Is it over for antlers? Flash in the Can: Designs Soon Forgotten explores the latest trends to reach the saturation point. While most will agree that antlers have had their heyday, is it too early for a bamboo backlash? Is the end in near for all thing Hollywood regency? Is the green movement ready for blue? In addition to Domino editor Deborah Needleman, Metropolitan Home editor Donna Warner and a handful of architects and designers, Grace of design*sponge and our own Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan chime in on trends they're ready to show the door... How did Jason Miller's elegant Superordinate 4 Antler chandelier (left) trickle down to the pink thing on the right? In five years, decorative antlers have almost cleared the shark (who will tell West Elm?). Though we didn't agree with everything presented (isn't cowhide timeless?), this piece is a fun read and there is a slideshow showing off some tiring trends. What trends are ATers weary of? What will be the next big thing? (Pics: Raeanne Giovanni-Inoue)
