Fringe benefits

The other day one of my friends sent me a picture of a chair she’d bought for her new office. “Should I add a fringe?” she said

Hell yes! Fringes were everywhere at Milan and are sure to be appearing in any self respecting design addicts abode any time soon.

My only requirement for fringing is that it be fine and silky, none of your twisted cord type fringing if you don’t mind, reminiscent of Auntie June’s bedroom chair from the 1950’s. We’re talking chic deco inspired fringing of the sort seen swinging from silent star, Louise Brooke’s hem line.

I am stunned by the beauty of these boudoir stools by Milan based furniture designer Lorrenzo Bozzoli. I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite so beautiful in a glam rock style way since I first clapped eyes on David Bowie in his Ziggy incarnation!

This fringed mirror is also pretty spectacular by Ben & Aja Blanc but as I’ve not been able to find a UK stockist, I’ve included this fringed mirror by Oliver Bonas which is reduced in the sale, so if you’re quick you might snaffle it?

I love the colour and the triple fringing of this sofa which is just unbelievably Hollywood glamour, you can almost imagine Jean Harlow reclining on it?

If you want less of a statement piece and something smaller to add to your current furniture collection, this china blue chair is beautiful?

If the Lorrenzo Bozzoli stool is too much of a statement piece but you love the fringing idea, how about this more modest version by Bloomingville?

Online British lighting company Beauvamp make beautiful bespoke fringed lighting. Check out their online gallery for pendant and lamp shades in various colours or custom order your own colours and finish.

Oliver Bonas currently sell this pretty coral and brass Nappa table lamp £130

Or of course you can do a DIY version like my friend and add your own fringing to anything?
