Happy New Year! It is time to start looking at what we are going to love in 2019 and what is new out there.
One of the most exciting trends this year comes again from the past and it is fringes (you are probably going to regret giving away your Grandma’s armchair any minute now..).
If you opt for a bold color or a more conservative nuance, fringes will vest your sofas and armchairs, giving your room a more glamorous bodouir aspect!
Velvet, damask and jacquard textiles complement the use of fringes particularly well but I have also seen fringes made from the same dark brown, luxury ranch-style leather from sofas.
I love the collection Fringes by Munna, its armchairs and the sofas (see below some examples) look fabulous from the front, the side and the back and they come in a series of vibrant amazing colors so it was difficult to pick only two to show you.
If you want to revamp an old armchair, you can copy the Gucci armchair and stud the fringe along the base of the seat, a cheap and easy trick.
Keep in mind that the fringe doesn’t need to replicate the dominant color of the seat but actually a contrast adds interest.
What to expect then? It is time to stop eating and drinking and start getting creative around the house!
