As one of 2023’s trends to look out for in the Asian Paints ColourNext trend forecast report, ‘Sleep Sense’ is a movement towards improving health and wellness spurred by a collective longing for a slower, simpler life

In a refreshing change from glorifying jedi-like skills in multitasking or constantly keeping up with the rat race, the latest trend in design is ‘Sleep Sense’. Prioritising the quality of a good night’s sleep, this trend for 2023 brings in a sleep revolution that counters hyper productivity and scarcity culture with safe, comforting cocoons that allow us to switch off. From innovative technology that enhances the way we sleep to paints and sounds that help us decompress, and even the humble Indian charpoy having its global moment—the simple act of slumber is the main focus across science and pop culture this season. 

 

SLEEPING IS ON-TREND IN 2023

As one of 2023’s trends to look out for in the Asian Paints trend forecast report, ‘Sleep Sense’ is a movement towards improving health and wellness spurred by a collective longing for a slower, simpler life. It is described as nostalgia for a time when sleep was not something that took a backseat to tackle impending external stresses—it was simply a peaceful, restorative few hours to rewire our bodies. In many ways, it is a quest for a better slumber, making full use of everything a modern home has to offer while also bringing traditional sciences and indigenous crafts to aid the way. There is a renewed focus on breathable, handcrafted fabrics and locally sourced natural materials with an overall calming and cooling colour palette of sandy beiges and breezy greys. The trend forecast also encompasses a range of hard materials like bamboo, cork, sandstone and coconut coir, along with softer, soothing textures such as kala cotton, felt and mulmul.

5. SUPPLEMENT A GOOD SLEEP

In the early days, popping a pill for a good night’s sleep meant a sleeping tablet that was addictive with a slew of long-term side effects. Today, natural supplements such as magnesium and melatonin have gained popularity as safe and effective ways to improve sleep quality. Magnesium, in particular, is known to relax the body and mind, while melatonin helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle. Several brands have started incorporating these supplements into their products to promote a good night's sleep. Restful Sleep by Wellbeing Nutrition, is a 100% plant-based melatonin melt strip with Valerian Root and L-Theanine to calm one's nerves, provide insomnia relief, and help the body’s natural process for falling asleep. Similarly, ZzzQuil by Vicks is a non-addictive sleep gummy which additionally has Vitamin B6 to fight tiredness and fatigue, to wake up feeling fresh and invigorated the morning after.

The Indian charpoy bed is a traditional handwoven bed that has been used in India for centuries to rest, sleep, dry spices and vegetables, and even as a table. In recent years, this iconic piece of furniture has been gaining popularity across the globe, being featured or reimagined in a range of contemporary design projects. The charpoy’s simple yet elegant design and use of natural materials like wood and cotton make it a versatile and sustainable option for modern homes, while its unique weave pattern also offers comfort and support—making it a popular choice for outdoor lounging and relaxation. Many designers have embraced the woven bed’s simplicity and natural beauty, incorporating it into a range of modern design styles globally. 

The most recent famous example is a pair of charpoys called ‘Balam Stool’ by Sridhar Poddar that sit in Sonam Kapoor’s Notting Hill home in London.
