Fringe, tassels, and more: how to add this trend to your home

What do flapper dresses, a fair number of festival outfits, and cowboys have in common with high fashion and interior design?

A fringe (or multiple), of course. They’re a must-have in plenty of styles, were huge in fashion in 2022 – and now that’s translating into our homes, where these designs are increasingly gaining popularity, too.

But don’t worry – I may have mentioned cowboys in the intro, but that’s not the look we’ll be going for at all.

Instead, it’s all about adding layers and personality to your rooms. A fringe is a versatile addition to furniture and décor – from glamorous 1920s designs to cosy tassels and natural styles.

Want to bring it into your home? We’ve got some solutions right here.

Lampshades also make for a good, versatile addition. The bonus? You can use them in every room – just make sure you keep to the safety zones if you want to use a lamp in your bathroom.
