Interior Design Trends 2022

2022 started with a lot of rain in the UAE, so all last year’s dust is washed away, and we can start into a new year all clean & fresh!

This year, we still focus at making us at ease! The home has become the center of our lives being the place to work, sleep and socialize - so we want to feel warm, comfy and airy in our home, with rooms that feel like a big hug while still serving multiple purposes.

But now it’s also time to move on, to bring some freshness and a sense of discovery not only to the homes but also to offices, as our mindset regarding workspace changed by working from home and to other commercial spaces as we learn to live with the “new normal”!

So, what are the main trends for 2022? And how does our Urban Nest collection pick up those trends?



There is no other colour that is a better symbol for freshness and hope than green. This year is all about the rich emerald green!

Last year, we saw a lot of sage in interior design but Emerald green is the vibrant, saturated variation predicted to be big this year!

The HKliving 2022 collection picks up this trend with their The Emeralds collection! 

And while we are waiting for the HKliving 2022 collection to arrive in our showroom end of February, we already have some selected items of this collection available - and some lovely green accessories from previous collections as well. 

Add some shades of fresh green with this eye-catching framed painting

Or be bold with this stunning XL bamboo lantern!



Warm brown colours will be back, playing with neutrals to create rich and elegant spaces.

Spice up your room with this 3-seater sofa in retro style in velvet corduroy aged gold. The sofa has small black lacquered metal legs. Perfect to form the center piece of an elegant living room!



After spending much more time indoors, we are now seeking to reconnect with nature. 

Organic materials like stoneware, rattan, wood and clay add soul and bring life to the home.

This handmade wicker coffee table stands out in the crowd and  will add an authentic feel to any space!


Our homes are our safe haven. No wonder sculptural and curved furniture is here to stay in 2022! Curved forms embrace us welcoming and friendly, creating one’s own world, no matter if at home, in the office or at a café.​

Our retro lounge fauteuil bouclé provides a homely comfort seating, an all-time classic in a subtle nude colour or in a bold  new brick colour (coming soon!)

Combine it with a sculptural side table like our earthenware side table in warm olive and add the bold green XL glass vase.



The All White look is over, people will start to experiment with colours and patterns much more. The “More is More” Granmillenial look embraces floral patterns and an updated 1940’s vibe. 

This adds a touch of glamour while making a statement - but also gives comfort and a certain ease of living. 

Think workspaces, your living room or even your landing – spice up your design with some retro pattern!

Add a statement with this gorgeous metal wire floor lamp!

Or add some colour with our DORIS for HKliving cushions - which one is your favourite?



With a different mindset regarding work from home, our homes will have even more to serve for our workspace. If rooms have to be designed for double duty, why not do it in style?

Quickly store away your work utensils in this handmade retro webbing dressoir cabinet in the colour black after office hours and then set your dining table with your favourite tableware  to enjoy the time off duty!


Vintage elements have a subtle charm that is not easy to explain. Their design is fascinatingly timeless but still re-energizes the room!

You only want to add a little vintage accent? Then try one of our retro lamps!

Do you like the Gesso table lamp in the colour matt mustard. Inspired by the 60s and 70s, switching on the lights was never this funky before!

Or how about the all-over printed vintage lamp shade inspired DORIS for HKLIVING shades? Switching on the lights was never this funky before!


 Last but not least, a trend that we see in lots of interior designer projects across the UAE – sophisticated and refined outdoor furniture! Winter’s here, we can enjoy the gorgeous weather and entertain outdoors! The patio becomes an extended living room and with the same attention in style and design!

Our all-time favourite is the aluminium outdoor lounge sofa – it comes in three colours for the base and two shades for the covers.

The perfect setting to come home, kick off the shoes and enjoy the breezy evenings before summer heat is back!
