This season, there is a focus on rustic and the new soft industrial. As temperatures drop, shearling is the new fur, featured in gift items such as pillows and throws.

Details and texture will play a big role in textiles, adding dimension through pleating and frayed edges. With the rise of the open floor plan, basic countertop items become more decorative, including mixed material cutting boards in marble and wood. The new soft industrial trend represents a movement toward simple finishes and clean patterns.

Inspired by times past, this trend represents the contemporary formal – rich, old world fabrics and patterns with a modern twist. Velvet will be a major fabric for fall 2016, and matte gold will be one of the season’s hottest colors.

Gold will be especially popular in the serving tray, which is both functional and fashionable, a perfect gift for the holidays. Pattern mixing in both bedding and tabletop will be key to provide visual interest.

The 1970s take center stage with retro florals and prints, illustrating the whimsical spirit of the decade. Winter checks and plaids will be a key pattern in throws and pillows for the season.

To add a unique touch to the tablescape, flatware will boast new metal finishes, patterned handles and color, while dinnerware will feature color and quirky icons. Copper will play a role in food prep – in brushed or polished finishes and either hammered or smooth.
