Plaid is a pattern that tends to err on the side of traditionalbut this year, we’re seeing a fresher, simpler take on the classic textile. 

 

Though plaid is something of a mainstay pattern in our fall and winter wardrobes, in the realm of interior design, it can sometimes come off dated. That said, this season’s take on plaid is modern and tonal, reading geometric rather than busy. Today on the blog we’re talking plaid, how professionals are using the classic pattern in their interior designswith some great samples from Kravet.

Two Ways to Design with Plaid

Current trendiness aside, plaid is one of those patterns that’s endured. In the realm of interior design, it’s not uncommon to encounter a plaid accent or two; perhaps in the form of a cozy throw blanket or an accent pillow. This fall and winter, the trend forecast calls for, not only more plaid but plaid-centric designs.

 

Plaid can be used as a jumping-off point in design or as a finishing touch. In the examples below you’ll see how plaid can be used in a large format way to make an impact or in a smaller way, to tie the colors from the rest of the room together.
