hot interior trend: ikat

I know that the ikat trend has been covered extensively on interior blogs in the past (which is no bad thing), but it’s having a mini revival this season… and since I haven’t mentioned it before, I hope I’m forgiven for posting about it. This method of dying fabrics, used in numerous countries around the world, has become a favourite amongst both fashion and interior designers, and it’s easy to see why. I really like it’s “bohemian” appeal, and can be really striking either in an otherwise plain room or alongside other prints. If you haven’t seen or heard of it before, it’s one of those things that you’ll now suddenly notice everywhere! Are you a fan of ikat designs, or do you think they’ve had their day?
