Love or Loathe? Ikat Sofas


Ikat textiles have been known since ancient times, but recently they have become a huge trend in decor and fashion. I know they are a fad, but I simply don't care! I love the vibrant, ethnic and playful pattern these fabrics bring. I have often used ikat pillows or accents in a room, but never done a whole sofa. I think the key is to be bold and pair it with other patterns in a smaller scale. 

Do you love it or loathe it?
What is your vote!

I guess it depends on the patterns and colors of the ikat fabric. The first one is too busy for my taste but the sixth one is gorgeous!

Have a good day, Allison!

Love it!

But I guess it's not for the faint of heart. And given the price of sofas, it might make more sense to buy a neutral sofa with an ikat throw pillow.
