While the world is running around in their street style best enjoying the chaos of the concrete jungle, that is New York Fashion Week — we have other things on our mind. Fashion has always been a passion, but it will never stand in the way of our one, true, love: design. When asked to make a decision between recaps of the runway or sightings from the latest design showroom, it’s a no brainer: decor me, please! It’s why instead of chatting our favorite Spring 2015 moments — although, did you see the Tome and Suno show? Ok, how ‘bout Mara Hoffman? And dammit J Crew, I think you got us again. So good. But anywho. We’ve rounded up five design trends we’re loving for the new season!

Like Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, clusters of pendant lights are still going steady this season and are in fact H-O-T-T-E-R than ever. We love this high contrast matte black trio against an all white backdrop!

Marbleizing everything is everything right now! Since we trust you won’t be adding gorgeous slab counter tops to your world anytime soon, why not get a marble fix with smaller, more accessible accessories! These goodies {from H&M no less!} would pretty your fall table right up!

Gold cabinets. They’re not really trending, but they can be if you want them to be. And we want them to be…Is this even real life?

Sure, we’ve all got a sheep skin {or three, preferably Icelandic!} in our homes these days, but how about adding a furry little seat? Shearling stools seem to be having a moment. They’re popping up everywhere – even Nate Berkus has a version for Target! While we’re still not entirely sold on this one, a sassy little stool is certainly a fun way to add a twist to your space without making a major design commitment.

But we are all for adding a divan. Half bed, half couch, 100% chic. I’m stalking 1stdibs as I type.

And those my friends, are five fall design trends that will quickly catapult you to days of pumpkin spiced lattes and too much TV. It’s why we’re currently running, nay sprinting, {in our trending Normcore outfits!} all the way to the hardware store! —Bianca

  1. I’m going to be dreaming about a marble-topped table with black matte pendant lights above it (sigh). Those gold cabinets are AMAZING.

  2. Those matte black trio pendent lamps are going to be stuck in my mind all day long, like when you see a group of beautiful men in suites just hanging out somewhere together.
    So glad this trend is still going strong!

  3. Great list! I love the gold accents. Pinned 🙂
