Plaid is back. You can expect to see plaid on just about everything lately. From fall runway collections to products even like faucet handles and mirror bases, traditional plaid has made a retro comeback. Not only has plaid returned in the form of textiles and fabrics, it also now has a strong presence in the carpet industry.
At Barry Carpet, we have a variety of new and classic plaid designs that come in different colors, patterns and quality. Bellbridge has introduced a classic navy and off-white plaid in their new Loft collection, suitable to the tastes of both yuppies and hipsters. Fabrica has created a contemporary take on the classic Scottish plaid in their new Burberry collection. With an elevated cross stitch, this new age plaid has a dimensional texture, perfect for a room that requires warmth and durability. Several other brands, such as Couristan, Karastan and Nourison, carry wool and nylon plaids in a wide range of colors to suit palettes for any living spaces.
Architectural Digest notes that “plaid fabrics and furnishings add colorful flair to a room and can balance out contemporary accents with a touch of time-honored style.” Although plaid is classic, it isn’t exclusively reserved for traditional decorating. Instagram famous interior design couple, Syd and Shea McGee, known as “Studio McGee,” share their take on modern plaid: “We’re seeing plaids and checks come back in a big way! From furniture and window treatments to floors, walls, and textiles, the possibilities of bringing this trend to life is endless.”
