This season, if it’s not fringed it’s not worth taking about. We are seeing it everywhere and all secretly love it.
This trend crosses over from playful to sophisticated very easily. Fringed cushions and wall hangings bring a statement to any room and can be playful with colour and texture. You also have chandeliers and table lamps oozing style with touches of gold and brass.
