Do you still shudder when you hear the word "fringe" — and envision fuddy-duddy furniture that feels out of touch with modern times? After a long period of mid-century modern mania, more classic and decorative styles are re-emerging and — dare I say it — look fresh again. With just a little bit of trim, you can easily soften the clean lines of an old piece and give it a different look. Or you can make something entirely new.
