norwalk furniture has one of the best fabric selections in their upholstery line and they do quite a bit of research to make sure they are on the money with the latest trends. recently norwalk identified some great style trends for their fabric launch for 2013 and as i mentioned in my last blog they have categorized them into five style trends. in the post i’d like to take a look at the gem palace trend and add some of our own staff ideas of modern furniture and furnishings that capture the essence.
gem palace: of course we at modmood love the gem palace look and think it definitely has a place in modern design. if you have any doubt take a look at this photo of the miller house, in columbus indiana. the seating pit with pillows surely is reminiscent don’t you think?
gem palace is characterized by exuberant colors and mixed patterns. fabric colors feature deep amethyst, peridot and pearl hues. have you heard of blue-cast berry tones? well you have now and norwalk says you also find these tones not only in home fashion but on the runways of milan, paris and new york. norwalk says their gem palace collection of fabrics “have a reflective and lustrous quality emulative of their rajasthani inspiration”.
the fabrics of the gem palace style trend are lively and vibrant with a mix of patterns. reflective, and lustrous qualities, emulative of their rajasthani inspiration also are seen throughout. look for elegant references to traditional indian paisley, ikat and silk patterns. add some effervescence to your home with gem palace style!
