While on a recent visit to the many fabric houses that we have in Melbourne, I started to ponder the Flame Stitch. It appears to be the next Ikat in popularity.
Call it Chervron, Zig Zag or Flame Stitch, either way this stunning pattern answers a lot of decorating briefs.
The style started as a needlepoint embroidery stitch and the name originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello palace in Florence, which have a “flame stitch” pattern.
Wallpaper in Flame Stitch is a lovely way to add the wow rather cheaply. A rug in an array of colours can be stunning in a minimal sitting room. One chair in this design amongst other plain furnishings can get people talking.
