Design Trends: Be Bold
Even a single chair makes a strong statement, whether it’s expressed by form or fabric. A simple armchair with antique brass casters shouts “look at me” when finished with Lee Industries’ Salem red upholstery (available at Peach Tree Designs, Naples, $1,375).
Walls That Wow
Popular Palm Springs blue meets Pantone’s “it” color, Tangerine Tango, in swirls of florals created by wallcovering artist Kenneth James for Brewster Home Fashion’s Suzani collection. The paper plays nicely with yellow-infused green, curry yellow and purples. The collection, priced from $138 per roll, is available at Wallpaper World, Fort Myers.
Dish out dessert or appetizers on these teal and 24-karat gold plates—a conversation unto themselves. L’Objet collaborated with Fortuny to create a colorful collection of tumblers, dessert and canapé plates inspired by the artisans of Venice. Also available in red, orange or green and several graphic patterns, a set of four dessert plates is $250 at Gattle’s, Naples.
Green with Envy
A classic chest of drawers is reinvented when finished in a fresh of-the-moment shade and accented with Greek key hardware and a marble top. Priced at $9,973.60 and available through KVS Interior Design, Bonita Springs.
Naples artist/designer Chad Jensen channeled his Danish heritage to create the Scandinavian-inspired “Danska,” a swoon-worthy and sculptural dining room grouping featuring hand-stained deep chocolate mahogany and sapele woods, leather and MDF. Showcased at a number of international art fairs throughout Florida, including two in Naples, the Danska retails for $30,000 and is available through Avant Gallery, Miami.
