I’m a big fan of ethnic designs and global crafts. If you recall, I recently shared a collection of Portuguese Pottery Lamps I sourced from a trip to Portugal. You can learn a lot from viewing a country’s art and design, and I’m excited to continue to bring new and different ethnic items to the store. The latest group of ethnic designs are from Nicaragua. These Nicaraguan Wood Lamps are hand-carved and come in an array of bold colors. These hand-carved designs feature a nod to the Nicaraguan rain forest and natural wonders.
Globally influenced color, patterns and shapes is a prominent interior design trend in 2016. Pantone’s PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2016 color forecast notes the ethnic colors as one of its four main color themes of 2016. It’s quite amazing to see how an ethnic home accessory can bring any space to life!
