Sculptural Influences


With this trend, all styles are fair game. From modern to vintage, anything that incorporates lines and thin figures will create a sense of unbalance that still looks chic.

Clean Traditional Lines


Match a tough leather couch with some colorful, textured throws and you’ve got this trend down in a nutshell. Of course, extra decorative pieces (like a faux fur throw) are always encouraged as well.
