UncategorizedSeven “Timeless” Trends With Antiques October 10, 2011 By Mary Ann Pickett 54 Comments Recently, I visited the beautiful showroom of Elizabeth Benefield at the Laguna Niguel, California Design Center. 1. Notice the antique Chinese plates with pink and jade. These seem to be gaining a resurgence in popularity. 2. Blue and White China is still going strong. 3. Framed Antique Maps are on trend. Look for authentic maps (that have meaning to you–like where you or your ancestors are from or places you love to visit) on ebay and have framed. 4. Use Vintage Textiles to have pillows created. The red fabric is new from Elizabeth Benefield’s designs. 5. Use Weathered Garden Ornaments Indoors 6. Painted Wood Furniture 7. Framed Intaglios (more about them here) and how to make reproductions at Interior Design Musings here.
