There’s no question that fringe details are so hot right now for clothing and accessories – handbags, boots, heels, skirts, vests – It’s actually been around for a couple seasons now and we just can’t seem to shake it off. There’s something memorizing about the way it swooshes as you move and how it transforms an ordinary ensemble into something full of life.
Simply said, fringe is fun
The most fabulous aspect about fringe is its immense amount of motion and layered texture. Lately, I’ve noticed more and more furniture and accessory brands are also taking note and introducing fringe elements to their lines ~ and I have to say, we can’t get enough!
I spotted these leather fringe chairs at Lee Industries this past High Point Market. Talk about taking a simple, squared chair and giving it some personality! They were an eye catching, conversation piece that everyone just had to take a moment and sit in.
These small ottomans by V Rugs and Home are great ways to add a little accent of playful fringe into a space. I’d place a pair of these side by side in front of a fireplace for supplementary seating.
It’s evident designer Laura Kirar is inspired by the qualities of fringe. Her collection for Arteriors is filled with fringed interpretations. This tassel lamp and the ceiling pendants below are beautiful examples of taking fringe to another artistic level. The layering and draping is stunning and elegant, yet the metal gives it a rock and roll edge.
I’ve been admiring lighting and accessories by Ro Sham Beaux for quite some time and adore their light fixtures with the hanging strands of rock quartz and crystal beads pictured here.
The organic way the strands hang freely is fabulous and it has a whimsical fringe look to it. The illuminated beaded look is so fresh and sophisticated, pictures can’t do them justice. They are stunning in person!
Ro Sham Beaux also makes this fun sculptural fringe wall sconce. Made of strands of gold painted hemp, it’s no wonder why they named this gem “Gisele.” I can see this used in a series down a corridor or a pair flanking a large mirror for a statement.
So there you have it – in addition to rocking that fringe purse this season, find something with fringe detail for your home too! Remember a little can go a long way – you wouldn’t dare want it to compete for any attention.
