A few weeks ago the 2011 Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishing Market took place at the AmericasMart in downtown Atlanta. The trade show drew in interior design professionals from all over searching for this year’s trends in home furnishings. The overarching design trends for furniture, fabrics and accessories emerged as they always do and they include hand-made items and those with Old World finishes.
Industry experts believe that the trend of hand crafted furnishings come from the takeover and over availability of increasingly modern decor. Handmade furniture and accessories have the ability to warm up a room with a familiar texture.The Old World furnishings making their way onto the scene will be reminiscent of the classic style found throughout European homes. Aged leather and antique finishes will be popular in throughout the trend, but in a more streamlined design.
