The faux bois is the only one I have cared for this year, I have noticed that Harringbone seems to be making a comeback. Or maybe that is just in my house hehe

Where are those ikat vases from? I tried all the links but couldn't find them – they are gorgeous. Cute roundup – thanks for sharing 🙂

Yummy eye candy! I love incorporating a few fun patterns with my neutrals.
Great post! I'm thinking I'll add some modern floral in pillows, etc. in my living room here soon. I also think herringbone and hexagon will continue into 2013.
You know, I love the look of houndstooth…except we live in the South and my husband is a die hard LSU Tiger fan. Their rivals, the Alabama Crimson Tide has appropriated houndstooth as their official pattern. Therefore, I am not "allowed" to like it. Horrible, right?! Football is so SERIOUS.

I love all those patterns, but I'm wondering if you have a sense of how long they usually last before they're seen as outdated. I've been hesitant to use these patterns in anything other than a pillow so that I don't have to invest in reupholstering or buying a new rug in the near future.
Modern floral is by far my favorite! Is that a picture of your diningroom?

These are such fun patterns & themes! Yay for good trends!
I really liked the ikat prints I saw this year…but never quite enough to actually buy any of them. I am in the market for curtains with some kind of modern pattern for our living room and I can't find one I love enough to drop the cash I will be spending to get what I want…heavyweight for energy efficiency, lined, nicely finished. I have spent years buying "good enough for now" things while we paid off debt, built our savings, had kids…now we are more financially secure and I am finally ready to buy some things that will last and I can't decide!!!

I'm in love with the Greek theme. It gives a peaceful "medieval" feeling in the atmosphere of a room setting. Regarding the houndstooth design, we don't have a furniture that displays this kind of pattern but I have a purse that proudly shows it.
I am not a big flowery person….but those chairs….I die!!! OMG beautiful!
