This is the first trend post this year! If you have read my October trend post on decor8 about, this one is quite in line and belongs to the textile trends coming mainly from California. When you are reading this post, I am already attending the IMM, the international furniture show in Cologne just to be up-dated with the last interior trends. Stay tuned for my trend reports to come.
So there is a certain 70´s vibe but all reloaded and with a fresh approach. There is so much going on now what you can do with your walls and dip dying is still huge. After all the macramé and woven tapestries, thick cotton tassels are on raise now. We are not talking about fabric tassels but do observe a look that belongs to a more, let’s say bohemian feeling.

They are hand-dipped and made for wall hangings when they come as a garland but you can use them wherever you feel comfortable with. I took a silk tassel from Shanghai with me I am wearing at a tote bag, they look great at key chains , and I have seen them on necklaces and door knobs. I liked them too during the festive season on branches too.
What is great about this micro trend is that tassels are an easy DIY project, so if you are feeling crafty these pieces might inspire you to make your own tassel collection.
My favorite is picture #4. Which is yours?
