Damascus, paisley and 8 more names of interior patterns that will come in handy

Liked the pattern, but you can’t repeat it in your interior because you don’t know what it’s called. Take a look at our list – you will surely find the answer in it.

1. Damascus

A popular pattern that is often found on curtains and wallpaper. Despite its complexity, it is quite recognizable and represents an elongated blossoming flower, sometimes framed by a rhombus. Appropriate mainly in classic interiors, in modern spaces it can be used either when the background and the pattern practically merge, or very dosed, for example, on decorative pillows or a small carpet. It is named after the capital of Syria, where fabrics with fancy floral ornaments were produced. 

2. Paisley

It is also called Indian or Turkish cucumber. Appeared in Persia and Iran, where it is called buta. Paisley is named after the town in Scotland where fabrics were made, inspired by craftsmanship in the English colonies. It also occurs in clothes. It looks like an elongated drop, drawn in contrasting colors, with a sharp end bent to the left or right. 

3. Chevron or Zigzag

Perhaps the most relevant ornament from our selection, which became the hero of many modern interiors last year. With it, walls are trimmed, evoking associations with mountains; it is often used on pillows, rugs, and carpets, even chests of drawers. The presence of floors with such an ornament visually lengthens the room.

4. Goose foot (“pied de coc”, “pied de bullet”, “dog tooth”, houndstooth, shepherd’s cage)

Familiar to us by clothes: often found in ponchos, jackets, and blankets. In houses, it looks elegant in the upholstery of chairs. It is undesirable to use this ornament on wallpaper, it can ripple in the eyes. Ideal for modern classics. 

5. Tartan, cage, or plaid

Scottish Cage is a classic of English interiors. Adds dimension and tranquility to the room. Looks good on the upholstery of upholstered furniture and curtains.

6. Meander

Greek geometric pattern, which is usually used for edging objects. Often found on carpets, lamps, and sometimes as a ceiling or wall plinth. Indispensable for interiors in the Mediterranean style. Available in black, navy blue, and gold.

7. Toile de Jouy

Subtle small pattern with pastoral plots, which is often found in French interiors. Appropriate in Provence-style rooms, especially in bedrooms and boudoirs.

8. Chinoiserie

This is not the name of a pattern but of a whole trend in art and interior design. It translates as “Chinese”. The motifs of medieval Chinese art were actively used in elegant interiors of the 18th century. These days you can buy wallpapers and fabrics with such patterns, they look like floral motifs with birds in pastel, but bright colors (light green, pink, gold) in medium and large sizes.

9. Ikat

A vague pattern resulting from unevenly colored threads. Came from the East. It is applied to carpets, decorative pillows, and bedspreads. It fits perfectly into ethnic interiors and boho style, in other cases it should be used very metered.

10. Patchwork
