"I've always been a big fan of tassels and fringe trim, and I'm seeing them adopted more and more onto furnishings and accents—even in more modern settings," says Blakeney. "One of my favorite things about tassels, besides how they look, is that in many parts of the world tassels are believed to ward off the evil eye and are a symbol of protection—and who doesn't need a bit of that in 2017? This tassel lamp from Arteriors puts a big smile on my face."
