Here at ID, we keep tabs on trends. And not just in the realm of furniture; many times, what’s hot in the fashion world dictates the direction of the home decor industry as well. And denim absolutely ruled the runways in Paris during the Spring/Summer 2015 shows. So we’ve asked Chicago-based stylist and fashionista Heidy Best of BeClothesMinded (rocking some dark wash skinnies herself) to pull some apparel pieces inspired by her favorite indigo and denim-look Interior Define sofa and chair designs.
Heidy: “The Walters sofa serves a variety of lifestyles, and is both comfortable and sturdy. It is large enough to seat several people at once, and yet it has a smaller footprint than many sectionals I’ve seen. The great thing about this medium blue fabric is that you can easily change the look by switching out the pillows seasonally to enhance or tone down the sofa color. And if you want to blend in, the oh-so-on-trend 3-in-1 Carpenter Jacket by The Gap.”
Heidy: “For someone looking for a contemporary spin on a classic chair, the Sloan Fabric Accent Chair (in Cerulean Blue, $700) adds just the right amount of color to a living space. The Sloan family is ID’s go-to recommendation for smaller spaces and for those more unique floor plans. It comes in 3 sizes and is completely customizable. For an equally masculine look, this sleek Brimmed Hat with Band for boys from Zara fits the bill.”
Heidy: If you have more of an eclectic, casual aesthetic, the Gray sofa (in Marine, $1600) has an interesting reverse stitch seam around the edges that adds a bohemian vibe. I would add a large, colorful painting or photograph behind the couch as well as a rustic wood coffee table in a darker stain to add texture. The Marine fabric color is a perfect complement to these 70s-style Pilcro Superscript High-Rise Flare Jeans from Anthropologie.”
Heidy: “The Asher sofa (in Sky, $1600) has an ideal urban scale and a very versatile style. It’s inviting enough to kick up and relax at the end of the day, but sophisticated enough to entertain dinner guests as well. And the color is so incredibly cheerful! It reminds me of this Chambray Peplum Tank from Rivet & Thread.”
Heidy: “For those craving a more contemporary shape, the Prichard sofa (in Slate Blue, $2500) is the best option. This piece is not only comfortable but its muted gray-blue color lends itself to bolder throw pillows and a variety of accessories such as a printed area rug, statement wall paper, and even that vintage midcentury lamp you found at a weekend flea market. The soothing blue hue of the upholstery matches the faded shade of the Surf Skinny Jean from Rag & Bone.”
