Welcome Back Blog Readers,
I hope all of you enjoyed the holiday season and the beginning of another New Year. We would like to thank you for the wonderful accolades on our Best of Boston Award! The Four Walls has always been well known for our fine wallcovering selection, however we would like to let you know that we also carry an extensive line of designer fabrics for upholstery and window treatments. That being said, today’s blog post features 2018’s current trend: Ikat.
Ikat is derived from the Malaysian word meaning “to tie”. Ikat is the technique of taking bundles of threads tied in segments, using resist-dye to create unique patterns. This traditional technique dates back centuries and have appeared in traditional and cultural textiles in many parts of the world such as Southeast Asia, South America, and the Middle East. The ikat pattern is very versatile because it can be used in contemporary or traditional interior applications in your home. It is also one of my personal favorites to obtain a sophisticated look!
Below are photos of some of my favorite selections:
Brave the cold and cabin fever and stop by to check out our designer fabric collections of 2018!
So as I always say folks, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!”
