I have to say, after my visit to the High Point Furnishings and Accessory Market last week, my suspicions have been confirmed…imperfections are perfect.
The draw of home fashion will continue to move toward reusing items in new ways. Natural fabrics (that are made using more sustainable methods) are dancing into the mix, manipulated into a tailored/organized look with a bold sense of nothingness in the color department. Rusty parts of exhausted items are next to newly spun silk. The once only traditional look of cut crystal is encompassed and surrounded by iron. The lines have been changed and redrawn.
It is exciting as always to see what product designers dream up. Out of necessity pops wonderfulness and I am loving it! Don’t get me wrong though, I could never move away from color and the richness of classic traditional design or the striking forms of contemporary design that leave me wanting more, but this is a fun and comfortable look. It brings peace to the mind and hope to the heart. Whether or not you like this new direction, the reason it is here though (reduce, reuse, recycle), is here to stay.
