{make a statement}

The other day I stopped by Hirshfield’s Design Studio to talk trends with Kathy Basil. Working at the Design Studio, Kathy says she sees new trends pop up about every six months. Currently, Kathy said the design trend is all about making a statement.

“It’s about finding that one piece of furniture that makes you happy and also leaves a strong impression on anyone who enters your house. Statement pieces are all about being one-of-a-kind with a unique story to tell.”

Here are some of Kathy’s favorite statement pieces from Hirshfield’s Design Studio.

Anji Mountain Rug

This rug is all about texture! It’s durable, yet soft to the touch, and adds a natural look to any room.

Authentic Suzanis

These Authentic Suzanis from India are hand-made and one-of-a-kind. Use them as window coverings, a wall hanging or a throw.

Mosaic Glass Lamps

These shimmery glass lamps add a touch of glam.

Petrified Wood Table

You can search all day long and never find two petrified wood tables that look the same. The pattern of the wood is naturally unique, making each one a one-of-a-kind find.

Kathy cautions not to go overboard with your statement pieces. You want to find that one piece you absolutely love, and then thoughtfully design around it so that your statement piece is the focal point.
