Global looks were rampant on the fashion runways this spring from Chanel to Valentino. These fashion powerhouses got behind this theme that speaks volumes of our love for globe trekking and embracing our world and it’s multitude of cultures. Prints and textures steeped in culture from Africa, India, Turkey and Peru had the largest influence on these tribal looks that stole our hearts. With fashion and home interiors being naturally intertwined; we see the strong influence of these ethnic trends popping up in furniture, rugs and fabrics for the home.
The tribal chic trend can be achieved in simply adding a rug and a few throw pillows for a hint of the native look to satisfy the free-spirited wanderlust in you. We love the Killim rug in this minimalist living room, and the throw over the Scandinavian chair to mix mid-century with ethnic influences.
Adorning a sofa or bench with throw pillows in Aztec or Turkish prints build rich layers of color and design. The Jigsaw Design Team like adding elements of surprise to a room like this elegant French living space with molding, chandelier, and white sofas. A touch of ethnic in the pillows and throw add a bit of warmth and a timeless appeal to the room.
Ikat prints for curtains, pillows and even furniture aren’t just for the flower-child anymore. Even in a refined setting, the ikat print can make itself easily at home. As seen in the images below the ikat printed curtains are bold, yet subtle in color so the eye is drawn to the interest in the pattern but not distracting from the rest of the room.
The exotic gypsy bedroom is nothing less than sexy and inviting. Layering is the key in this ethnic bedroom style; accent pillows and duvets finished off with a kilim rug and your tribal bedroom will be intoxicating. Even a modern or mid-century bedroom can attain this global vibe while still making sense. An all-white room with modern fixture has a fresh updated approach with the spirit of tribal in this gorgeous room in the following image.
This fun fresh trend is loved for its rich texture and colors, but more importantly for it’s global roots.
