Maybe it’s the second-coming of the “Roaring Twenties,” or maybe it’s just because everyone needs a little fun in their lives.
Either way, fringe is back in a big way. In both fashion and home decor, fringe adds movement, depth and visual interest, making any piece it touches a swinging good time. Here are a few items to help you feel fringe-worthy.
Interior Define Aquarius Textile Wall Art ($225)
Love the look of fringe, but prefer it on an accent piece versus a larger furniture item? Consider a framed fringe textile from newly debuted Interior Define, now open at Buckhead Village District. This alternative to flat artwork brings all of the fun without any of the fuss and will look good in any soothing and calming space. If you would like to see it in person prior to purchasing, make an appointment with an Interior Define specialist to take advantage of the brand’s free design services.
Who says you can’t frost yourself with fringe? Exclusive to Saks, these fringe earrings are just begging for a night out on the town. Made from 18K yellow gold-plated sterling silver and cubic zirconia, they’ll make you want to swing your head from side to side, whether out to dinner at Aria or on the dance floor at Johnny’s Hideaway.

Made from brass and horsehair, this stool from family-run, New York-based brand Konekt is a real conversation starter. Its velvet and lush fringe trim bring dimension to any tableau, and its petite size allows for it to be stored away easily if needed. Exclusive in Atlanta to R Hughes at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center, it has a lead time of about four to eight weeks, so get to ordering.
Julie Neill for Visual Comfort Vacarro Large Chandelier ($4,949)
This showstopper of a chandelier comes in three finishes: antique bronze leaf, antique gold leaf and plaster white, a crisp and modern version. New Orleans-based lighting designer Julie Neill brings an artisan’s touch to each of her designs, including those for lighting brand Visual Comfort, available at Circa Lighting. Whether hanging in an entryway or making a statement in a master bedroom, this chandelier adds highwattage glamour.
Responsible for “cool girl” looks since its inception, Chloé has long incorporated fringe into its designs. In honor of the Marcie handbag’s 10th anniversary, the leather bag gets an update with attention-grabbing fringe and a commemorative stamp. The satchel with hand and long shoulder straps workable to wear cross-body pairs perfectly with spring’s other major accessory trend, chain belts. It Girl-mode, activated.
