Stripes might not be thought of as a bold or daring option when it comes to pattern — particularly when suzani, ikat and chevron patterns are topping the lists of tendencies. But a quiet grey and white stripe will catch your attention. Here’s a look at just how stripes dress up the chairs of the home. From broad stripes to narrow stripes and flat stripes to vertical stripes, here are striped seats of every variety.

The large back on those side chairs are emphasized by the large horizontal stripes. The stripes make them seats look more expansive.

Hint: A grey or beige and cream stripe is a fantastic option to upholster seats if you want to go impartial but you still want to include interest with a blueprint.


A matching pair of beige-on-ivory striped seats creates a classic, classy dining space.

The comfy seat in the corner is upholstered with a stripe fabric that runs vertically on the seat. The broader stripe pattern feels much more contemporary on this seat.

What a charming nook. These blue coloured seats feel lounge-y and will make the ideal reading place. The blue and white color palette adds a cottage style to the space.

The striped chair and matching ottoman match the lines of the ceiling beams over. And it’s the one blueprint in a sea of solids.

I adore these chairs! The yellowish, gray, and white color palette is beautiful.

Hint: Stripes are a classic pattern, and stripes operate nicely on a set of seats. However, a bolder blueprint — say an ikat — seems best. Too much of a strong pattern may overpower a room, and a special print feels one-of-a-kind if you see it merely on a single seat, rather than just two.

This contemporary striped seat features multicolored slender stripes. The chair works with the bohemian modern kind of the space.
