At the European shows this year we saw ruffles in abundance. Large, small, finished edges, raw edges, one ruffle, tons of ruffles, just about any combination or construction was there and it was a key embellishment for all soft categories. Personally I love ruffles. They let you get in touch with your girlie side!
Whether it’s ruffled wool or shirred cotton the simple ruffle adds a ton of impact and texture to an otherwise plain item.
Love this bedding and the ruffles used to create a pattern on the coverlet and pillows. Who said ruffles had to run in straight lines?
Desert never looked so delicious!! Layers and layers of ruffles! The table looks like a cake.
You know a trend is at it’s zenith when it’s featured by Anthropology. This pillow is part of their Tuxedo ruffle bedding ensemble.
My good Friend Leigh Chandler of Papillion Linens has a fantastic selection of linen goods for the home, bedroom and baby. Her natural linen bedding is glorious and it has ruffles galore!
Leigh’s signature slip covered, ruffled bench was recently featured in the March issue of Country Living in a feature touting the resurgence of the “ruffle” in design and fashion. She also writes a great blog here.
It’s amazing what a little ruffled embellishment can do for a simple design!
So very simple – but I love it!
