The Best Fringe Pillows + Why Fringe Rules

The comeback of fringe is exactly what we need this season and hopefully far beyond. Festive, fun and fabulous: from 1920s flappers to the halls of New York Fashion Week!

This cascading trend has a rich history that can be traced back to 3000 BCE. Born into the fashion world of ancient Mesopotamia, it became intrinsic to the cultural trend that adorned skirts and shawls for much of civilization. Despite this trend originating from ancient times, it didn't stop there and can still be seen in the modern era of fashion and home decor. This unique embellishment has a history of disappearing and re-emerging. It reappeared in the Golden Age and continued to dominate for decades after.

The current revival of fringe is not surprising and we welcome it back into the fashion and home decor landscape. It's moved beyond the halls of New York Fashion Week and into the central focus of home fashion trends. This fun tassel detailing has taken home décor by storm, from fringe walls to intriguing tablecloths. Fringe designs are adaptable, dynamic, and aesthetically pleasing, making them a popular and archetypical go-to for many household themes.

Throw pillows contribute to the overall personality and theme of a room and are a great way to transform a living space with this simple yet effective trend.
