We love when traditional textiles get a modern makeover – blending ancient craft with contemporary sensibility. It’s a look that catches the eye, and this year ikat is turning heads in both home decor and fashion. Rendered in updated bold, bright colors and showing up in unexpected places, we’re smitten by the juxtaposition of ikat pillows and textiles popping up in all decor styles ranging from modern to eclectic. Mind, we’re not advocating a room or wardrobe full of ikat (there’s something to be said for too much of a good thing), but as a fashionable accent to update your look for the season? Inspired!
