In Love With Ikat? Here Are 9 Ways To Include It In Your Home

Up until a few years back, as a traditional textile, ikat fabric was mostly used for a sari or a dupatta. But not anymore! The stunning fabric has gained a great fan following in recent years and it’s now being used as an interior design element too.

If you love ikat like we do, we’re telling you everything about adding it to your house to make it look stunning, while also adding an ethnic vibe.

Catch hold of your local carpenter and get him to make you a vibrant ikat lampshade in cotton or silk to match your decor.  If you want the lamp to be funky, colour the body of the lamp in a totally different shade. For example, if your ikat shade is a bright pink, paint the body a dark green.

Where to buy in Delhi: Pick the ikat of your choice from Lajpat Nagar export market near Rampul, Lepakshi emporium (CP) or on Fabriclore. Then, head to Lok Nayak Bhavan or Panchkuian Road for fabrication of your lampshade. You can also accentuate it with lace and tassels.

An upholstered ikat headboard is an apt addition to brighten the ambience of the room and make it look aesthetically pleasing. As shown in the picture, you can match the ikat print of the headboard with the wall or vice versa. It’s best advised to engage a trustworthy upholster to carry out the job.

Ditch the regular coaster and make yourself a set of trivets. It’s fairly simple. Pick an ikat fabric of your choice and get it framed from a local frame shop. Voila! Your trivet will be ready to be flaunted on a side table, a cabinet or even your beautiful console.

Where to buy Ikat fabric in Delhi: KC Creations (Lajpat Nagar), Fabrics2buy, Nehru Place, The Fabric People, (Shahpur Jat), Central Cottage Industries Emporium (CP), Shankar Market and online on Jaypore.

Once you have the fabric of your choice in hand, go to a local painting-wallah to get the ikat framed in an appropriate size or shape.

Even though the robe in the picture is from Uzbekistan, you can make it on your own. Purchase some lovely ikat cloth from the market and a good printed fabric to go with it. Head to your local tailor and have it switched. To lend it a royal touch, get it framed in gold or silver. Hang it in the middle of your drawing room surrounded by miniature art in colourful small frames – like a unique gallery wall.

Where to get an ikat robe stitched: Shankar Market has some really talented tailors to do the job.
