Artisanal Products Taking Homeware By Storm
Ikat Cushions. The Trend charming the world.
Since Matthew Williamson moved to the beautiful village of Deià in Mallorca and fell in love with traditional artisanal Ikat fabrics, the Ikat trend has become the new best-kept secret for those who follow new Fashion Design & Home Trends. He initially designed a fashion collection inspired by Deià and went on to create his own homeware collection where you can find Ikat fabrics with their lovely texture & bright colours. These stunning fabrics are the end result of a wonderful & elaborate creation process which is mastered by a few artisanal families who have passed on this craft for generations. Owning these items makes one cherish them even more due to the attention to detail and passion for the island´s traditions that lies behind each of them.
Some design trends take over the homeware industry with such force that we end up with extremely similar homeware styles. Regardless of how appealing some of these trends or styles are, some of us are left with the desire to make our homes a bit more unique with items that are not found in every Social Media Blog out there! Items created with Ikat fabrics bring that element of uniqueness to our homes. The quality of the fabrics (70% cotton 30% linen) and the exquisite patterns are the reason some of the most exclusive design-led boutique hotels around the world have started to showcase these beautiful & unique products.
A very inexpensive and impactful way of transforming a living space is by adding beautiful & unique cushions (the more the better!). Then, reintroducing the same fabric and/or colour in the form of table runners, table mats, curtains or lamp shades. We absolutely love the combination of either the Mondrago Olive Ikat Cushion or the Aucanada Olive Ikat Cushion with the Plain Olive Ikat Cushion. Adding at the Mondrago Olive Table Runner to the dining table creates a beautiful & unique flow that you are not likely to find elsewhere. The Sky Blue Collection is another absolute favourite!
