If you’ve been reading us for a while, you should know by now how important I feel the smallest details are in creating a successful an interior design result. You might have the grandest vision in the world for your home, but it’s the focus on the minutia that distinguishes the high end from the run-of-the-mill.

That’s why when I come across information about a certain dying or weaving technique (for example), I feel it’s my duty to bring it to you. That’s the kind of stuff you’re not gonna get schooled on when you buy your furniture at Ikea.

Enter Ikat.

Ikat is a dye technique used to make textile patterns that happens before the weaving and even the primary dyeing process.

Using Ikat patterns can give just that extra touch you need to help your interior design cross over into true high end luxury.
