DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2017
Pastels and Gold
Don’t be afraid of a little gold…or a lot. What we’ve seen at our furniture trade shows is that gold and pastels are in for 2017. Class up your home with a touch of gold. If gold intimidates you, try throwing in a few accent pieces to start: gold frames, side tables with gold trim, or wall art with gold undertones. Lighten up your space with pastel pillows and white furniture.
Layering adds so much dimension and texture to a space. It’s a popular trend for 2017. What we are seeing are large natural or jute rugs with something fun and wild layered on top. You can layer with color, white, shag, or cowhide. This top layered rug can be switched out with the seasons!
Shag and fur are BACK!
At Modelhom, we are seeing the rising popularity of accessories that can be cycled through the ever-changing trends. For example, shag rugs, fur blankets, and furry pillows, are sweeping through the design world and we are seeing more and more of them making their way to our showroom. If you’ve kept your 70s-style shag rug from high school then you are in luck…. It’s all coming back baby! Featured above is from the Justina Blakeney’s Fabel Collection created by Loloi Rugs. Hand woven in India from bamboo and cotton, these styles give a fresh look to that retro shag!!!
