(PRWEB UK) 25 February 2013
Interior designers and arty homeowners are setting a sparkly new trend as they add thousands of crystals to their furniture and home accessories.
Once the preserve of celebrities in designer dresses on the red carpet, Swarovski elements are increasingly being used to turn pieces of furniture or soft furnishings into beautiful, dazzling statement pieces that are sure to be the envy of neighbours and friends everywhere.
From bed linen and headboards to curtains, cushions and even wallpaper, the stunning crystals can quickly and easily revitalise a home, adding glitz and glamour to even the most basic of furnishings.
And adding them to Christmas decorations - or creating new decorations with the crystals - proved popular again in 2012.
The fashion has continued to gather pace domestically as an extension of Swarovski, being used to breathe new life into dresses, shoes and handbags for the past few years.
As the crystals are available in a range of shapes and sizes and can be attached with either glue or heat, there’s a type for everyone and their individual project - from designing a brand new chandelier with the large crystals to jazzing up an old photo frame with small ones.
Crystal Parade, a major stockist of genuine Swarovski elements in the UK, has in recent months been inundated with requests for advice from interior designers and homeowners on how to give their home a touch of added sparkle.
Wendy C Miller, Managing Director said: “It may be that many people are preferring to redecorate and revitalise their homes rather than selling up and moving, or just that they want a little more sparkle in their lives.
“But there is certainly a trend for using these beautiful little crystals that goes far beyond simply using them for jewellery, such as the Crystal Parade Swarovski pendants.
“As Swarovski elements are available in a range of colours, effects, shapes and sizes, they can be used to very beautiful effect in a home. Making something bespoke and sparkly is not only satisfying when you see the finished article but a great way to relax - and maybe even an activity to enjoy with the children!”
Crystal Parade is based in the UK and is both a Swarovski wholesale supplier and retailer. It supplies to artists, couture houses, dancers, designers, dressmakers, gymnasts, hobbyists, manicurists, milliners, stylists and theatres both nationally and internationally.
