I know there was a whole discussion about chevron, and ikat to some extent, but I was wondering what you all see coming up as the new trends.....
And what you think of current trends, and how long they may last.
Like quatrefoil rugs...it seems they are everywhere now (I have some!) so does that mean they are getting too played out? I do like that they are a pattern without being too overwhelming, and they are a nice transition between modern and antique.
However, in terms of rugs at least, I think flat weaves and Kilims are what's next. With Turkish or Native American designs. I've seen a whole southwest and plains Indian design trend in clothes, jewelry, and even tattoos. Native American tattoos are all the rage across instagram right now, where many tattoo artists post their work daily. And i noticed that west elm partnered with an Native American organization to put out some rug designs.
One nice thing about Kilims is that they tend to have a whole bunch of colors in them. Maybe that will lead towards rooms that use more color, rather than being the often standard 3 color rooms we see now (and I totally do this in tons of my rooms)
I guess I also see a trend away from turquoise and teal, but going towards indigo and navy instead. What color trends do you guys see or predict?
And what do you think will happen to the whole restoration hardware pottery barn grey wood and linen look that has been so in?
