Decorative painting by Mark Chamberlain
Last week we looked at the history behind flame stitch, and since then I keep seeing the pattern everywhere I look! Flame stitch may be a thousand years old, but it can be a surprisingly fresh and fun element in a room. Here is a roundup of ways you can incorporate the look into your own home.
Rugs, walls, pillows, even cocktail shakers: there are many ways to add either a big or small dose of flame stitch to your interior. You can also look in fabric stores for flame stitch patterns that you can use as table linens or drapery. With Missoni Home coming to your local Target, flame stitch just might be having its best year ever!
