A touch of Ikat

Blue Ikat lampshade by Pooky

A touch of Ikat

While too much ikat pattern in a scheme can make you go cross-eyed, I love a splash of it on lampshades and cushions.  The style is named after a classic Asian textile and it offers a brilliant way to add a slightly exotic flavour to a scheme.

Pooky.com, the new (ish) lighting brand sells a great range of ikat lampshades from £90 each.  For more shades – and a host of other accessories emblazoned with Ikat designs, also try oka.com.

For simple ikat-style fabrics by the metre, have a look at the Echo Collection by Baker Lifestyle, in particular the Bansuri range, available for £69 a metre from fabricsandpapers.com.

If cushions are what you are after, look at the range of Mariska Meijers cushions at amara.com.
