Trends from Las Vegas Market
Many of us might know cane furniture to be “that piece of furniture in our grandparents house". It has been around forever and was popularly used in mid century modern dining chairs. Now it is taking on a fresh spin and making a comeback in all forms. At market we saw it used on just about everything. And we mean everything! From chairs, desks, sideboards, baskets, headboards and all the way to mirrors. The aesthetically pleasing light weave adds texture and brings a sense of casualness to traditional pieces, making it a great addition in just about any form.
We’ve all done it, gravitated towards neutral pieces with the thought that you can add color in smaller amounts where you want later on. But after leaving market, we are definitely ready to break out of the neutral box. With so many beautifully saturated colors on the market, we are all about rocking bolder and more vibrant colors in large furniture items (and accessories) as well. Especially in accent chairs! The colors we spotted the most of were deep greens, merlots and mustards. We even noticed blush with a new twist in the form of rose gold and terracotta. Not to mention, all of the colors are great fall hues, perfect for the upcoming season.
Large Scale Art
Just when we thought we couldn’t be any more obsessed with art as a home statement piece, we went to Las Vegas Market. Artwork has always been one of our favorite focal points in a home, and after being at market we are loving the attention to large scale versions of it. From photography to abstract art we saw a lot more statement pieces with the mentality that less is more. They fill spaces and immediately draw the eye in. That being said, gallery walls may be taking a step back with larger art making a move.
Another trend we took note of was the amount of pieces we saw in a bleached wood finish! We noticed a lot of items that were once only available in black all now have a bleached wood option. It tends to give an effortless laid back feel and pairs well with just about any color (including black). Since it is so versatile, it makes for the perfect finish on an accent table or to mix in with an existing dining room set.
