Welcome to Friday Fever, your weekly guide to whats hot right now and the future pieces that are sure to make waves in the interior world.
This spring saw the start of a new and frankly amusing interior trend, the Fringe! Now I LOVE a fringe of the coiffured variety, be it a blunt eye grazing bang in reference to Anna Karina, long or side swept like Brigitte Bardot's or in the form of a "gringe" (grown out fringe) a la Alexa Chung, I'm all for them and pleasingly they are making a comeback this autumn... However fringing on interiors, wasn't that a 1970's relic just like vinyl jumpsuits and patchwork peasant skirts that we all would rather forget?
Well it seems not as all the major interior stockists and highstreet suppliers are going bonkers for all things fringe. I have tried earnestly not to be seduced by this particular interior whimsy, but gave up about a month ago when I opened my heart (and wallet) to Fringe Fever and took a big dive in. Behold, my first and far from last fringed interior purchase The Fela Tasseled Chandelier
I ummed and aahhed over this fitting for a good two weeks, I thought it was too ostentatious, too kitsch and mainly too big for its designated home; my office, but I was pleasantly surprised once I got it home and up. The listing states the colour of the chandelier is grey, however it is most certainly not. This shade of grey is actually more of a peaty brown, which in my black office when the sun goes down it almost disappears with the fading light into the ceiling, so much so that trying to get a decent pictire of the chandelier up is proving more difficult than me trying to have a successful fringed haircut.( I'm an original curly haired lass and try as I might, a fringe is sadly a no go for me) but do keep your eyes peeled on my insta stories where this light fitting will play quite a prominent feature over the next few weeks; you can find me over at @interiorfever.
If you too are feeling the fringe and want in on the action, these are what I feel are the best picks the season. Go on, add a little frivolity into your decor, if it was all serious we would all be very bored of our spaces very quickly. And lets face it, its much less of a commitment fringing your furniture than the hair on your head.
Will you be adding some fringing into your decor? Or will you throw caution to the wind and risk your hair all in the name of fashion? Let me know in the comments.
