Checkers for everyone and everywhere

Checkered patterns have made a comeback in a big way in the past year.

The nostalgic checkerboard pattern has made a big splash in fashion and interior design over the past year and it’s easy to see why. The ubiquitous pattern can seamlessly be incorporated into any style and any room from a boho eclectic living room to to a formal traditional bathroom. 

The trend can be incorporated in an impactful and temporary way through textiles and accessories. Checkerboards come in all colors and sizes, which makes this pattern fun to personalize to fit whatever aesthetic you’re after. The simplicity of the pattern also makes it attainable—whether it’s painted floors or a quilt, checkerboards are for everyone.
