Currently Coveting: Kantha Quilts

With the recent resurgence of a more laid back, bohemian style, I am ready to step back from my usual palette of cool whites and grays and embrace a warm, richly patterned look. I stumbled upon Kantha throws when shopping for bedding for my new place and immediately developed a serious design crush.

Made from repurposed saris from India, the textiles are available though a number of fair trade retailers online. Here are a few of my favorite inspiring images and finds:

  1. Emma from The Marion House Book uses a Kantha quilt as a finishing layer.
  2. Design Sponge featured this all white bed with a colorful quilt at its base.
  3. Justine Blakeney opts for a light Kantha in the summer months.
  4. Kantha quilt from the Family Love Tree; $190
  5. Kantha quilt available from Fossik; $150
