The ‘cold shoulder’ trend may be taking women’s fashion by storm but look out home decor the ‘sexy back’ is charting a path of its own in upholstery. Perhaps it’s our open concept living that affords the opportunity to approach our furniture from different angles, or the design concept of floating our furniture in a room rather than having it pushed up against the walls, but the trend toward back detailing is coming on strong.
This isn’t necessarily just about using a different fabric on the front of a chair and another on the back. This is about stitching patterns, pleating, cut outs, and metal. This is about the ‘sexy back’ where the detail viewed from the back of the chair is the chair.
