Stylist Malina Tabor and interior designer Jill White team up to dissect some of 2020’s most sought-after trends and their unlikely crossovers to the worlds of both attire and abode.

TREND
Woven Fibers
This year an emergence of crocheted fashion and fiber art are taking over the runway and our homes. The use of natural fibers and these handcrafted styles provide a sense of nostalgia while remaining modern and cool.

“You can mix fiber art with any existing artwork, or it can stand alone. Opt for a custom, handmade woven piece for your wall instead of another photograph or traditional art.” –Jill White

Sculptural
Sculpted visuals are all about a strong line. Although a timeless element of design, this season more structured pieces are emerging for the home, especially the closet.
