Castellano Beltrame’s range of tradition-rich passementerie
With a focus on fine details, Castellano Beltrame’s range of tradition-rich passementerie, which includes tassels, tiebacks, tassel fringes, braids, cords, bullions, ruches and rosettes, is all about detail and colour.
“Whether a city apartment, a beach house, a country property, or a traditional home, the trimmings add a touch of magic and exuberance,” says the company.
Far from dated, fringes, specifically, are back in a sleek, sophisticated way this year.
It’s also one of the easiest ways to customise items for a unique look. As interior designer Timothy Corrigan notes: “People want more and more things to feel custom and unique, not like they will see it at the neighbour‘s house. Fringe is one of the easiest ways to take a simple lampshade, pillow, whatever it is, and make it uniquely your own.”
So, whether you prefer fine, silky fringes, brushed fringes, decorative fringes such as the Aquila Round Disc Tassel Fringe or more heavily textured ones such as those from the Bullion fringe range, here, Castellano Beltrame shares how to incorporate the classic fringe into a contemporary decor scheme.
May you may think lights with fringes are for Boho or retro schemes only, there are actually many designs that incorporate fringing in a modern way and that can work equally well in a contemporary or classic interior. For a fresh take, opt for pendant or chandelier designs with fringes instead of lamps and floor lamps.
Fringes offer the perfect final touch to sofas, stools and chairs. Paired with velvet upholstery, the trimming can add a luxe, playful touch to any decor scheme. To pull this look off, opt for a limited palette and accentuate it with brass, copper or gold accents.
From wallhangings to scatter cushions, rugs and blankets, colourful fringing on smalls can be used to inject some colour, texture and all-around fun into otherwise minimalist interior schemes.
