It’s no secret that lifestyle trends follow the economy. In times of plenty, we see new! and exciting! designs and crazy-ass food creations. Similarly, when the economy slows down, we see a resurgence of old-style “comfort” items, both for the home and for the table.
I can only guess that is why I’m seeing chenille just about everywhere. So far it’s been mostly vintage bedspreads hitting the design blogs around the world. Can it be long before textile designers start rethinking chenille-based designs and putting a new spin on them?
I sure hope not!
