Moving away from the playfulness of chevron and houndstooth, this year is shaping up for recapturing opulence at home. Brocades, jacquards and damasks are all making a comeback and the addition of gold or silver thread will offer an even more decadent mood. Cushions in these rich materials are a great way to ease into the trend.
