As small decorative objects are becoming highly regarded as collectible items in high-end homes, these original objects are making their way into luxury guestrooms to complement custom furnishings.
Paradigm Trends is expanding its product offerings to include a fun and spirited collection of objets d’art. The New York City-based company saw a growing need in guestroom decor that delivers a memorable statement of art while inviting guests to touch these sculptural pieces.
“As accessory designers in the hospitality sector, we are often drawn to the whimsy and playful additions that are more frequently becoming an important part of the guestroom,” said Jeanne Lissak, SVP, Paradigm Trends. “We chose these accessories (Paper Clip, Peace, Skippy and Tic Tac Toe) in particular because they were versatile statement pieces that could accentuate multiple decor themes. We think our clients are looking for the unexpected, and they are excited to see room decor pieces that function as a memorable art statement.”
Here’s a look at four whimsical and high-end pieces sure to be adored by the young and the young at heart:
A seemingly innocuous item, the paper clip presents a symbol of solidarity and unity by binding things together. Paper Clip by Paradigm Trends honors this everyday object that has maintained its “gem clip” shape since its invention in the 1800s. From a decor perspective, Paper Clip brings a residential feel to any guestroom. The simplicity of its oblong shape with straight sides makes it instantly familiar and functional, with the ability to double as a unique holder for guestroom collateral to nestle between its loops. An ideal choice for guestroom desks, the piece is made from gold-finished aluminum and white marble.
The Peace Accessory by Paradigm Trends is a spirited and bold way to add personality to a hotel guestroom. With gold-finished aluminum and white marble, the piece adds a splash of metallic color and a nod to peace, featuring hand sculptures forming a peace sign.
Classified as a companion dog, the French Bulldog is extremely friendly, people-pleasing and enjoys following human companions from room to room. Skippy by Paradigm Trends is no exception. Invite man’s best friend into any room as a way to fill space and create an eclectic vignette on tabletops, mantels, shelves and more. The piece is composed of aluminum and marble.
Tic Tac Toe
Perfect for youthful spirited travelers who appreciate stylish materials, Tic Tac Toe by Paradigm Trends is a chic interpretation of the classic game that can be traced back to ancient Egypt. Because of the simplicity of tic-tac-toe, guests of all ages can entertain themselves. The collection consists of six X and O pieces, which can move around the game board, made of grey marble.
