Trend: Crochet

Adjectives like “fresh,” “clean” and “spare” best describe the sophisticated palette of chalky white, greige and inky black.

The doily emerges as the style’s ladylike icon: it’s reimagined as the pattern for a handmade rug by the Finnish duo behind Hooked Design and screen-printed by Beau Ideal Editions on recycled cardstock. For a cutting-edge interpretation, check out the sculptural crochet side table by Moss or take inspiration from Mokuba’s woven trims, which would look stunning on accent pillows to update living rooms and bedrooms.
