Passion for Purple

Purple, purple, purple. It was one of my favorite colors as a child and then last year I noticed it had made a major reappearance in my wardrobe. Then I started to notice it appearing everywhere included in the home decor market. IKEA even introduced their Tullinge Lilac, Hovby Lilac, and Dansbo Lilac slipcovers for the Ektorp and Kivik sofa lines. We have always offered a Knesting Purple Twill option for our IKEA slipcovers. But when recently launching the new Dove Linen fabric option, it just screamed out that it wanted to share the floor with the deep purple shade. The new Dove Linen fabric is a soft shade of gray with just a hint of lavender and wonderful linen fibers woven in for great texture.

Here are a few photos from Style Estate showing how to pair the two colors for dramatic effect in both contemporary and more traditional settings.

Purple, lavender, lilac - whatever lovely shades you prefer, here is a collection highlighting the look featuring our slipcovers for the IKEA Ektorp sofa and chair models in Purple Twill and Dove Linen. Enjoy and design on!
