At Chestnut Hall, between Christmas and New Years we’re counting down the days to a fresh new year and counting our blessings in 2011. As we close up a festive Holiday season, we think of ways to progress in the New Year and bring fresh style and enjoyment to your home. Year to year, our philosophy remains that Home should be the most comfortable place a person goes to, while stimulating, changing with, and reflecting the lives lived within. As your home adapts to your life in 2012, here are 5 style trends we’re excited to countdown in our showroom this year!
5. For those of us who went completely clean and serene with neutrals, you may want to add a little spike back to the punch with color. Hot colors like fuschia, citrine, aquamarine, persimmon, and purple brought in with accents are adding freshness to these calm spaces.
4. Lucky for Memphis, a traditionally Traditional market, style is reflecting a lot of classics this year. We’re seeing the Chesterfield sofa popular again and flanked by its old friends the Wing Back chairs. Newness is added to these pieces with modernized lines, less likely lighter fabrics and uses in more casual spaces.
3. Man up. Menswear, particularly English, is on the rise and it fits right in with Traditional design. Loads of new patterns are available in houndstooth, plaids, pinstripes, and tweeds. Available in all colorways, including feminine colors too!, heavier textures are adding extra interest to these classics in wool, flannel, suedes and embossed leathers.
2. Escape to somewhere exotic. Global patterns such as ikats and suzani prints were all over Fall Market included in Traditional settings as well. We enjoyed the spice these unconventional patterns and colors brought to the table.
1. Our favorite trend is nothing new and is here to stay. However, it’s lately fresh on all our minds. American Made is the best way to buy great quality. Most of our highest quality vendors manufacture casegoods and upholstery right here in the United States. We enjoy passing along to you not only fine hand-craftsmanship at affordable prices, but customer service that can only be provided with direct relationships with manufacturers we have come to know personally. Come see what’s Made in America for Chestnut Hall!
Happy New Year!
