Global Design Style
Global design is all about worldly adventure. Imagine what a world traveler’s home would look like. Think cool trinkets from Spain, textured baskets from Morocco, a Persian rug, and silk fabric from India.

To recreate this style, you can shop at flea markets and antique shops. You’ll also find unique items on EBay or Etsy’s antique market. If you travel, make sure to bring back decorative items that you love.
Spaces that incorporate global design are usually very colorful. Global rooms are rich in bold designs and natural textures. The mix of different patterns and cultures make global spaces fun and interesting. Each curated piece becomes a conversation starter.

Unique lines and design of global furniture ground the look of the space.
Artifacts are displayed in an eclectic nature, without regards for grouping by the part of the world each piece is from. An antique African Juju hat, for example, would look great on a gallery wall next to Indian spears and French art. Organic forms, such as animal horns and rocks, add to the worldly atmosphere.

Kilim rugs, unique pendants and sconces, and furniture upholstered in hide enhance the look of global design.

Global design is what you make it. It’s a reflection of your travels and where you want to go. It reflects things you want to do and people you want to meet.
