5 Fashion-Inspired 2015 Tabletop Trends You Need to Know
One of the things that is going to get us through a long, chilly winter (other than the occasional hot toddy) is knowing what's to come in 2015. Home trends and those that went down the runway at 2015 fashion week were perfectly suited for each other and are making for some very desirable tabletop trimmings. Take a look at these five top tabletop trends that you're going to want in your home.
A Nod to the Near East
While orange is one hot color, we saw many patterns that nodded to the Near East. Elaborate Islamic-inspired script prints, bold graphic renderings that take you on a trip through the Silk Road and lattice prints on flatware made a major statement at October's New York tabletop preview. Ideal for the bohemian home, these bold colors and prints will have a major impact on your guests.

Give it a Golden Touch
Gold is the metal for your tabletop decor and since it's on everything from dinnerware, flatware and barware, you're guaranteed to give your home the perfect gilded touch. A classic metallic, it's warmer than using silver in the home, and it adds just the slightest touch of retro elegance. Caroline Irving, Creative Director for Oscar de la Renta Home, mixed heavy gold brass with tortoiseshell glass for one gorgeous ice bucket we wanted to take home with us.
Brutalism is Banging at Your Door
Earlier this year, we saw that Neo-Brutalism was a hot new trend for furniture but now, it's right for the tabletop. It may sound tough but Brutalism's masculine lines are getting gorgeous with a more fractured, gem-like touch. Slick metallics, like pewter and sharp lines are giving both dinnerware and flatware a hyper-modern look. Our favorite? The Greyson smoke serving bowl, which would make a killer centerpiece on any table, year round.
Modern Florals are Springing Up
Upon walking into the Lenox preview, we immediately started eyeing Kate Spade's floral Rose Park pattern. Simple reds and pinks banded in black and gold created a super elegant look to dinnerware that could be used daily. See how similar they are to the pink prints at Cacharel and Cynthia Rowley! More traditional florals were also spotted: Villeroy-Boch worked with an artist to create their new Provençal pattern. Whether looking for a modern or Old World bloom, there's sure to be one for you.

Stoneware is Going Back to Basics
Both fashion and home trends are taking a turn for the homemade and handmade -- chunky knits, macrame and fabrics with an America vibe. Hearty stoneware is hot right now and ideal for the casual home type. Coming in earthy colors and textures, you'll feel like you're hiding out in a chic cabin in the woods.
