TODAY Home Predicts Rustic & Modern Popularity

Mix Rustic withtapped-maple-table_03 Modern for a Tastefully Trend Inspired Home

Rustic mixed with modern will be a major trend in 2015 as predicted by TODAY Home. The author, Amy Eley, mentions mixing weathered woods with modern accents, and even points to a table found on Pinterest that looks much like our very own Vermont Tapped Maple Accent Table. We’d have to agree with this trend prediction as the fusion reclaimed wood and metal has been gaining popularity all year. Our Vermont Tapped Maple Accent Table is a great starter point for bringing in a chic and subtle part of this trend into your home!
