The Scalloped Edge Interiors Trend Is Still Going Strong

Scalloped Edge

If you still love the sweet scalloped edge interiors trend, you’ll be pleased to hear it’s set to stay. From bedding to towels, furniture to decorative pieces, this versatile and timeless trend works in just about every room of the hour. Read on to shop our current favourites leaning into the look.

Scalloped edges have been loved by the creative world, from interiors to fashion, for decades and add a softer touch to what can essentially feel quite traditional. Think of an old oak chest of drawers trimmed with a scalloped skirt or a beautiful art print framed in a whimsical scalloped edge picture frame. The wavy hems, edging and finishes definitely bring an element of fun and a heap of character to a room with little need for any drastic design overhauls.

Consider working the look in a bedroom. For a statement piece, Daal’s inky blue bed with scallop edge headboard will create a focus point in the room and help to tie in themes around it. We love it against pure white linen bedding and a gang of statement cushions in soft florals and stripes to bring the look together.

For something a little less committal, scallop lampshades are everywhere. Pioneered in recent years by the likes of Matilda Goad and Birdie Fortescue, choose from everything from raffia styles trimmed with scarlet borders or sweet pastel green florals for a slightly ‘60s vibe.

The shell-inspired edges play out brilliantly when worked into crockery and table settings too – we love a pretty scallop-edged napkin for dinner parties or Mrs Alice’s rattan scalloped tray to serve up the first cocktails of the night Or you can use the trend to have some fun with a space, like with Nina Campbell’s layered powder blue Capri mirror.

There’s no chicer way to do weekend breakfast in bed

For a cute gift idea for an interiors lover check out Sharland England’s Hadley tray. The range is the brainchild of fashion journalist and broadcaster Louise Roe, whose love of old-school interiors has launched her own beautiful heritage-inspired brand. Snap up the tray to level up your weekend brunches in bed or add style to summer sundowners in the garden.

And for something more impactful, look to scallop-edged furniture, from John Lewis’ playfully practical peppermint drawers finished with a sweet scallop hem to The Lacquer Company’s emerald green bar cart. We mean, the absolute dream.
