Reminiscent of Missoni’s, well, almost everything, the flame stitch is once again having a moment. An endless array of color combinations and various forms of geometric interpretations make for an appealing focal point. As a wallpaper (like the one pictured below), or reinvented as a rug, or even just pieced in with a great decorative tray or throw, the flame stitch pattern is both visually stimulating and practical. It has been around for a thousand years and is as relevant and usable as ever. Whether splurging for Missoni or opting for a more affordable option, why not use a new flame stitch element as the color inspiration for a room overhaul?!
