A fringe benefit

All the fringe elements I am seeing lately are bringing me back to my wild child days.

A fringe benefit


All the fringe elements I am seeing lately are bringing me back to my wild child days.

I loved fringe: adornments of all kinds. Then the look became streamlined, clean lines reined supreme. The pendulum swings both ways. Everything tilts in the other direction again eventually. We are seeing these embellishments in a multitude of ways from fashion runways to home decor, in a multitude of materials. I do love a little embellishment!

The fringe benefit of this little decorative gem is ~ it can look rustic, classic, bohemian, southwestern. It's application and versatility make it dramatic, feminine, historic, or quirky. You know this means bullion is back as well. I love the classic look of the thick trim gracing the bottom of a sofa or club chair.

To keep the look modern and updated, coordinate it with well edited,contemporary pieces in an overall design plan or from looking like a fashion victim .

It's a movement and it's having its moment. Can the tassel and those tie backs be far behind?
