MOODBOARD: IKAT INSPIRATION FROM RUNWAY to YOUR HOME

Tenun Ikat or known as Ikat have been an inpiring for some Indonesian fashion designers like Poppy Dharsono and Stephanus Hamy. Looking at their beautiful designs I am inspired to do some moodboard with Ikat interpretation. It's so exciting doing some online research for applying Ikat for interior. Here are my Ikat moodboards.


There are no limits to ways of applying Ikat beautiful fabrics as they come in various patterns and colors. Ikat fabric always adds an elegant, cheerful touch to a design or suggests far away travels, and it creates a beautiful focal point in any room. The beauty of Ikat is that it takes on a life of it’s own. No other colors can be used in the space, and when an Ikat pattern is introduced, the room completely changes.  It creates a striking space! Framing gorgeous scarves or fabrics, can be a great way to introduce color and interest to a room. Ikat can be used in small doses, and still make an impact. A little goes a long way! Amongst simple fabrics, Ikat fabrics can be quite the accent piece.

  1. I love ikat! I am doing a post on it on my blog soon as well. It is very popular in the high end fabric showrooms at the D&D building in Manhattan.
