Another trend I spotted at the AD Show was furniture (and pillows, as seen above from the Design Lush booth) with some shimmer. Opalescent leather, especially when used with other items in the same tone, adds a real wow factor.
Vendors showed a wide range of opalescent leather--everything from the green crocodile embossed above to adding in some silver like the pattern in ottoman above. My favorite, is the subtle use at MG+BW's booth with their Ashton chair. A little definitely goes a long way.
