How many pins equals a trend?

I saw this slipcover over at I Suwanee last week, and I thought to myself I thought, Self?  You've seen that type of ribbon band somewhere before.

And sure enough, it joined some friend in the "upholstery" folder on my pinterest.

Yup.  Ribbon-banding seems to be the next new thing in upholstery and drapery.  Perhaps another comeback from the seventies?  My aunt apparently tricked out some white curtains with yards and yards of grosgrain ribbon back in the day.

Interestingly, when I was searching for additional examples, I found an awful lot of photographs of rubber band chairs. This one is actually kind of cool.

  1. Very cool. So is the stripe down the center of each piece a different fabric that's been railroaded together? I'm so curious. It's definitely a fun look.


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
