By Lisa Peck, ASID
Traditional fabrics from all over the world are influencing interiors design. Africa is one area that is rich in traditional patterns and methods that can have a modern look or lend themselves to a contemporary interior.
Here are some traditional fabrics and quilts.
And here are some contemporary fabrics and rugs that I think draw inspiration from these traditions.
