What’s right now? Because the world changes so quickly, that question burns in our minds regularly. As humans, we live through our senses, and part of the answer involves art and design that soothes us, supports us, and delights us. We need that nourishment to face the challenges of our time, at home and in society at large. TABLE Magazine looks at fall and winter trends in art, craft, and design that are just right for our lives in 2023.

At Your Fingertips

Embrace the radical touchability of dramatic faux fur, sensual feathers, crinkled leathers, and exaggerated knits. Part of the appeal of these dramatic textures doubtlessly derives from our continuing evolution out of pandemic caution and back into living fully. But some of the energy that draws us to these assertive and engaging options comes from our desire to be noticed. Clad in these treasures, how could you be overlooked with this 2023 trend?
