This or That?

Traditional or contemporary? Bold or subdued? The choice is yours.

Adding trim to a patterned fabric might feel intimidating, but we find it’s the best way to bring a print to life. Here, we transformed five pillows, in two ways, to show how a change of trim can make all the difference. Which one would you choose?

Beaded or brush fringe? On the left, the Veranda Linen Beaded Fringe in Delphinium is paired with the Sophie Cord in Rose Water to create a playfully relaxed pillow edge. To it's right, the Aria Silk Brush Fringe in Blush has a plushier effect, evenly framing Morris & Co's botanical fabric in silky softness.

Tape or textural? The Oberon Brush Fringe in Antique Gold mirrors Harlequin's feather-like flora with a lustrous, metalic pile. In contrast, the Sophie Cord in Dijon is the finishing touch on this layered Françoise Border in Ocher and Prussian, providing a colorblocked frame for this decorative fabric.

Metallic or mitered? The Italian Leather Piping in Metalic Silver creates a simple statement that adds luster and life to Harlequin's black and white jacquard weave. Alternatively, the Harlow Border and La Terre Cut Fringe in Onyx create contrasting layers of geometric and organic details to complete a balanced edge.

Fringe or flax? The Dorset Ombré Tassel Fringe in Coral adds intrigue to the silhouette of this monochromatic pillow in a gradient of corresponding color. To it's right, the Alaya Jute Border divides the delicately embroidered Harlequin fabric with a textural contrast, completed by the Dorset Cord in a matching Oyster colorway.

Coastal or cozy? The Harbour Barrel Knot Fringe in Sand and Sophie Cord in Currant mimick maritime motifs, adding to the seaside story told by this Sanderson fabric. Alternatively, the Postiano Jumbo Brush Fringe in Linen is a softer solution, coordinating with the cream print and creating an invitingly casual finish.
