I’m sharing with you the tabletop trends for Winter ’22 – ’23.
I do this every season, as that’s when retailers and others tend to share their newest designs and products.
To provide you with the best information, I walk the stores and check them out online. I do my research before sharing what I find.
During the Winter season (which starts in December), it’s mostly filled with holiday items, which I try to overlook, as they are not always indicative of the whole season.
So checking out everything else, here is what I gleaned…

Selected Colors of ’23
Every year Pantone and top paint companies introduce their selected “color of the year”. It’s fun to see what they forecast will be the influencing colors for 2023. You often see these colors resonate with the products you see in stores.
Pantone Color for 2023
Pantone just announced their color choice for 2023 ~ Viva Magenta.
It’s gorgeous! Such a bright and lively color. Full of optimism. And it’s SO different than other selected colors for ’23.
I’m excited to see what role it will play on tabletops in the coming year.
Paint Colors for 2023
Major paint brands share their selected paint color of the year, too. What I notice about these colors that are different than Pantone’s selected color, is they’re all either neutral or muted colors.
They don’t have the bright vibrancy of Pantone’s Viva Magenta.
Sherwin Williams introduced Redend Point. A color they define as “blush-beige” and Behr announced Blank Canvas. A shade of white.
Both are neutral colors.
Whereas Benjamin Moore chose Raspberry Blush. A muted red-orange color. And Glidden selected a “bluish, greenish” color called Vining Ivy.
Both colors are tranquil and calm.
When you put all four colors together they work well. Almost as if they are a color scheme on their own.
Table Top Style Trends for Winter ’22 – ’23
To be honest, I was hoping to discover something new and exciting for dishes this season.
What I found was white. Everything white. In various styles, but still white. Especially at Crate and Barrel.
I get it. I see that design trends are going back to white walls. Away from the greys and tans. In fact, we just did that. We painted our beige walls white. Now they feel fresh and bright. I’ve always been a person that loves color on walls, but I needed a change. Kind of a reset.
I think that’s what the industry is also doing. They’re resetting. Back to white.
And you know what ~ I’m okay with that. After all, white plates are ideal for showcasing your food.
Clean Lines Everywhere
When it comes to the style of tabletop items this season, I see clean lines everywhere. Nothing is ornate. The style of the dishes, the serving pieces, and the glasses, it’s all clean and simple.
The look of the pieces can be used within any style. They don’t resonate with a specific look or trend. The styles I’m seeing are timeless.
And you can’t go wrong with timeless.
The colors I do see out and about are all Earth tones. If they’re not neutral, they’re muted. Which is indicative of the colors selected by the paint companies.
Colored dishes and glassware that I found were dark navies, forest greens, amber, and rust. Soothing colors.
I have to say that Winter ’22-’23 hasn’t had any surprises. In fact, trends from past seasons are still trending: fringe napkins, wood serving pieces, and coupe glasses. They are still on-trend and current fixtures on tabletops.
