Modernism is now synonymous with the ergonomics of the way we live today – but is modern furniture a lasting investment?
Hollywood has always been a huge influence on the fashion scene. Today, television has just as much of an impact on that scene. What we’re seeing now, is the well-produced, period-piece television series showcasing the stunning fashions of yesteryear in glorious high definition. Men’s fashions include aristocratic plaids and checks, white collared shirts and bright colors. Women’s fashions include styles from the 20’s and 30’s and don’t be surprised if you’re captivated by the many fabulous furs, so glamorous they defy political disapproval.
Why is fur back on the runway, quite without shame? Perhaps it never really went away; perhaps designers are re-evaluating what products are truly sustainable. In any case, fur is back big time for Fall and Winter 2012-13 and the fashions are stunning.
Lurex is one of the Hottest Fashion Trends for the Fall Season with sparkling knits and shimmering silk-like fabrics. Tailored from alluring Lurex, fabrics in gemstone colors are illuminating the fashion runways and trendy boutiques.
If you are a born collector with a penchant for vintage items, you might be looking for a new investment. Perhaps you are not ready to splurge on high-priced antiques, or maybe you simply do not have the physical space to make antique furniture collecting a viable hobby.
I run into so many people who have just inherited their parents’ antique and vintage furniture. The sudden windfall often turns into the daunting prospect of having to incorporate the old with the new. Can fine old furniture work within a more modern environment? Yes it can if you know how to do it right.
