IKAT GET YOU OUTTA MY HEAD.....


I remember reading a while ago how Ikat patterns were passe` and on their way out..........


hand-woven Ikat fabric cushions from Table Tonic


I beg to differ, as I am seeing them alive and well everywhere, from every home design magazine to the fashion runways. These cushions above are from an amazing Australian-based company run by a very gifted fellow blogger, Louise. She describes their offerings as "Global treasures for the modern Bohemian". Conveniently, she offers worldwide shipping. Her new blog happens to be one of my favorite reads these days. She is a former design director for several major design publications and boy, does she know her stuff! She is a big fan of color, a girl after my own heart.


If you haven't discovered her blog and shop (both called Table Tonic) you don't know what you're missing!

I am also digging her brightly hued Moroccan leather poufs and these feather Juju headresses....great eclectic touches for the home. Check it all out here!

Oh, love her style! I agree-- I don't think I am over Ikat either and think it is a great decor touch to a room!

So cool. If I had a dressing room I would definitely want that silver pouf in it!

I think the patterns are lovely. When we purchased and restored our craftsman bungalow I knew I'd never have to worry about passe again.

I really love ikat and it doesn't seem passé to me maybe because I don't actually see it in the shops around here much so I haven't tired of it. And the colours in those ikat pillows are so fresh and happy. : )
