I’m starting to see a stronger reference to the art of knitted and crocheted homewares being used in domestic interior trends, are you?
I remember the days back in my childhood when my mum taught me to knit and my grandmother taught me to crochet. My mother (now deceased) was never idle…. if she was watching TV (a rarity) she was knitting as well…. you get the picture. Knitting…. 5 years back I may have thought was a lost art, some may even think it today but no I think it’s back. You only have to dig deep into that recycled, vintage, home made interior bent that I was talking about to see that knitwear woman’s fashion isn’t the only thing that is making a come back. As pictured above our interiors now have the opportunity to be graced with yester years homely memories in the form of knitted cushions, lampshades, cable throw rugs, bedspreads, place mats, upholstery, floor rugs and more.
All I know is sometimes its nice to look back and reclaim some of those beautiful memories surrounding the skills learnt and passed down through the generations and implement them in a new way to create a new look for our current generation of interiors. I know I will be teaching my kids how to knit.
Have you implemented any knitted furnishings into your current home decor? I’d love to see pictures or hear about it…..
