Vintage-inspired homeware trend: Rough Luxe

Jan 25, 2016

by Zenobie Syrett handmade and vintage goods

Rough Luxe is a hotly-tipped interiors trend for 2016, kinda like shabby chic’s much more stylish cousin.

Combining masculine rustic and industrial elements with softer features and fabrics that touch on the ornate, Rough Luxe makes for a well rounded look that oozes understated opulence.

It’s all about embracing imperfections and pairing up the harsh with the smooth – like distressed concrete or brick walls hung with beautiful artwork and stripped antique pieces upholstered with velvets or linens.

You can introduce this highly accessible interior look with a few key pieces and to whet your appetite we’ve gathered our favourites from UK and European sellers below…
