Flatware Trends in 2022

Here at Cambridge home®, we love following Fashion Week! The runways this time of year may be focused on clothes, but a lot of those trends bleed over into home decor trends, too. That makes it the perfect time of year to think about a refresh.

And what better way to refresh your home’s style than with a new set of flatware? It’s fashion for your tabletop!

If you’re looking for ideas, here is a rundown of what’s going to be the hottest in luxury flatware for the coming year.

1. We’re Revisiting Y2K!

And it’s a big trend in fashion this year, one that is largely driven by nostalgia for those years. So what’s Y2K style? In apparel, it’s a blend of funky futuristic mixed with retro themes. Think bright colors paired with daring designs!

What does that mean for flatware? Check out our Rainbow Mirror 20-Piece set as the perfect Y2K style icon. It pairs bold colors with a simplistic design made to show those colors off.

Another great option is the Rumble Gold Ombre 20-Piece set. This one gives you a smooth, modern shape and style paired with a distressed finish that springs back to yesteryear.

If you’re into the pretty patterns that were so prominent during Y2K, then the Floriana Etched Black Mirror 20-Piece set gives you a gorgeous floral design etched into a sleek mirror-black finish. 

2. Mixing Materials for the Win

In today’s fashion, there is now more focus than ever before on mixing materials. Designers want to create contrasts not just with colors and shapes, but with textures, too.

The same goes for home decor – interior designers are mixing materials to create sharp contrasts.

3. Making a Return to Timelessness

It seems that each year, the fashion world turns back the clock to revive timeless favorites. In clothing this year, it’s styles like platform sandals and pleated skirts.

To capture timelessness in flatware, you need a classic design – but feel free to pair that design with a modern twist, like gold metal tones or a brushed finish.

Our Greenpond Mirror 20-Piece Flatware Set is the perfect example of classicism. With the ridge down the center of the handles, this is a design that has seen a lot of use for many, many years  – and it’ll continue to look great in years to come, too.

Other options include the Eloquence Champagne Satin 20-Piece set, which combines modern brushed champagne metal with classic teardrop-shaped handles, or the Emmy Champagne Satin 20-Piece Flatware Set, which gives you a modern take on the traditional bar design.

4. Copper Makes a Comeback

This is a home decor trend that was prominent years ago. Remember copper-bottomed pots, copper wall art, and copper drawer pulls and cabinet handles?

Now the trend is making a comeback – and it’s offering fresh new copper accents for us to choose from. 

Here are some of our favorite copper sets:

Those are some of the biggest trends we’re looking forward to – but there will be others to check out, too, like hammered flatware or minimalist styles.
