Fusion style (from the English.fusion, which means fusion) is a trend in interior design that originated in different versions in the early 80’s in the Philippines or in the 90’s of the twentieth century in America. The style itself is characterized by the fact that it is possible to combine incongruous: colors, textures and different stylistic directions.
A bit from the history of the fusion style
Unfortunately, today no one can name the exact date when the fusion style was formed. Some historians and designers believe that it was more or less present in the interiors at different times. However, it was most popular in the 90 – ies of the twentieth century in the United States. It is believed that American designers were the first who began to combine elements of different styles and objects belonging to the culture of different peoples in the interior.
The color scheme in the fusion style is as diverse as possible. However, in it, there are basic colors that are most popular among designers – green, crimson, gold and sea color. However, in addition to cold and rich colors, warm pastel shades can be used in the interior, in order, for example, to focus on a particular detail without distracting attention from it.
Designers are advised to abandon the classic chandeliers for several horns and opt for spot lighting. There are several reasons for this decision. First of all, with this type of lighting, it is quite easy to highlight a separate area in the room with light. In addition, each soffit will create a small light show, giving the interior pathos and mysterious notes.
In addition to spot lighting in the interior in the fusion style, you can use several lamps that can be attributed to different styles. The main rule was when they were combined – together they should create a complete composition and act as a decorative element.
The fusion style is based on a variety of textures and textures. Special preference is given to natural materials: stone, wood, linen fabric, leather. However, smooth surfaces are rarely used in the interior. Special attention is paid to tactile sensations when touching the surface. Thus, the walls can be upholstered with fabric or stylized as masonry, and the floor is covered with a soft fleecy carpet or animal skin.
The fusion style is the absence of frames. The only requirement for furniture items in the interior is the integrity of the composition. Often the design combines ultra-modern furniture with retro details. For example, an antique dining table can be combined with modern chrome-plated chairs or a bright modern sofa with a vintage coffee table.
The fusion-style interior is a combination of Bohemian luxury and simple items needed in everyday life. An abundance of textiles – this is curtains, and all kinds of pillows, and blankets that create a sense of comfort in the room.
