Now Trending...

It may have been a few weeks since we have returned from Highpoint Market, but we have not forgotten the fabulous, new trends. All of us here at First Fruit are very excited to let you all in on the current trends heading our way! Many of you have seen these trends in you homes, parents' homes, and even grandparents' homes. BEWARE! They're back and we cannot be more excited to implement them into design. Design--like life--is ever-evolving. So, open you minds and embrace the sophistication and richness!




Pictured in this Schumacher add, you can see the blend of linens showing menswear prints, wools, and animal prints. Fur/animal prints are a great way to add a little texture to a room, whether it is a covered ottoman, pillow, or even going exotic with a wallpaper. Speaking of wallpaper... notice the subtle print on the walls. Wallpaper is back-in-action and FABULOUS. We have picked up new lines and cannot wait to show you your endless options for the 1/2 bath or dining room that 'needs something'.




Pictured is the new, fabric line we have picked up--Osborne & Little. O&L brings smaller lines to the table as well, such as: Nina Campbell, Lorca, Phillip Jefferies LTD., and Designers Guild. These are all higher-end lines, yet come in larger widths (an English width is larger than an American 54"width fabric), and in most cases justifies the end price. But, back to market trends!... VELVET, VELVET, VELVETS!!! Solid and printed velvets are huge! If you cannot stand to repeat this trend, again, just try a throw pillow at first. Trust us, you'll fall back into love with this rich look. We could not find a showroom without seeing velvets, and could not be more excited!





This picture encompasses many of the big trends directly from the C.R. Laine showroom. We bring you rug ottomans! Not only will you see rug ottomans, but rug pillows have been ordered, too. These are a great way to incorporate texture and/or a print into any room. They are being used in both formal and casual settings. Next, the cluster of prints are a must. Whether they're matching or an assortment... use them! The metallic linens are to be expected on furniture, as well as accent pillows. Any fabrics with a sheen and/or texture are coming your way faster than Santa can say "HO HO HO"!




Caracole is another line we have picked up this market! We love the simplicity and design of their furniture. They are clean without being too modern and have a refined, rustic style (which we LOVE). Layering an animal print rug on top of another, brings a quirky, yet 'designed' look to your room.




Once again, we come back to C. R. Laine trends for Fall/Winter. Neutrals are still alive and kicking. This soft palette is to-die-for! Don't you just want to cuddle up in this room?! Mixing side pieces and woods are a necessity in design. With neutral palettes such as this picture, it's always good to have one piece within the room that brings some richness, such as the coffee table.



Ladies and Gentlemen, as we said, brace yourself. Change is on the horizon! The great thing about all the 'new', is how easily it can be

 incorporated into your existing homes. Everything comes back around and we cannot wait for everyone to see how easy it will be to update.


Happy Everything,

Ashley and the Girls at First Fruit Collection
