One Singular Sensation!

Batik striped settee from Haven
Sometimes less is more.  In this case, one striking stripe is definitely more! When I was in New York last month I made sure to stop in the J. Crew bridal boutique to check out the decor -- I loved ever last detail, especially the bold striped settee.  Since returning I've been scouring Craigslist in search of the perfect piece to reupholster in this sensational striped style (say that three times).  I'm thinking chair BUT a headboard like Mr. and Mrs Spade's would create a fabulous point of interest in my bedroom.  Wide or thin, centered or off-set, I'm totally digging this trend....are you?

  1. LOVE these singular stripes! I recently found an antique bed painting with one bold middle stripe on Etsy and am obsessed with it- such a pretty effect.

  2. Adore this!! Rustic isn't necessarily my scene, but every. single. time. I see grain sack-style fabric on a Louis chair with a single stripe, I go a little weak in the news. It's just so classic!

  3. Wow!!! I absolutely LOVE these!!!!! xoxo

  4. Love it! I'm going to try a pillow first, a long pillow to center in my sofa first. Great, modern, fresh look.

  5. Nice! I'm really loving that amazing headboard.
