For years, the design industry has been buzzing about texture, and how plush or sinuous fabrics flip a design on its head for a totally unique effect. In 2017, the texture trend continues with the rise of velvet.
Velvet is a classic fabric that periodically enjoys a new surge of popularity. This year, we see velvet used on every furniture piece imaginable, from ottomans to dining room chairs to the smallest fringed detail.
Everyone loves a great pair of jeans, so it's no mystery why the design world is falling for denim fabrics, motifs, and patterns for home interiors.
Channeling indigo hues
and a perfectly worn-in feel, the denim trend of 2017 offers approachability to furnishings, finishes, and fabrics alike.
Taking cues from the velvet trend, denim-like fabric can be found on ottomans, window coverings, bed linens, and area rugs, offering a simple yet sophisticated take on everyone's favorite fabric.
Designers use stripes as a "neutral" element to anchor a space with clean lines and bold colors. In 2017, stripes will be used as a statement-maker all on their own.
With a bold brushstroke down the middle of a wingback chair, or as a re-imagined wallpaper pattern, the single stripe is the new must-know print. Stripes, whether a simple pinstripe or graphic configuration, can be worked into any space, from uber-modern to tailored and traditional.
