Fashion and Furniture: The Uniformed Cycles

Fashion and furniture go hand in hand through cycles, through seasons, through explorations.  They carry similar patterns and colors and move together through the motion of new design discovery in unison.  If you look closely at both worlds (fashion and furniture) you can see that they are both sculptures, both art, both work closely with the human body.  Below are some sculptural examples, scroll down and mesmerize yourself with this beauty.

Finding both of these amazing works of art on PINTEREST, notice how great artists think a like and develop similar shapes and colors for both fashion and furniture.

Another example of sculptural art in both innovative industries.  The beautiful use of color and shape to create these pieces that develop strong visual interest.  These images again are from the powerful source of PINTEREST.

Outside of the sculptural side of these industries there is also an everyday side that focuses mostly on pattern and fabric. Anthropologie, Dot and Bo for furniture have similar color schemes and pattern as Diane Von Furstenberg, a great artist that uses color and pattern to express herself.  Lets take a look to see how they follow similar identities.

These works of art are both from Anthropologie, following similar color and patterns and are expressing the season between winter and spring.  The bright reds shining from the beautiful cool blues.

Notice here, with Diane Von Furstenberg, her use of pattern and color contrast emanate through these unique and stunning chairs from Anthropolgie’s home selection.

DVF vs Dot and Bo’s checkered chair and ottoman.  The look, the feel, the ideas are so similar.  They both carry the look of comfort as well, treating the body with similar respect.

Pattern and color once again, this time between Diane and Anthropologie.  Notice how those qualities are not the only ones that shine through these beautiful designs, but the shape.  They both have square or rectangular characteristics for their body which work really well together.

Once again, fashion and furniture hold hands through seasonal change, along with pattern and color explorations.  A stunning thing to see multiple industries working together to create balance in the design world!
