Tassels and fringing were a prominent fashion feature on the Autumn/Winter 18 catwalks and this retro look is now making its way into our homes in 2019. The look can be introduced to your home on lights, mirrors, furniture, cushions and other accessories. It is a great way to add some fun and texture to sleek, minimalist spaces.
If you’re concerned about the naff factor and reminders of your Granny’s house, then rest assured that this time around the look is more chic boutique than old fashioned 1970s.
Here are a few key ways to easily introduce the new fringing style to your home:
Make a bold statement with fringed ceiling lights or even a fringed chandelier. For a more subtle look, a fringed lamp will add just the right amount of interest and texture to a gloomy corner of a room.
Fringed cushions and other accessories
Add a few cushions with a fringe to your space as a small introduction to the trend. Mix and match them with regular cushions. Fringes work well with a knitted texture and there are even sparkly and metallic options available. Blankets, duvet covers and wall hangings are just a few other ways to add this trend to your home.
You could go all out and add fringed curtains to your room but a cute and easy idea is to scale it down and add simple fringed tiebacks instead.
Fringed furniture is definitely a more prominent retro fringed look and will appeal to those who really want to embrace the trend and turn heads. Many furniture pieces can be ordered with a fringe added to the bottom such as sofas, footstools and occasional chairs.
Although this look isn’t for everyone, the new version of fringing is definitely making waves or ‘swishes’ in the interior design world this year.
