Hate to Say We Told You So: Lace

We forecast that lace would be a big trend for home interiors for 2010, and it seems to be everywhere  in design from fashion and beauty (lace fingernails) to interiors and architecture (lace fences). Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is just a textile trend- we’ve found some great examples of lace patterns being embossed and printed onto glass and porcelain, laser cut metals with lace effects, and starched vintage lace molded into sculptural shapes. We love printed lace for packaging and greetings cards and expect this to be a key trend for Valentine and Mother’s Day this year…

Lace influences architecture; lace balcony, lace fence and lace building.

Lace influences dinnerware and decorative plates- either as a print, laser cut or intricate porcelain plate design.

Lace print wash basin, and etched design packaging by Evian, printed lace beauty packaging and lace fingernails as seen on this season’s catwalks.

Printed glass works well for votives and adds a luxurious element, while stiffened, starched cotton lace makes a striking lightshade.

Lace packing tape is fun, while embossed letterpress greetings cards look sophisticated and feminine.

We love this lace print beauty packaging by Lipstick Queen too…
