12 Striped Homeware Pieces For Timeless Styling
Got a things for stripes? We've rounded up some of our favourite striped homeware that will stand the test of time in terms of style, quality and versatility.
One of our favourite things about striped homeware is that it never goes out of style. That, and they’re just so versatile.
Whilst stripes can come in endless combinations of colour and width and texture, their symmetrical nature lends to easy pairing that makes them effortless to incorporate into existing interiors.
Add colour and contrast to your breakfast table with a pinstripe linen tablecloth. A playful accent to a cosy nook with a chevron striped cushion. Or mix and match width and colour for an eye-catching clash that will instantly uplift any interior.
And if a day comes that you’re bored of where it lives, you can simply move the item to another room for a fresh new look. A tiger may not be able to change its stripes, but there’s nothing stopping you mixing up your home décor!
We could go on and on about what make striped homeware such a great home investment. For example, they even the power to redirect the eye and create the illusion of space, (vertical stripes can make a room feel taller and horizontal stripes a room wider). But to save you a lengthy essay on our enduring love for all things striped, we thought instead we’d compile an edit with some of our favourite striped home décor pieces.
So without further ado: 12 timeless stripe homeware pieces we challenge you to get bored of.
And as always, all our collections are ethically made by independent brands with every thought for the planet and people who make them.
