We’ve been fans of stripes ever since childhood when we spotted our first zebra. To us, the rest of the zoo–even the stately giraffe and the proud peacock–couldn’t make an entrance quite like the ultra cool zebra. Decked out in bold black and white stripes, this patterned horse of sorts delivers a design lesson straight from Mother Nature that all it takes to make visual impact is to toe the line. Stripes have always been a classic favorite from nautical looks to country ticking. Now, they’re stepping into the spotlight by taking a more contemporary spin.
Duralee gives this armless sofa lots of swanky style with mile-wide stripes created with two fabrics sewn in a vertical repeat stripe.
TUUCI’s Exuma cabana delivers a touch of Old Hollywood glam as it add lines of yummy color to the landscape.
Stripes are also an easy way to give floors a modernist sensibility. Our Adura® Vibe luxury vinyl tile (shown here in Graphite, Cocoa and Flax), installed in contrasting hues and pattern direction, creates visual interest in a subtle, sophisticated way; adding another layer of dimension to the overall room design. This is a textural tile so you can feel (as well as see) the stripes.
Now’s the time to break away from the blahs. Stripe things up!
