After a decade of reveling in sleek midcentury lines, design sensibility has stepped into a fresh era: The 1980s. From curved silhouettes to mauve tones, everything '80s is new again. One of our favorite styles that's made a comeback: fringe. The once-audacious trend was prominent in the '80s, and now almost four decades later, it's back and better than ever. However, this time: it comes equipped with a modern-day twist.
It's time to wave goodbye to the days where this fringe trend was exclusively reserved for flapper dresses and layered haircuts: this time around, it's giving our home décor a much-needed facelift.
Drawing influence from fashion, we've noticed many home aficionados welcoming fringe-embellished lamps, ottomans, and even decked out armchairs with a fringe blanket.
Ideal for those looking to part ways with their minimalistic aesthetics of the past, the fringe trend breathes new life into any space, adding a hint of freshness and element of sexiness that was previously missing. And, if you're wondering whether or not the fringe trend is right for you?
These seven styles will make you a fringe trend believer — they'll uplift and upgrade your space in no time.
