Trends from the apparel fashion world arrive in home furnishings and furniture more quickly today than ever. This season, fashion and furniture trends are virtually hand in glove. Along with the perennial fall favorites, burgundy/oxblood and menswear herringbone, Fall 2013 has a wealth of new hues for you.
Cobalt blue leads the field; richer and brighter but just as reliable as navy. Cobalt’s at home with all its complements on the orange side of the color wheel, especially trendy coral. Just as hot is emerald green, a savvy successor to spring 2013’s mint green. These are trends with staying power to make a room look up to date but not faddish. If you want a little more jolt, try on this fall’s brocades and tribal patterns, animal prints, frisky polka-dots or any mélange of black/white/gray. Whatever your style, there’s a fall fashion trend to update your home.
Upholstered in leather or dynamic fabric, a generously scaled, 42-inch-square cocktail bench will welcome guests, coddle kids and make your whole room more comfortable. This one is “Mace” from Sam Moore. Just top as needed with a tray to hold drinks or a throw for cozy texture.
Can an investment piece be totally of-the-moment stylish? You bet. The Cadence chair from Sam Moore combines two trends with staying power: wild zebra stripe plus a true, deep hue. The fashion Cobalt finish is one of Sam Moore’s standard fashion finishes. The pop of color on the exposed wood of the chair makes this a standout look that coordinates safely with any and all wood tones in your room. Pick a pair and lead the herd!
Leopard is the hottest animal trend this fall, and it’s a keeper, especially accenting this eye-catching, sinuous Chloe chaise. Other leopard fabrics in the Sam Moore line include the 2578 in Ruby red or the 2578 in onyx . Mix, match and follow the call of the wild from the comfort of home.
This Graydon reclining chair from Sam Moore is definitely not your father’s recliner!
Trend-right and rich as autumn’s harvest, this grape hue is almost as intoxicating as the Art Deco-inspired lines of the chair itself. Nailhead trim in one of five finishes, from antiqued to modern and cool, add a brilliant finishing touch.
This Taraval club chair from Bradington-Young says it all: Show off your sophistication with chairs this sleek-lined and comfortable, sheathed in luxurious blue-green leather that’s fearlessly today and beautifully timeless. Tone it down with rich chocolate brown, deep evergreen or oxblood; rev it up with sassy coral or golden mustard.
Calfhair, ponyhair and the like are big news this fall, especially when inspired by all things wild and wonderful. This ample Juno cocktail ottoman combines smooth leather with the season’s hot hair-on hide; a design mix that is both eye-catching and comfortable in timeless neutrals.
Elaborate brocades and embroidered looks are big in apparel fashion this season, inspired by opulent past ages and legendary lands. Heading up the accessories trend brigade are gleaming golden statement necklaces. In furniture, these glorious but very wearable trends come together in this Rhapsody Bombe Chest from Hooker Furniture, inspired by 18th-century Venetian chinoiserie. Add one or two pieces of the Rhapsody Collection to your room and see how gorgeous a timeless trend can be.
