Passionforpattern has its first prediction for 2012. Smart, simple, beautifully-made trimmings will be big. Those designed by the stylist, Bruno Frisoni for Dedar are all of those things and our hunch is that they’ll go like a train. We’ve been here before, of course, in about 1988 to be precise, when frillier interior decorators would add a silk fringe to a client’s chihuahua if it stood still for more than thirty seconds. In 2012 it will be different; the emphasis will be on adding definition to curtains and upholstery rather than gilding the lily with a 20 centimetre bullion fringe. And for those on a budget, the new breed of simple trimmings will offer an opportunity to add a touch of tailored smartness to a modestly-priced fabric. Either way, it’s a fab look, perfectly in tune with the times.
