Discover the three fashion trends that will take your home by storm in 2014
Fashion trends have often migrated from the catwalk into the home and this season is no exception. We have spoken to Linda Holmes, interior director at LuxDeco, to discover the three trends from the Autumn and Winter 2014 fashion hows that will shape this year’s home decor.
What are the top catwalk trends influencing interior design this year?
Texture, folklore and gold were all prominent themes in London and New York and I think they’ll be the main ones to influence interior trends in winter 2014.
Can you give a brief overview of the trend?
Seen at many of the shows, including Tom Ford, texture is visually enticing and adds instant depth. It perfectly translates into the home creating an inviting space. In particular, sumptuously luxurious, tactile velvet is a big trend this winter.
How can you bring the Texture look into your home?
An investment buy into this look is the classic Chesterfield made over – Dom Edizioni’s Capitone Sofa offers a fashionable spin on an old favourite. Silky-soft velvet upholstery comes elegantly buttoned, while the cool charcoal hue keeps things modern. Choose rust-coloured cushions to lift the look.
For a more statement take, the Munna Cutie Chair is upholstered in a long-haired faux fur which you’ll not be able to resist getting your hands on. Considering its unique aesthetic, keep the design’s accents to a minimum, with plain surrounding fabrics and clean lines.
Or for a more subtle approach, add textured accents with beautiful cushions, such as Nitin Goyal’s Origami black silk cushion.
Can you give a brief overview of the Folk Chic trend?
This whimsical and languid trend is far removed from the minimalist lines of recent years – even the usually clean cut Burberry embraced floaty fabrics and vibrant prints. With an eclectic mix of earthy tones and traditional techniques, the Folklore trend underscores craftsmanship and details.
How can you bring the Folk Chic look into your home?
The folklore trend has few rules in the home – you can be wonderfully creative playing with colours, textures and prints for a powerful look or you can add a single statement piece.
Upholstered in a fabric inspired by traditional Persian rugs, the Andrew Martin Kilim Foot Stool, with its muted colour scheme, keeps the look classy while the carved wooden legs add a touch of elegance.
If you prefer a more minimalist look, the Tura Eclipse sofa, with its earthy tribal print cushions, embraces the trend in a much more delicate way.
Or opt for a rug like Nanimarquina’s Estambul for an easy way to add a folk chic accent.
Can you give a brief overview of the Gold trend?
Opulent and decadent with shimmery fabrics, molten finishes, and shiny treatments – nothing is as glamorous as gold, as seen on the Marchesa catwalks, among others.
How can you bring the Gold look into your home?
To keep the look elegant select muted gold tones and accessorise with neutral colours. The Verpan Onion Light in gold is a great piece to add this look into a room – with its iconic shape, it can add a real focal point.
Or try Calvin Klein’s Luster Wash Rug for an instant uplift and BD Barcelona’s Salvador Dali’s Leda Chair for a touch of fun.
