Sometimes classic and timeless looks aren’t just safe. They can be made “new” again and produce a bold exciting effect.
So is the case with black and white stripes.
I originally noticed these stripes transformed in a hip and unique way on this chair at Juxtaposition.
Then Carrie transformed these same stripes into a gorgeous work of art on her new DIY Ballard Designs bench.

This classic look is so trendy right now. I’ve starting seeing it quite a bit in well designed modern places. I noticed chairs upholstered with this fabric at a restaurant in Hollywood (Sorry I didn’t have my camera!) and saw it everywhere at the Artisanal LA event yesterday. Here are a few pics from Artisanal LA:
I have to have some of this. I can’t wait to use it and make a bench like Carrie’s. (–And special thanks to our reader, Rose, who informed us that you can buy the large black and white striped fabric at iKea!)
I am on a mission now to finish up all my other projects so I can justify starting this new bench project!
