Paris Deco Off is an annual event where the world’s most distinguished wallpaper and fabric showrooms exhibit their newest collections. (Find out more here!) We hit the fabric houses with a vengeance, attempting to see absolutely everything and everyone that was new and exciting for the Spring collections. Since we're known for our ability to incorporate global patterns and styles in our interiors, we naturally gravitated towards the abundance of Indian, Moorish and Chinese influences showcased in this years collections at Paris Deco Off. Birds, animals, and Chinese porcelain patterns were seen everywhere, from fabrics, to wallpapers, to painted furniture. Nowhere was this global influence trend more beautifully executed than in Pierre Frey’s new Maoming collection. Inspired by travels in the Guizhou Province of China, the line evokes the artistry, craftsmanship and know-how of the Miao women. The collection’s colorful ikats, batiks and geometrical embroideries and corresponding wallpapers and rugs, are a true work of art! It was hard to not leave with one of every single pattern. You'll be sure (as per usual) to see a lot of these influences in our upcoming projects! Thanks for reading, and we will see you next week for more inspiration and design.

Seen in upholstery fabrics, wall coverings, accessories, and even paint color, this feminine, soft, and yet luscious tone; gives us all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings. Flora and fauna: Going beyond the animal print, which has been a ubiquitous trend for many years, animals invade the interior design world in full force in other fun and unexpected shapes and forms: from playful taxidermy to bunny-shaped lamps and illustrations on tableware, fabrics, and wallcovering, there's an abundance of options for those wanting to incorporate fauna in their interiors. (We prefer our taxidermy of the faux variety....but real was seen as well!) Fringe binge: A constant on SS16 fashion runways from Paris to New York, the trend has officially cast its spell on interior designers as well. Fringes are cleverly employed to upholstery pieces, chairs, and even mirrors in ways we've never seen before to suit the current preference. We...
