With over 320 million users regularly pinning their of-the-moment inspirations and desires, Pinterest holds a lot of insight into the latest trends.

Connection, nature, and sustainability were common themes across all categories, including the home decor and furnishings space. People are also increasingly interested in global styles, looking to integrate aesthetic elements from faraway lands, like India and Spain, into their homes. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
