Interior Design trends are unlike any other. The trends can last much longer then say fashion or retail trends. Usually with interior design trends they go to a much higher income starting out and within 2-3 years the middle class will be able to integrate the trend into their home. One thing I enjoy about IKEA is that you can buy a "knock off" of the new items that are trending. Some of the rends for the New Year that I have been reading about are Transparency, Craft Industry, "Color Riot" and Natural Materials.
