2012 Trends: Bold Colour & '70s Upholstery

Infuse a living room with colour and texture.

Large swathes of solid hues are key to this new bold look. Go bigger than throw pillows and accessories to add dramatic punch; a colour-saturated rug or wall anchors a room, or as shown here, two bold lilac chairs make a serious statement in an otherwise-neutral space. Plus, the latest upholstered pieces are dressed in fabric from top to bottom. Sleek, fully covered seating proves that everything old is hip again.
