Fall Trend Forecast

Fall Trend Forecast

Fall is a the time of year that ushers in new ideas for home. A couple of strong trends are emerging. I am seeing copper reappear in modern forms. It is showing up paired with perennial favorites of gold and silver.  All that glitters is good and copper is the new IT metal. Copper is always complimentary to the inky indigos that we are all loving.  I am also seeing textile wall hangings make a claim for the NOW statement piece. These examples go beyond macramé and are textural art forms. It a natural progression from our obsession with knit. Fall trends are rooted in organic materials.

I love these fabulous Park Place stools with the rosy copper by Yabu Pushelberg.

I love the blurred boundaries of artist Anan Teresa Barboza’s piece.

And an airy composition by artist Nike Schroeder could win over anyone who thinks it might not be for them.

The delightful handiwork of artist Natalie Miller’s wall hangings are enough to catalyze a craze.

Painterly Furniture

A painterly brushstroke captures the mood and intention of an artist. This application on furniture carries the attributes of a painting. It’s spontaneous, dynamic and adaptable to direction. The palettes are endless. Fabric paints are widely available and it’s just as easy to use additives if you have latex paint lying around. I recently suggested to a client we paint her dining chairs to very loosely tell a story so when guests are present the dining room would still be animated. I would just as easily order a new piece and paint it, but before you recover or donate your tired old furniture consider a painterly approach.

 

I collaborated with an enormously talented artist Nina Santos in updating these tired chairs.
