If there’s one thing that definitely holds for fringes, it is “more is more”!
Fringes, both in fashion and at home, can take two different vibes: more sumptuous or more relaxed. So let’s see some examples of both in turn!
The first identity of fringes is one that I like to call deluxe. A rich cascade of fringes dresses up furniture and accessories, for a distinctively sumptuous effect.
To start small, a tassel can already be enough of an accent to add a touch of new. To curtains for instance, with a tassel curtain tieback.
Definitely recalling a Charleston atmosphere, the Fringes sofa by Munna is a real triumph of fringes! Three fringed layers run across the whole back and the sides. And with its velvet upholstery, it is a 100% trending piece for this year!
Fringed lighting? Yes!
In Cé by D’armes, long metallic fringes cover the light source for a scenic diffused effect.
In this original table tamp instead, the base structure is covered by a huge tassel that is actually fabric.
And fabric is also the fringe that falls from the bottom of the Nappa mirror by Oliver Bonas.
For a really, really, impressive result, take a look at this wallpaper! Designed by Tracy Kendall, it creates a unique swagging effect once installed on the wall. Definitely eye-catching!
Fringes are also an essential ingredient of any bohemian style interior. Laid-back and somehow messy, they are an invitation to relax.
This gispy fringe-style is everywhere in the shops for this spring-summer. Starting with Maisons du Monde. In their new collection Cabane, fringes are all around!
Again by Maisons du Monde is Panama, this bamboo suspension that looks like an unfinished basket.
Zara Home is also a lot into fringes this season and this pouf is just one example. Here, the fringes are attached to the upholstery with knots, so this item is a double winner for this spring: fringes & knots! (Be sure to take a look at the article on knots as well!)
H&M Home also comes along with this bohemian fringed mirror.
The combo woven basket + laid-back rug is a must in any bohemian space. Even better if they have fringes!
So what's your final verdict on fringes? Deluxe or gipsy?
