Don’t get us wrong — we love all-encompassing, wall-to-wall design trends like pattern-on-pattern, organic modern, and coastal grandmother. But sometimes, a design trend is as simple as a material, new or old. From the subway tile and shiplap resurgence of the 2010s to the 80s-inspired terrazzo boom of 2018, specific stones, finishes, and metals can become as ubiquitous as a trendy vase or paint color.
What we love most about this concept is that it feels more subtle and attainable — simply swap your old candle holders for trending brass or add a marble tray to your coffee table, and voila! Your space instantly feels more current.
With that in mind, we tapped Havenly designers for the trending materials, fabrics, and textures they’re spotting everywhere this fall. From camel bouclé to edgy travertine, these warm, texture-rich touches will warm up your home in seconds:
1. Red Marble
From coffee tables to kitchen countertops, richly-veined marble has been trending hard for a few years now. But this year, we’re noticing a distinct step outside of the standard black, white, and gray color palette. Popular retailers like CB2 and Lulu and Georgia are currently carrying marble accessories in an array of colors, specifically deep red and burgundy. While we personally love a red marble side or coffee table moment, you can lean into this trend via small accessories, like lamp bases and trays.

2. Camel Bouclé
Texture-rich fabrics like bouclé, faux fur, and sheepskin have likewise been trending, but we’ve noticed a subtle rise in moodier hues, like camel, olive green, crimson, and even black. Go all-out on the chic look with a camel bouclé accent chair, or add subtle hints of the fabric via throw pillows. Either way, the look is ultra cozy and perfect for fall and winter.

From Crate and Barrel and McGee & Co to CB2 and Pottery Barn, it’s clear that warm, neutral travertine is a hot material for coffee and side tables, vases, decorative objects, and beyond. The minimalist in us loves the soft, natural palette that blends in with any design style, while the modernist adores the pop of edgy stone. It’s contemporary, yet timeless.

4. Green Velvet
In line with the moody, maximalist resurgence, green velvet is topping our list of trending fabrics to watch. The sumptuous, rich material adds the perfect hint of textural drama to any room, particularly if you opt for floor-skimming curtains. Plus, if the below chair and ottoman are any indication, the fabric looks beautiful draped across trendy curved furniture (particularly with tufting).

5. Antique Brass
Trend aside, we think antique brass with rich patina is straight-up stunning. We’re pleased to see this timeless metal everywhere this fall, from vintage-style candlesticks to lighting, plumbing, cabinet hardware, picture frames, and beyond. Remember: the more worn and aged, the better — skip high-gloss gold and go for a vintage feel!
While we can’t resist a tasteful decorative pumpkin or two come fall, natural terracotta adds a soft pop of orange to a space without leaning too seasonal. From terracotta pottery to desert-inspired throw pillows, accent chairs, and even area rugs, this warm hue is elevated and timeless (case in point: TV host Keltie Knight’s LA home).
7. Mercury Glass
Similar to the antique brass look, vintage-inspired mercury glass is having a moment this year. The beautifully worn, amber hue feels perfectly suited to the holiday season, whether you opt for staggered candles, a decorative table lamp, or even drinking glasses for your Thanksgiving tablescape.

We know — rattan has been on the up-and-up for years now. But thanks to increasingly popular design styles like organic modern, the material is here to stay. We love how it adds a warm, natural touch to any space, whether in the form of pendant lights, table centerpieces, or even a side table. The material is incredibly versatile, palatable, and timeless, particularly if you add it to your space sparingly.
9. Hide Rugs
From classic hide or faux-hide area rugs to unexpected accents like throw pillows and barware (yes, seriously), hide is a classic fall and winter material. In line with the modern-traditional design trend, this look is staging a comeback — it’s equal parts contemporary and classic, especially when a roaring fireplace is involved.
