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!
