91 Loves… fringing, tassels and pom poms

Save & share

Adding a simple trim to a curtain, cushion or throw can totally transform an otherwise bland item, plus they are super cheap and easy to apply OR you can make your own! We’ve been inspired by the fringed plant pots created by 91 stylist Laura Sawyer, which featured in the S/S issue…. such a simple idea for jazzing up plain pots and adding colour to your plant display.

And how chic is the fringing hanging from this wooden chair? On closer inspection I think it is simply the edging of a blanket, but hey, what an easy way to add interest!

Fringed garlands are not just for parties either – adorn your living space with paper or fabric versions for all year round decoration.

Now, tassel application does have the potential for going wrong, but if done right, they can look really fabulous. We love these examples for transforming blankets and cushions , a shower curtain update and a simple basket project.

And yes, pom poms are still alive and kicking at 91 HQ! Add a subtle trim to your bedspread and pillows, or go big and fluffy on a handmade rug. The humble pom pom somehow manages to get away with being both playful or chic depending on how you use them…

OK! Time to pay a visit to your local haberdashery or try London based BL Trimmings near Oxford Street as recommended by Laura, our stylist. Alternatively, go hunt out that pom pom maker!
