“We are yearning to see the human hand in our home furnishings as a backlash to our technology-centric lives. Textured surfaces, hand-stitched details, nubby textiles and manipulated fibers are replacing sleek, smooth, impersonal finishes. From unique vintage fabrics, hand-cut leather, painted marbling, hand knotting and overscaled passementerie, we are craving a tactile experience, more rough-hewn, but still fitting in our eclectic modern mix.”

“For almost two decades, I have watched my design clients move from saturated color — the earth tones and whimsical accent walls — to a recent trend that I call neutral shades of gray. For this era, the shades of gray allow less focus on the walls, while the focus on individualism in design returns — with artwork, furnishings and decor details emphasized.”

Brass Beauty

Some see brass as a finish. Designer Jeffrey Johnson sees it as a striking accent, one that gets prettier with age.

“Brass has always been around for centuries; however, I see the trend applied to the variations of brass finishes that have become more prevalent and substantial when shown on furniture and accessories as an accent for the base, hardware and caps. The tarnishing of the brass can take years. As a long-term artistic endeavor, natural aging will give you the effect you want for years to come.”
