interior pieces, by creating the interplay between flat and deep surfaces.
