If you spend a lot of time on Pinterest and Instagram browsing through gorgeous pics of homes, it might be a bit tempting to imagine that we live in a place where trends are something from days gone by.

Chevrons will continue to be in style although graphic prints on a large scale, abstract patterns and florals will be adding impact to your upholstered accessories and pieces. Sometimes though, even the most classic of patterns can make a big splash. Thin striped fabrics for wall coverings or for furniture upholstery.
Make a Statement with Lighting
At this point in time, there are some great things going on in the lighting industry. There is a resurgence in simple and clean pieces, but there is also a trend for modern fixtures.

Having a skirt that is well tailored is more than just a staple in a chic wardrobe. On a furnishing that is upholstered, it is more of a flourish that gives the effect of a refined look.

Made in America
This is a trend that has actually turned into a movement. More and more designers are supporting local brands and workshops that make their products right here in the good old USA. Many designers will use a piece or two that has been made by an artist or artisan as opposed to getting something that has been mass produced. It doesn’t matter if it is an upholstered chair, fabric on pillows that has been handwoven or just a piece of pottery. This unique items will make any space feel special. And of course there is the added bonus of supporting your local artisans.
