Back in 2007 when we hosted an event at our store titled Fashion Drives Home I did some research on the coming trends in women’s fashion and home furnishings. It is fun to look back at it today and see that yes, many of those predictions came to be:

Glitter, bling everywhere, traditional fabrics enhanced with metallic fibers
Green Movement or eco Chic
Reclaimed and recycled wood
Smudge Gray, orange, copper
We still are on the look out for new trends. One we found for 2013 is wrapped furniture. The textured effect is wonderful whether its faux shagreen, linen, printed or not, leather, or raffia. Here is some of the wrapped furniture you can find at Stange’s of Waupaca.

Hickory Chair has a wonderful custom program where you can pick a fabric and finish. This is one they show in their catalog but you can do whatever you want. Check out the website and have some fun playing with different combinations.
You can change the fabric but also customize a wall by stacking the pieces – now how fun is that!
Play with some of the fabrics and wood finishes like I did. Just click on the various fabrics shown for a whole different look.

Check out the faux shagreen chest from Stanley.
A nest of tables also uses the faux shagreen.
