Bring on the Fringe in Home Decor

By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine

The 1970s are taking on a bigger influence in home decor lately. And the latest trend is definitely a nod to that era: Fringe and tassels in home accessories.

Fringe and tassels are popping up in some unexpected places, from fringed lighting fixtures to fringe-trimmed mirrors, or a velvet sofa with fringe edging along the bottom.

According to Pinterest, searches for “fringe” pillows have climbed more than THREE hundred percent this year. So, this is definitely a hot trend.

The fringe trend is all part of this larger movement of adding more texture into home decor. Like the popularity of this “hairy chair” we recently blogged about, a big hair trend is definitely growing in home decor at the moment.
