Touch & Texture

August 21, 2017 blue sofa, nailhead, headbaord, follded fabric

Modern design is calling us to find style and comfort in an ever changing and busy world.

2017 will see design details such as top stitching, pleats, and tufted buttons, that will have us loving the new textural experience. Fabrics with raised plushes, velvets, and jacquards will sooth our senses. Our style can be expressed with windows draped in rich luxurious panels. Upholstery pieces will consider other details like nailheads and metal legs.   Designer tip – to achieve a timeless design ensure each piece/element has the same degree of embellishment. Keep finishes to a minimum, making one piece/element the focal point, like the head board with large nailheads for the bedroom. Pictures from the web.
