ikat fabric uphostered chair

One of the trends for 2009 (a trend that started in 2008) is ikat prints (ikat = style of weaving that uses a resist dyeing process similar to tie-dye on either the warp or weft before the threads are woven to create a pattern or design). These black lacquer chairs were give a make over with a gorgeous Ikat fabric from Madline Weinrib.

If you would like to see more Ikat prints: Design*Sponge recently did a great roundup on Ikat.

  • I am in love with Ikat patterns,, This chair looks fantastic in this violet tone.
    Such a current pattern and color all in one.

  • These are great!! I work for an office furniture company and we sell stacking chairs http://www.ecomfg.com/ On a completely separate issue but one that is quite important, we make screens, panels and blinds for offices and because of the flame resistant qualities that are mandatory within the office environment, using any kind of fabric that does not have flame retardant qualities within the office is serious offence, contrary to the Health and Safety Executives guidelines, but one few people are aware of. It would be interesting to know the flame resistant qualities of the fabric!

  • Love the colour of the fabric, but can anyone tell me where these chairs were purchased or where you find chairs like this. I have the EXACT same chair but am looking for a matching one!
    Thanks so much!

  • Such a lovely pattern. Ikat celebrates its renaissance, interior design re-introduces these ethic textiles.

  • I bought a heap of unique ikat fabric for not only my chairs but for other future home decor projects from an online Indian store- as I could not resist the choice that was offered to me!! Yes, I am a hoarder!! If you know how to sew then you can save a lot instead of buying expensive designer chairs. I suggest you go for fabric and do it all yourself..it is worth your time.
