GREEN WITH ENVY
Explosive throughout showrooms, green was a prevalent color in upholstery, artwork, case goods, and even rugs. Dramatic accents in case goods, such as the Houston Cabinet by Chelsea House, with its apple green raffia interior, generated a worthy buzz. Chaddock took a bold stance by introducing a rich emerald cut velvet with a dimensional, naturally-inspired graphic on their sophisticated Chase Chair. Nourison blended an exciting mixture of green, cream, and blue tones to create a watercolor effect in their new Prismatic Seafoam Rug. Christopher Kennedy’s ”Grove” abstract artwork with Wendover Art was another showstopper. It’s clear that green is here to stay as manufacturers find unique applications for this lively color.
