HIGH POINT, N.C., (March 31, 2011) - Fresh from spring showrooms, the trend report for home furnishings is out and according to
La-Z-Boy, "BoHo chic" will soon be seen in living rooms throughout the country. From fabrics with florals and ornate designs to
stripes and bursting patterns, BoHo chic, or Bohemian Rhapsody as La-Z-Boy is calling it, is one trend
your home can "wear" all year long.
The bohemian trend made a splash in women's wear this fall, and now showrooms at the High
Point Furniture are highlighting Bohemian Rhapsody, a combination of "old world" and fashion-forward styles. Often classified
as a "hippy" look, Bohemian Rhapsody makes its way into home décor with the same oranges, browns and golds that make its layered
looks so lovely on ladies. Each Bohemian Rhapsody fabric brings life to the living room - patterns translate seamlessly to
sofas, love seats and chairs and the multiple BoHo colors complement solid
paint colors and accessories.
Furniture Follows Fashion
"Furniture often follows fashion, and in recent years trends are moving from the runway to the living room very quickly," said Penny
Eudy, product manager of upholstery for La-Z-Boy. "Just like clothing is a personal taste, La-Z-Boy
offers a wide-selection of furniture options, including fabric choices that
fit your lifestyle."
New to Market, La-Z-Boy is showing fabrics that embody Bohemian Rhapsody including "Vanity" pattern
in "Maple" and "Tolland" pattern in "Paprika." As shown in these fabrics, Bohemian Rhapsody includes an earthy color palette, bursting
with hues of orange, red, brown and gray. The style incorporates the Bohemian lifestyle of free self-expression and comes to life
with a collection of free-formed, whimsical patterns.
"The Bohemian lifestyle centers around individualism and choice, which is what consumers will get with these new fabric options,"
said Eudy. "Each pattern has an expressive look that allows consumers to identify with a particular style and incorporate it into
their home decor."
