Etsy’s Top 2020 Home Decor Trends Include Retro Art, Suspended Planters & More

Considering we’ve all already spent a record amount of time hanging out at home, now couldn’t have been a more appropriate time for Etsy to announce their 2020 home decor trends. According to an Etsy trend expert, this year’s top trends include everything from the expected, like resin, burl wood, suspended planters, and eco-conscious fabrics; to the unexpected, including bee motifs, seashell shapes, Old World staples, and even ’70s sunsets.

1. Resin

Searches for redefined resin on Etsy saw a 62 percent increase in the last six months, and it’s appearing throughout nearly every nook and cranny of the home, from doorknobs and coasters to clocks and wall art.
