There is an interesting article in today's New York Times about trends that have risen and fallen over the past year. Included are riffs on David Hicks' geometric look of overlapping squares, antler lamps and plastic, resin and wood "trophy" heads, cowhide rugs and (gasp)suzanis. The article includes a slide show of things that have been determined to be "over".
The feeling is that once design items go from the designer showroom or show house to the catalogues like Ballard Design or West Elm, then the trend becomes ubiquitous and is over.
