The Ikat Fabric look in Interior Design

Ikat Fabrics Ikats have been around for several centuries. It is rare when something that was developed so long ago becomes so popular in modern times. The word “ikat” means “to tie” or “to bind”. This describes the process and also the fabric itself.

Even though, many of today’s Ikats may not be “true” in the sense of how the fabric is constructed, the pattern lives on and is easily recognized when used as a pattern in interior design.

In this day and age where everything seems to be focused on the next “big thing” or the new trend, the ikat will always be regarded as a classic and timeless element of design.

Here some beautiful furniture pieces and pillows by Madeline Weinrib  with her signature Ikat design fabrics:

There are no limits to ways of using Ikat beautiful fabrics as they come is various patterns and colors. Ikat fabric always adds an elegant cheerful touch to a design or suggests far away travels and create a beautiful focal point in any room.

My Favorite Wing Chairs!

A wing chair is a tall-backed, heavily upholstered easy chair with armrests and large "wings", or "lugs", mounted to the armrests and enclosing the head or torso areas of the body to protect against drafts. They first appeared in the late 17th century—when the wings were sometimes known as “cheeks”—and they have maintained their popularity through a series of revivals ever since. Often they form part of a set, or suite.

Now days, they still have the wings but they come in all shapes, sizes, materials and looks.

Which one is your favorite?
