Extra-Fine Colourful Woven Planter Baskets from £31

'Stripes bring order and structure to a space and have the ability to redirect the eye. When incorporated into an interior scheme, they inject a dose of understated elegance and sophistication.' 

 

Deckchairs, tartan picnic rugs, beach huts, gingham tablecloths, lighthouses, circus big tops - it's no wonder that checks and stripes make us feel good.

"In mid-1800s, Queen Victoria dressed her son Albert in a sailor suit with bold stripes. It was then that stripes became associated with all things nautical. Half a century later, Coco Chanel borrowed the “marinière” look from sailors in the French Riviera and brought it to France. Henceforth, the world became obsessed with stripes."

Stripes and checks are classic and playful, and we're seeing them everywhere at the moment, from fabrics to fashion, to furniture, flooring, home accessories and wallpaper.

A thick Cabana stripe will add instant energy to a room, bringing a luxury interior design scheme right up to date. Chic pinstripes work the same sort of magic in a more understated way.
