Earlier this year, we read that treillage was going to be a big summer trend. So we watched for it. It popped up a lot but that might just be because this pattern, whether used in large doses or as an accent, is a classic. See this oft outdoor design at work after the jump...
Wallpaper is a natural choice for the grid and symmetry of treillage. Actress Chloe Sevigny washes her entire entry
with Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis
(top). A bedroom in House Beautiful
opts for a subtle treatment
(left) and Bungalow8 goes for dark and bold
in the dining nook (right).
Another popular medium for treillage is fabric. Theholidaygirl928 put a photoshop mock-up
on flickr to test out the addition of trellis upholstered chairs. We sourced the fabric as Maime Bamboo Thatch
at Reprodepot. What do you guys think?
Treillage can make a relatively easy, albeit time-consuming, DIY. Check out the wardrobe door make-over
at Chez Larsson (above) and Jude's ambitious molding wall treatment
We see this pattern built into furniture a lot. West Elm's Overlapping Squares series
was the inspiration for Jude's molding project and Tfransen bought one of the chairs
for the kitchen (below).
Even our editors are climbing this design vine. AT:Chicago's own Sarahc recently accented her living room with Pottery Barn's Tile Jacquard Shower Curtain
. It may be meant for the bath but it looks great in the window!
