Carrocel’s High-End Furniture is Ideally Suited for the Latest in Here-to-Stay Décor
There is no lack of examples from recent history of highly-popular notions that soon became mere footnotes; remember Beanie Babies, the Macarena, Tickle Me Elmo, and Pokémon Go?
Many people can likely recall or at least relate to products/ideas from their lifetime that had promising starts but faded shortly thereafter and with little fanfare. In many of these cases, any discussions about such developments often included a rationalization to the effect that it sounded good at the time, but did not have the staying power to maintain public interest; in essence, that product or idea became a short-term fad rather than a long-standing trend.
This was the theme of a recent segment of CBC television’s The Goods, a daily daytime talk show that offers viewers advice on a healthier, happier, and more sophisticated lifestyle. In this episode, the co-hosts examined home décor from a perspective of what is on-trend and here-to-stay, i.e. ideas and designs that have staying power; and several pieces of high-end furniture and accessories from Carrocel were prominently featured during that segment of the program.
The program began with the co-hosts light-heartedly romanticizing past fads in home décor; this banter highlighted such memorable decorating statements as:
- Shag carpeting
- Wood-panelled walls
- Completely white rooms
- Avocado-coloured appliances
- Matching furniture fabric and wallpaper
The exchange then transitioned from the outlandish to the sublime, with the show’s design expert leading a review of several décor trends that have become more and more accepted and are destined to remain in vogue for many years; these chic design trends included:
- Luxury Furniture that provides comfort without sacrificing style: large, cozy pieces with a tailored design that does not make them appear too bulky or overwhelming in any space
- Jewel Tones: vibrant and distinctive colours that are rich yet soothing and sophisticated; this colourful high-end sofa from Carrocel fine furniture was used as an illustration:
Pair of Mid-Century Jack Lenor Larsen Sofas/Settees/Loveseats
- Each with one large seat cushion, curved backrests, straight sides, caster wheels
- Upholstered in a patterned velvety fabric in various shades of red, blue, and grey
- Mixing Metals: choosing a dominant metal and accenting it with one or two other types; additional depth can be incorporated by utilizing different shades of the dominant option
- Distressed and Natural Wood: shifting away from the importance placed on technological advances over the previous decade and turning back to more natural tones and textures
- Edison Bulbs: imaginative lighting that is visible through clear shades or no shades at all
- Nailhead Detail: a feature commonly used to outline the tailored arms of high-end sofas and chairs which furniture manufacturers are now applying in a more decorative fashion through different types of patterns, spacing, and nailhead sizes
- a nailhead dresser from Carrocel was utilized to help demonstrate this stylish trend:

- Dresser has three drawers and sits above a scalloped base on bracket feet
