There seems to be a trend for everything today, and furniture is no exception. As 2021 comes to a close, we are already prepared to see what 2022 brings in terms of trending colors. Austin's Couch Potatoes has so many customization options for our sofas, you don't have to trade comfort and affordability for trendiness. Here are some of the colors we're predicting will be big in 2022:
Red Is Not Dead
This color is making a big resurgence in 2022. It's perfect for people who want to add some excitement to their lives, without going too crazy. Red furniture can give any room an instant pop of color and vibrancy.

Rust Orange Is Now Considered Cool
Rust orange is not everybody's favorite color, but it has had a resurgence these past years due to its warmth and uniqueness. The way it stands out in your home, with its rich tone, will complement any color scheme you have going.

Make Room for Mushroom
What are mushroom colors? They are neither beige, brown or gray, but more of a balance of the three. It has a soft and creamy appearance that exudes comfort and simplicity. They can either make your home warm with touches or burgundy and maroon, or cold with smooth whites and speckled grays.

Green Is Going Strong
This color is always trending in the furniture industry, and 2022 will be no different. Greens can range from light mint to a more popular sage green, so there's something for everyone when they go shopping for new home décor. If you're feeling sassy this year, try pairing your green sofa with orange pillows or red decorative items!

Trendy Teal and Rich Blues
These colors are perfect for a more mature and sophisticated home. They can be calming and provide a sense of luxury, all while being on trend. The rich boldness of teals and watery blues enrich spaces with more subdued tones. So, if you want a subtle pop of color, consider adding a teal couch, or a set of teal lamps.

Color Trends That Are Dying Out in 2022
While we are very excited about the colors that will be popular in 2022, there are also some color trends that we believe will start to die out. Don't take it personally if you read this list and look back in your rooms to see them filled with these colors. Trends are merely a reflection of the times, a way to track where people's heads are at. With the rise of some colors, others must take a back seat. Here are some colors that we don't see as making a big impact in 2022:
No More Gray
Gray has been popular for a long time now, but we think it will start to die out in 2022. It doesn't really have any personality of its own and can often appear bland or boring. If you're still loving gray, don't worry – it'll be around for a little while longer. It's going to be replaced with earth tones, or as mentioned above, mushroom tones.
Golds add a nice pop of glimmer to a room, but we don't think it will be making a big splash in 2022. It's not that there isn't room for gold, either – we just feel like people are looking to color schemes with more depth and layering than before. If you still want some glistening golden color, try adding metallic accents instead of completely filling your room up with this color.
White Is Too Boring and Bland
This color is still white, but we feel like it will become boring. With so many other colors popping up in furniture stores, why stick with something that's already bland? White has lost its luster for us – instead of using it to brighten a room up, try adding color schemes with color and texture for a more interesting look.
What color trends are you most excited about for 2022? A new year means new opportunities to freshen up your home's look. Or, if you just moved to Austin, stop by to grab a couch in a color you want.
