Finding the Fashion Forward

New looks and emerging styles empower consumers to express their individuality

In furniture as in couture, emerging styles are the perfect medium for self-expression. At any price point, you’ll find consumers shopping for something new and daring, something you won’t see in the house next door. At Market, you’ll find fashion-forward showrooms filled with bold, glam, and unexpected creations that take design in the distinctive directions these consumers want to go.

Fashion designers to the stars, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, Badgley Mischka Home, bring their flair for red carpet glamour into the home. Pieces such as their Casablanca Room Screen, Astaire Bar Cart, and Casablanca Accent Chair create an air of sophistication with artful forms and sumptuous finishes. “We don’t try to be everything to everybody,” says Badgley. “Our customer is someone who is unafraid of glamour. They buy into the glamour of old Hollywood and appreciate the details and finishes.”

Individuality is always on tap at Phillips Collection. Elevating the role of wall art, its Fashion Girl Faces is a charming montage of fun expressions. One version is finished in black and gold leaf, but for those who want to play with a different palette, another is finished in white and silver. In both, the look is anything but common, and light years away from understated.

Melding organic shapes with the warm luxe of gold, the Phillips Collection Root Console Table is both art and artifact. A reflection of today’s most nouveau style directions, it is effortlessly glamorous, infinitely usable and undeniably notable.

No longer defined by a price point, the new look of luxury comes in many flavors. At DwellStudio by Global Views, the Bianca Coffee Table features a monochrome mosaic inlay that boasts 60s-inspired colorblocking. It creates a striking focal point as its tiled surface appears to float atop a delicate, gold-leafed metal base.

A study in contrast, this tall Pleated Cabinet from Global Views was inspired by a vintage bronze piece. Detailed cast-aluminum door pulls stand out against a black, textured body, creating a dynamic and dramatic presentation. The metal-clad base lightens the visual heft of this large piece while inside, a mirrored back adds to its allure.

Furniture as expression gains new significance as individual consumers surround themselves with looks that convey their personal point of view. Whether they’re new mixes of materials, striking graphics, or unexpected blends of organic and artful forms, emerging styles are the ultimate couture for the home. Throughout Market, showrooms specializing in the unique and fashion forward – such as Badgley Mischka Home, Global Views and Phillips Collection – can be seen pushing the edge of inspiration.
