It’s no secret that furnishing and home trends follow closely behind fashion trends. Although the home decor world moves a little more slowly, it is every bit a world of fashion and style. Here are some trends from the 2013 runways, translated into furniture. (Fashion images from Vogue.com – designers noted to give proper credit for their stunning work!)
Choose an element or elements from the original design and look for pieces that have similar colors, textures, patterns, etc. This chair is a particularly great match because the straight, tailored lines of the frame echo the streamlined, tailored skirt and jacket. Add a great black, high gloss table and a splash of red with a picture frame, artwork, pillow or throw and you’ve got the look.
The textures and richness of the textiles in this great look from Miu Miu are echoed in the rug shown. Add some leather seating in a butterscotch (like the gloves) and deep, high gloss wood furniture with contemporary, Asian-inspired lines and your room will be runway ready.
The McQueen design shown has these great layered textures and a variety of open grid patterns in different scales. The Sculptura table from Lexington uses the strong, graphic assymetric grid to give it movement and strength. Add a tortoise-shell lamp with a black, textured shade and a shiny black leather chair to complete this strong look.
