Ikat Patterns: Exotic Energy & Classic Style

My love of ikat is everywhere in my life- ikat shoes, dresses, reupholstered chairs… and soon some ikat art to round-out the mix!  Ikat is an “exotic” patterning that creates a sense of fire with a blaze of color or a streak of neutrals, colors that seem to melt while retaining shape.  Ikat is a really gorgeous and somewhat universal way to add the motivation of motion, the spark of elemental fire and the dimensional layering of awesome print all at once!

While this bedroom is a bit too blue for my taste, the fabric makes it all work.

Ikat Art: I’ve been thinking of this as a series to paint and seeing some inspiration….its SUCH a great idea.  You can grab this one on Etsy.

More neutral ikat still has a buzzy edge.

Ikat pillows are-off-the-charts awesome to add visual interest to a space!

And a bit of custom upholstery in ikat will never fail you!  Ever. I’ll never part with my own ikat chairs!
