Open House: Can You Turn Trends Into Classics?

Hawley McLean Haleblian, whose home earned an Honorable Mention in the Met Home of the Year Awards, has re-envisioned last year's zebra trend, employing a technique that makes it much more permanent.

Instead of cautiously experimenting with a zebra print pillow, Hawley went all out. She tore out an 18-square-foot section of tile, and then drew in the outline of a zebra hide. She filled in the outline with smashed black and white tiles and fixed it permanently in the floor.

I love this unexpected touch, and think it could arguably stand the test of time. Can you think of any other home trends that you'd be willing to add to your home in a more permanent manner? Whether with a mosaic tiling effect or an expensive piece of heirloom-quality furniture, what trend would you turn into a classic at your abode?
