Spotlight: Fall 2016 Design Trends

It’s hard to imagine that the summer is coming to an end, especially when you live somewhere like L.A. where it seems to feel like summer year round. Anyhow, we’re looking forward to cooler weather (it couldn’t come any sooner) as well as showcasing a few of the trends happening in 2016 Fall fashion and furnishings. Here at On Madison we love to link the connections between fashion, art and interior design, and it’s impossible not to acknowledge how each one influences one another when it comes to trends and what’s “in” this year.

For Fall 2016, On Madison would like to share a few stylish trends we’d like to shine a spotlight on, specifically:

  • marble accents and details
  • “granny” florals all over the runways and interiors
  • raffia and other natural materials done up in a modern way
  • technicolor yet tastefully energetic stripes
  • metal/fur/leather in combination
  • Fall-2016-trend

Too Cool For Just School

It feels like there’s a whole lot of summer left, but believe it or not, many kids are back in school this week. Any of you with kids going back to school know that the key to not going crazy is an organized workspace where they can do their homework and, hopefully, keep their notebooks, books, and supplies neat and orderly.

Of course, On Madison believes that even a teenager’s work space needs to be stylish. Here are some of our favorite organizing goodies that combine form and function. Who knows, homework might even be fun!

Design Spotlight: Marc Jacobs

I guess it’s natural that fashion designers should live in fashionable homes. After all, their gimlet eye is what drives the details that go into the apparel they design. Many designers’ homes have become legendary, the homes of Bill Blass, Ralph Lauren and, of course, Yves St. Laurent being among them. Marc Jacob’s Manhattan apartment, featured in this month’s Architecture Digest, exemplifies the type of refined, sophisticated style that reminds us of those earlier fashion icons.

Jacobs’ apartment defies a set style. Rather, it’s a slick mix of Art Deco, 1970’s cool, and great contemporary art. Designer Thad Hayes and later John Gachot, former assistant designer in Thad Hayes’ office, helmed the project. They helped assemble Jacobs’ formidable collection of pieces by Pierre Chareau, Diego Giacometti, Samuel Marx and Eugene Printz into one fabulous but sublimely understated whole.
