Modern Edge: Feathers

modern feathers

Study nature. Love nature. Stay close to nature. It will never fail you. – Frank Lloyd Wright.

Recently spotted on the runways of designers from New York to Milan, feathers are now filtering into the modern home marketplace in a multitude of different forms. The shape of a feather, distinct and recognizable, becomes wall art, in graphic bold colors or soft muted ones. Wall coverings and fabrics showcase the ethereal and airy patterns of feathers.

Feathers carved from wood, crafted from metal, are transformed into light fixtures, sculptures, and accents. Bringing nature in with feathers simply and elegantly symbolizes a new beginning and is the perfect trend for spring. The aura of a feather works well with organic and sustainable furnishings, while drawing inspiration from a timeless shape.
