Black and White Stripes – Classic Now Contemporary

24 Oct

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!
