We know the tufted look in furniture isn’t exactly brand new – in fact, the classic tufted leather Chesterfield sofa has been around pretty much forever – but a recent trip to North Carolina’s High Point Market shows, without a doubt, that the style is undergoing a modern resurgence, and the look is luxurious and sexy.
The look is showing up in unexpected materials, colors and materials: for instance, Decca Home used tufted metal as accent on a new furniture collection, and Stanley Furniture, Ambella Home,
Burton James, and Pearson Furniture (among many others) all had exciting new takes on tufting for their chairs and sofas.
Of course, the tufted look isn’t limited to furniture. York Wallcoverings offers a Tufted Fabric raised-print pattern that adds that same decadent, fun, textured look to a statement wall. It’s dramatic, sure, but as High Point showed, we’re all looking for a bit of drama in our designs!
What do you think of the tufted look?
