The Vintage French Stripe


While I still have images of France swirling in my head, I thought I would share my obsession with vintage grain sacks. . . I know, this sounds a bit odd but like almost everything else French, vintage grain sacks can look so chic and so relaxed - a combination I love! They remind me of all the amazing boulangerie in France and something about the faded, simple stripes is just so appealing and so timeless. Here a few of my favorite picks, as I think a vintage French stripe is a welcome addition to almost any interior!

Striped feed sack pillows by Wisteria.

Free Trade Pouf by Urban Outfitters.

These hand painted Mag Bulletin boards from Oh My Goodness on Etsy are inspired by grain sacks!

A French bench in a natural wood finish from Wisteria - it would be wonderful in an entry or at the foot of the bed.

Feed sack from Simply French Vintage via Etsy - perfect for a DIY project. 

The Cabana chair from Urban Outfitters - love the mix of the industrial lines of the metal chair with the stripe seat! 

Lastly, a bedroom by designer Carolyn Espley Miller for her young son. The whole room is an homage to the vintage French stripe! I espceially love the weathered wooden shades painted with one set of stripes! {Image via House Beautiful}
