Trending at ELTE

A few weeks ago the Canadian design staple known as ELTE, hosted a breakfast for industry insiders to hear about their take on trends and get a sneak preview of some hot items they’re bringing in.

Here is a round-up of some of my fave new arrivals:


This super glam lilac Alpaca Fur Pillow, $265 is an example of the fur trend, which stormed runways at Fashion Week.


Graphic abstract  modern prints are very in…I would do bad things in order to own this Maverick 9 x 12 ivory and ebony wool rug, $2,695


Ikat is still everywhere you turn, as seen in these throw pillows on the Tate sofa, $4,795


Welting as a design feature was also mentioned, like in this swivel  Hickory Chair lounger which has a grosgrain flange, $3,425 and in this contrast-piped bergere chair, $1595 (we all know how I love contrast piping!)


Saturated rugs, like this 5 x 10 aubergine beauty, provide a quirky twist on traditional oriental motifs, $1,515


And lucky for me, two of my favourites, stripes and gilding, are sticking around (I doubt they will ever really go away due to their classic status..)

Happy Trending!
