Said if before... I love a good IKAT.

What is an IKAT, one might ask... Good question.

Wikipdia says:
Ikat, or Ikkat, is the method of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft fibres.
The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric pattern or design.
So if that is still leaving a bit of confusion, just look...  I think the definition above just translates to gorgeous.

Here is one of the many beautiful area rugs designed by Charlotte Moss for Stark Carpet, just the most wonderful way to liven up any dull room...

Next is this fabulous collection presented by Donghia.  Just the most traditional of designs updated in such a modern fashion with its slight modernization of design, but also the sexy color ways they offer.

Lastly, what better way to introduce a bold fabric into a room but in small contained quantities.  These pillows done by Bermingham & Co is the perfect baby step into the world of pattern!
