A more modern Grandmillénaire

“Trends for 2022 include the adoption of floral patterns, a sort of updated 1940s chintz vibe, resplendent in Mario Buatta’s memory, but in more contemporary palettes. The “big millennial” look that was slowly infiltrating influencers and tastemakers in 2021 has now become more mainstream, bringing the likes back to a “more is more” look. But unlike the interiors of our grandparents, the mood is more polished with floral and damask print wallpapers that become the backdrop for contemporary shaped upholstery fabrics, to which an extra touch of glamor is added with unexpected fringes and piping. -Martyn Lawrence Bullard
