Fabulous Fringing - Style&Co mood board

Absolutely Fabulous Fringing!

When I heard that Fringing was going to be a Trend for this year – I must admit, I immediately decided that I was not going to be a fan.

Visions of old fashioned sofas with heavy bullion fringe skirts –  were definitely on par with crochet loo-roll covers in my mind.  However, after seeing a few tasteful tassels appearing in the interior magazines, I wanted to discover if this trend really did have some appeal.

Well, I had quite a hunt to find the fringing and not suprisingly there are more fringed lampshade and lighting than furniture.  But, I was quite amazed when I discovered the  Moooi Amami sofas by Lorenza Bozzoli.  I loved this new contemporary fringing !

The Contemporary fringe is long and delicate and maybe a bit too fancy for most people, but it was just crying out to be featured on a Style&Co mood board.  Ok, so it may be a bit of an OTT, a mood board with full on fringing – but I just wanted to have some fun!  If you are a real fringing tend-setter and want to give this a go – then probably just go for one piece – the sofa, the lights, or the mirror.

I do love the elegance of this furniture.  The long fringing with it’s graduated ombre  tones is beautiful.  The furniture is designed by Italian designer Lorenza Bozzoli and is available at 1stdibs

Other sources for fringed upholstery include Munna .  Where  you can find this layer fringe arm chair with matching sofa and Oliver Bonas  where you will be able to find the Josephine velvet chair.

There are some great fringed lamps around at the moment. The Ce fringed wall lamp looks so unique. It combines Bronze and Rayon to produce this wonderful flowing design.  Is it just me, or do you just want to run your hand through that gorgeous fringing?  Another great fringe creation are these of 1960’s Hans-Agnes Jakobsson pendants. All of these fringed lovlies I found at 1stdibs

I also wanted include this fabulous handmade Volta Chandelier Shade by Venessa Agyemang from Copper Dust. I discovered Vanessa at The London Design Festival. I was impressed by her colourful range of  patterned/fringed shades, which she is also able to customise for your requirements.


Venus Mirror

Yet again with mirrors, my best find was at 1stdibs  – the Venus GoldLeaf frame was a perfect match. Other fringed frames were found at Oliver Bonas.


Misty Rug

This rug called Misty from The RugCompany  echoes the indigo ombre design of the sofa fringing, with a soft pile in bamboo silk.

To carry on with the Ombre theme the wallpaper was a find on Etsy.

    Personally, I’m loving the fringe trend right now. I love how it adds movement to a room when someone brushes past or there’s a breeze. It catches the eye and as a tactile person, fringing is one of those elements that has me reaching out to touch.

    I think it’s a marmite thing, to be honest. When I first posted some pics from Milan design week in 2017 – everyone commented it was old-fashioned. Fast forward to M&O and my two highlights were the fringed pieces from Houtique and ibride. I think it’s all about timing.

      I know what you mean Mary. I did think I was going to hate it until I found there were some really elegant pieces around. I think it’s long fringing that makes it look contemporary.

    Who knew fringing on a mirror would look so good?! I’ve had my eye on a pink fringe lampshade for a while, makes such a nice feature in a room doesn’t it!

      I know Sam – it’s quite unusual to see it on a mirror. It’s quite a fun trend if you can find some pieces that you love.

    Always so inspirational Lin! Your fringing post is just so great! Saw the Munna chair at Decorex (along with a lot of fringing on the House of Hackney stand) and just fell in love. Bring on satin slippers and long satin robes….

    That sofa with the ombre fringe looks delicious. And even though I’ve seen many lamps with fringe, I didn’t know the trend also extended to mirrors!

    I must admit, I was a bit sceptical when I first heard was fringing was back too. However, when I properly saw the types of designs and styles available, I was won over. I love all the ideas you’ve picked out, you’ve certainly discovered some interesting designs.

      Thank you Rachel – yes the contemporary take on fringing is rather more elegant that I had imagined.

    Wow Lin!! I’m blown away!!! How on earth did you manage to make fringing look so damn amazing? I wrote about this trend back in February and vowed that I could not be won over by this hideous throwback trend! I was wrong!! This looks amazing. I especially love the Ce wall lamp.

      Thank you Stacey – I will check back on your blog! I did think fringing was an awful idea until I found the amazing sofa and realised that it could actually look really elegant.

    Wow wow wow I think I want it all! Specifically love the fringing details on the sofa and chairs. Think my cat would cause mayhem with them though! The mirrors are a cool idea too. Over from Littleowlblogs.wordpress.com

      Thank you Emma – I agree that your cat would love it if you bought a fun sofa to play with – so possibly not a great idea.
