Initially, fabric prints were used to make beautiful clothing, it gave designers of what they saw in nature to imitate on a piece of cloth. Imagine the joy of such a creation during the initial years! It was only in early 60's when the delicate floral prints and patterns were used to decorate everything from, draperies, table cloth, cushions, curtains and furniture.
Now the prints on furniture and home decoration is a trend. We thank Designer Laura Ashley for gifting us a trend that continues to brighten our daily lives. Today, a little printed accent armchair is a must-have for every corner be it home or quaint cafes.
From vintage florals, botanical motifs, soft-geometrics, tie-dye & shibori techniques, decor possibilities with prints are limitless. Prints and patterns are a world of heaven for interior designers and house-proud home stylists.
Isn’t there something about patterns that just energizes the whole living room? What prints do to a decor is invaluable. They divert the eye from what is missing in your home and take centre-stage and that’s not the end of their role, they become conversation starters. There’s no room for awkward silences with rooms with prints in them. No surprise, cafes ride on them screaming for you to be social!
