NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — 1stdibs, the leading global marketplace for collectors and dealers of beautiful things, today revealed the findings of its first Interior Designer Trends Survey, which focused on interior trends that will dominate in 2018, 2017 trends that will fade and common mistakes clients make when redesigning a space. Research firm Surveys & Forecasts, LLC, sampled the opinions of top designers from around the world who are part of the 1stdibs Trade Program. This program provides exclusive benefits, such as discounted trade pricing and complimentary concierge services, to interior designers and architects.

The commissioned survey looked at changes in home design that designers will be watching for this year, as well as top fads from 2017 that are losing steam. Among the most surprising findings was the turn away from minimalist styles and washed-out, mostly white interiors, which had been among the most popular looks.

“1stdibs is fortunate to have 40,000 of the most talented interior designers take part in our trade program,” said Sarah Liebel, GM of the 1stdibs Trade Program. “This group is responsible for putting together some of the most beautiful spaces throughout the world, and we are thrilled that we are able to share their predictions for interior design in 2018.”

Between December 19, 2017, and January 2, 2018, researchers with Surveys & Forecasts, LLC, a full-service strategic research consultancy based in South Norwalk, CT, conducted more than 630 online interviews with interior designers who are part of the 1stdibs Trade Program, which consists of 40,000 registered designers.
