MA­TE­RI­ALS: En­gi­neered and na­turei­den­ti­cal ver­sions of the al­ready-pop­u­lar fin­ishes, like stone and Car­rara mar­ble, will be prom­i­nent this year. Nat­u­ral may not al­ways be the best in some cases where prac­ti­cal­ity is needed. 2017 will also be the year of tex­ture-rich ma­te­ri­als. Ac­cord­ing to the DCP, the Worth Global Style Net­work re­ports that “a key trend is the use of stone with a play of tex­ture in terms of sur­faces, where rough tran­si­tions to pol­ished, re­fined met­als.”

Up­date an ex­ist­ing couch us­ing pil­lows with pro­nounced pleats, tucks, and flounces. In the same way, go for table­top items with faux fin­ishes if pur­chas­ing a ta­ble in mar­ble, real wood, or leather is out of the ques­tion.

Jux­ta­pos­ing mar­ble with wood is a time­less tale of warm-meets-cool. Throw in a small, shiny item for a fun ac­cent.
