Enter industrial chic barstools!  They are popping up everywhere!

But how do you know which one is right for you?  They can be used in both modern and traditional settings and these images are great examples to help you decide!

color trend: peacock, turquoise, teal by paige gilbertson

Not only are peacocks showing up as decorative motifs, but the deep turquoise color is quickly gaining ground as a top color trend of Winter/Spring 2010. From punchy, modern patterns on rugs and fabrics to sophisticated classical ceramic lamps, this deep teal tone can work with any style. Think peacock silk curtains with white leather seating and chocolate walls or grey flannel on a classic English sofa with teal gourd lamps.


Sherwin-Williams includes this color in their 2010 Color Forecast.

Pantone’s Color of the Year is the major influence for every industry related to design from Fashion and Interiors to Graphic Design and Paper goods.
