You’ve seen it everywhere: quiet luxury. It’s a trend that says, “If you know, you know,” boasting well-tailored, Shiv Roy-inspired ensembles (nary a designer logo in sight) and expensive haircuts that exude a just-got-back-from Capri vibe. And so, when searches for “quiet luxury” skyrocketed by 614 percent year over year (according to Google), it was only a matter of time before the look made its way into our homes.

How to Get the Quiet Luxury Look at Home
Really, there are just two components that define this look: understated color and elevated texture. “Layering warm, neutral tones throughout your home in a variety of textures will create a luxe and classic look in any space,” says Nidhi Kapur, founder and CEO of Tribeca-based furniture brand, Maiden Home. So, per Kapur, you want to start by matching your most prominent pieces—like a sofa and accent chair—with a rich, organic undertone, like rich olive or warm golden brown. “When selecting multiple colors within a piece, it is important to coordinate the undertones of the hues,” she explains. “This allows you to play with materials and finishes while still creating a space that feels unified.”
The key to the ‘luxury’ element of this trend, however, is all in the texture. Kapur says, “Selecting materials in similar tones with contrasting textures adds subtle depth and drama to a space without introducing an influx of color.” Luckily, she has a few tried-and-true texture pairings that’ll create a curated feel to any room: Linen + leather, tweed + velvet and chenille + shearling. “Linen and leather is like the jeans and t-shirt of texture combinations, a true staple. Tonal tweed makes an ideal pairing with accent chairs in rich velvet or fine Italian leather, [and] the soft luxury of chenille marries well with the highly textural drama of shearling.”
And FWIW, Maiden Home has an entire furniture collection that revolves around bringing quiet luxury home. Think: a slipcovered sofa with clean lines and customizable upholstery, a canopy bed with a hand-carved, ash-wood frame or a sling chair with hand-knotted suede ties and textural hair on hide. Plus, the brand even offers an in-house design service, where you can meet with a designer to create a mood board, color palette, floor plan and beyond. Either way, you won’t want to miss 10 of the brand’s best-selling pieces below.
