When it comes to the collision of interior design and fashion, no better example can be found than in the city of New York. Its tall buildings and urban feel make it a wonderland for great fashion finds and more mature styles. I found this Fashionista walking down the street in Times Square and was immediately reminded of the organic forms in the lobby of the Marriott Marquis.
Her outfit is simple, following a basic gray scale color palette, with smooth lines and large blocks of shape. The look is chic and somewhat utilitarian. She wears very few accessories, but instead accents her outfit with hints of metal (as seen on her shoes) and knit pieces.
Adding this style to your home results in a very clean and modern feel. The styles used in the hotel have smooth lines and solid colors, mimicking the look of the Fashionista’s outfit. While some forms are very geometric, there are also organic ones mixed in. For instance, the lights surrounding the bar are organic forms while the chairs are very modular with straight lines and symmetry.
The clean modern looks are taking the runway by storm, giving us a glimpse into the future of fashion. These advanced looks aren’t quite what the movie Zenon Girl of the 21st Century had in mind, but are much more realistic. The trends can be taken from the runway straight to the streets. Alexander Wang gives us a great example, with organic shapes and simplistic forms.
To incorporate this style into your home, look for items in solid colors without much detailing. Be sure to find items with smooth lines and a mix of organic and geometric shapes. The key to this trend is simplicity. You can easily find lighting fixtures, sculptures, furniture and wall hangings that exemplify this look. Look below for some examples of our favorites.
