I'm so into the symmetry of this room with its double poufs and double arm chairs, all tied together with that playful daybed.

Simply the most popular home design trend that we've seen to date is the classic dark and light, crisp influence of Mud Cloth textiles. It's generated the most views of any of our trend posts in the past year, so, after we experimented with Dark Florals, this was the next design trend we chose to explore in a capsule collection with Amazon: The Mud Cloth Collection for living room and bedroom. Jump below for a walk through of our new collection with Cloth & Company that is INSPIRED by Mud Cloth and pulls the theme across a small collection of home furnishings for every room (brief history of mud cloth here). It's all available for purchase and can be in your home in just a few short days (thanks to the magic of Amazon's free lightning speed shipping).

A lot of the Mud Cloth we've seen has been black and white, such as this classic example from Sarah Sherman Samuel, but Christiane really helped us break out of this mold in this collection with some fun new colors.

If you're curious how and why we jumped into this collaboration, let us tell you about this new venture and how it has the potential to innovate for your home. And after you get a sense of our inspiration for these two collections (I mean, just look at that beautiful Mud Cloth in the pic above!) check out the pieces below.

You can shop all the furniture on Amazon along with its complementary accessories. Everything in these photos and on the online store has been especially curated just for you by our Apartment Therapy editors.

I LOVE these dining chairs. I know I'm not supposed to pick favorites... but I think this shape with this pattern might just be mine.

We used the framing resource Artfully Walls for all the prints in the showroom. Christiane made the selections and they turned them around in no time!

Pattern-on-pattern can work so well when it's done right. This lion block printed pillow adds an unexpected element to the room without making it look too busy.

Shop the Living Room:

Those fabulous framed prints strike again! I love the way this bright print contrasts with the drama of the dark walls.

We had so much fun putting this collection together alongside Cloth & Company, and we hope you like it. It's available for three short months on Amazon just in time for any spring refreshes you're planning at home. Take a look, do some shopping, and let us know what you think in the comments...
