Through the Looking Glass: 10 New Trends for Fall 2016


Through the Looking Glass: 10 New Trends for Fall 2016

September 19, 2016

After a summer spent traveling (collectively, we visited Copenhagen, London, Lisbon, Paris, Dublin, Marfa, and more), we’re back at our desks sorting through our finds. Here are 10 design trends currently on our radar for fall:

1. Stained Glass

Above: Is stained glass making a comeback? We think so; here’s an example we spotted at Native Bio Bistro in Antwerp (photo via Native).

2. The “It” Chair

Above: Faye Toogood may have designed the Spade Chair in 2012, but lately we’ve been spotting it in stylish interiors everywhere, including The New Road Residence in London (the Spade Chair in ash is available at Garde in Los Angeles for $1,295).

3. Flatware as Art

Above: Jewelry for the table: We’ve been noticing a new wave of artisanal flatware designs emerging, such as this Rhodonite stone and steel set from Baciocchi Associati for Nilufar (also see 10 Easy Pieces: New Artisan Flatware Designs).

4. DIY Faucets Made from Plumbing Parts

Above: The handmade faucet look is everywhere; we spotted this one in a project by London architect Simon Astridge (stay tuned; later this week we’ll be posting on five off-the-rack industrial-looking faucets).

5. Carnations

6. Brown Furniture

Above: It’s an interior design adage that every room should have a touch of red. Our new mantra? Every room should have a piece of what designers call “brown furniture,” unfashionable, dated pieces that counteract perfection in on-trend rooms. Shown here, a clean-lined space by Studio Oink humanized by the addition of a traditional chest of drawers (see the whole project at Earthly and Ethereal: An Apartment Makeover by Studio Oink).

7. Fringe

Above: When I browsed the North Modern show in Copenhagen in August, it seemed fringe was on everything; rugs, pillows, throws. Then, in London, I spotted fringed rugs at Habitat and Conran and several other housewares mainstays. Shown here: the Raw Rug from Hay in Copenhagen is available in anthracite, gray, and midnight blue.

8. Handblown Glass for Everyday Use

Above: Another trend spotted at North Modern in Copenhagen: handmade everyday glassware (we especially like pieces from Rick Gerner).

9. Ceramic Lighting

Above: We’re noticing sculptural handmade pottery table lamps everywhere (we’ll be posting on this trend soon). Show here, a trio of lamps by LA potter Carmen D’Apollonio.

10. Layered Textures
