We chatted with Urban Barn’s merchandise manager Sébastien Fauteux about autumn’s top decor trends.
Front and centre for the retailer’s fall preview, the Liberty sofa in Anastasia Pastel (below) was as an unexpected introduction.
“We tend to organically gravitate toward warmer tones for fall. But one of the exciting things about this fall is that a softer colour palette is being introduced and has been well received by our customers, coast-to-coast,” Fauteux says.
“This softer colour palette is shown in our Jack & Jill colour story, where there is a balance of navy blue with the softer ballet pink,” Fauteux said of the Fleur duvet set. “The result is casual yet sophisticated, romantic without being too feminine. Ballet pink is also an easy colour to introduce if you have a very neutral palette in your space.”
Here, Fauteux shares more on what’s trending for fall.
“Another colour that packs a punch this season is Cumin. It’s an extension of the brass metal trend, but interpreted through textiles as with our Clooney toss.”
“Mixed materials also add personality and give a piece an extra element of design. The tone of metals has also evolved over the years. Not that long ago, the first thing that came to mind when speaking of metals was chrome but now black metal, aged brass and pewter are in favour.” (Pyramid console table above).
