Holiday Trend Forecast

Each year, Youngsong Martin announces a new collection of holiday linen and chair covers. For the 2008 holiday season, there are three main themes running throughout her collections – earth-friendly cloths and looks; variations on white; and luxe beauty.

The environment continues to take center stage this holiday. While Wildflower Linen offers a line of eco cloths made with natural dye and untreated textiles, the big news is a line inspired by the colors of nature such as Ottoman Aloe – a rich green shade, Shantung Eggplant – in fashion, this tone is the new “black” this year, and Charmeuse champagne – making champagne available for any budget!

White and silver remain popular holiday looks. This year, Wildflower Linen mixes its Shantung Silver Linen with an iridescent taffeta napkin in cornflower blue for a soft look and Ottoman White Linen with a charmeuse napkin and tie-back chair cover in periwinkle blue.

The holidays are time for all that is warm, cozy and a bit indulgent. To satisfy this craving, Wildflower Linen has deliciously combined its Crushed Velvet Mocha Linen with a charmeuse napkin in ruby red and chair cover to match. Wrapping up the luxe life line is a tabletop featuring diamond taffeta linen in dark orchid with an iridescent taffeta napkin in apple green and charmeuse tie-back chair cover in fern.
