If you want to get a peek into the interior design trends of the future, pick up your favorite fashion magazine. The looks designers show during the acclaimed New York Fashion Week often make their way from the runway to your home.
We saw several trends emerge for Spring 2014. Designers were showing black and white, geometric and graphic prints, subtle details and flowing lines. Sometimes subtle and sometimes not, you can find these influences in home décor. Take a look at some of the fashion-forward furniture available at Art Van Furniture, and the runway looks they resemble.
Ralph Lauren channeled the ‘60s for his Spring collection, sending shifts, patent leather and black-and-white prints down the runway. The look was unexpected from the man who defines classic American style. Our Jazz Accent Chair matches the feel. With its sleek silhouette, the geometric pattern in black gives the chair a tailored but not too serious feel.
Czar by Cesar Galindo created a collection that was described as sporty elegance, with crisp bright colors and bold, flowing prints. Our Thread & Feather Abbey Accent Chair offers a similar look. In deep blue genuine leather, its uniquely shaped back has deep tufting detail, which shows off the blue and teal accent pillow.
Supima is America’s luxury cotton brand. Since 2008, the company has held its annual Supima Design Competition to give exposure to emerging talent. While he didn’t win, we love the looks created by Will Riddle of Kent State University. In deep purple and black, the color combination is rich and dramatic. The same can be said for our Thread & Feather Henderson chair. Its deep purple velvet fabric is wrapped in a wood trim that frames it in sophistication.
The Zimmerman collection was filled with a light palette of seasonal pastels, creamy whites, ivories and metallic. Prints included floral, stripes and checks, such as this garment in a subtle houndstooth. The Style Collection Mila accent chair is an excellent example of a subtle piece of furniture that adds a crisp detail to a room. With its curved lines and small-scaled houndstooth pattern in grey and tan, it is an example of simplicity and effortless style.
The theme of the Richard Chai collection was “soft geometry.” With stripes and shapes in tropical colors, the look was bold and eye catching. Our Thread & Feather Afton Chair also makes its presence known. Its upholstery features a bold pattern of gray and coral, and its geometric-inspired straight lines are set off by its dark wood trim.
