Furniture Jewelry

I know. It looks like a charm bracelet for a giant. But it's not. It's actually furniture jewelry, a weird trend in the furniture accesorizing industry.

From Furniture companies push clients to accessorize:

At J. Roaman, a home-furnishings store in East Hampton, N.Y., a painted white iron bed wears a giant charm bracelet over its left head post. The bracelet isn't there because the bed wants for visual interest; it's already enveloped in a brightly colored quilt by Lisa Corti, a Milanese designer, and topped with four pillows, five throw pillows and a bolster.

The reason for the jewelry, according to Judi Roaman, a former fashion retailer who opened the store in May, is that furniture, like any carefully curated outfit, should express its owner's personality. "Accessories make the bed into who you want her to be," she explained.

The idea that furniture should wear jewelry may strike some people as, well, nuts. But the notion behind it – that the kind of personal style associated with fashion can and should be expressed through home accessorizing, in ways that go far beyond throw pillows – has become a guiding principle of the furnishings industry.

The article goes on to call this "A merging of design worlds," which I find interesting even though I feel a giant-sized charm bracelet may be a wee bit over the top.
