Think of how many things in your home are held together with that versatile material, thread. No doubt it's in your textiles, your pillows, furniture, rugs and more. We love the trend we've noticed about celebrating thread's lovely aesthetics in art and accessories.

Often colorful, thread and string have been popping up in interiors in more decorative, rather than just relegated to functional, ways lately.
