polka dots bench- House Beautiful

Polka dots is a fun, cheerful and flirtatious pattern.  Polka dots have been around for ages but the actual term was born in England in the late 19th century when the polka music was gaining popularity.  And even though there was no actual connection between the dance and the pattern, the name “polka” stuck around.  In modern pop culture, the most famous association with polka dots was established with the 1960’s song “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” and while polka dots are used in fashion quite often, polka dot prints in interiors are not such a foreign concept.

Here are some examples of designers interiors using fun polka dots fabrics...
