Unless you live in a monochrome cave then you can’t escape the Ikat love. It’s everywhere, from dresses to cushions to carpets, it seems designers (and consumers) just can’t get enough of this exotic print.
There’s something beautifully indulgent about an Ikea pattern. In fact, back in the day, Ikat fabric was often seen as a status of wealth because it took so flipping long to make. The word “Ikat” translates as “to tie” in Indonesian, giving us a huge clue as to how those heady, hypnotic patterns were originally created – by using a dying method very like tie-dying.
History lesson aside, it’s a great print to get on board with if you want to bring some colour and Eastern-inspired pattern into a room. The Ikat wallpaper featured in the picture above is by Kelly Hoppen for Graham & Brown and costs £20 a roll. Feature wall, anyone?
If you don’t fancy committing to Ikat with some wallpaper then you could always go for the no-strings cushion option instead. Here are some lovely ones around at the moment (hurry with the MADE pick though – there are only a few left in stock!).
On board with the Ikat love? Then share the love and pin this post for later…
