All the 2022 Trends We Spotted (From the New Pink to NFT Rooms) at Art Basel Miami

The future is bright.

Once a year the art and design crowd descends onto Miami Beach to soak up the sun, dive straight into a week of heavy hedonism, and get a taste of what’s new and covetable in the market.

As part of my scouting duties this year, I battled with the Art Basel Miami traffic jams to hop between parties, lunches, installations, and fairs to round up all the trends as selected from my iPhone camera roll. Heads up: The home space is about to get really weird—from kooky creatures to furnishing the metaverse.

Botanical-Inspired Furniture

Florals were truly abundant in Miami, but showing up in as opposed to on the furniture. Particularly in Polish-born Marcin Rusak’s Flora Cabinet, which is made from live discarded flowers set suspended in transparent amber-hued resin. New York–based design studio Pelle made its Miami debut with its fantastical Lure Eden Mirror & Light, which quite literally takes inspiration from flowers—except you’ll never have to water these. | Art Basel Miami 2021 Trends, text by Jenny Nguyen, December 13th 2021
