Black and white stripes have been teasing me for years to use them in my many apartments. After failing on many attempts including a small rug from Ikea that remained in my closet for about a year and a half, I think I've finally come to accept black and white stripes for they best use: as a room anchor. Whether under a coffee table, painted on chairs, or thrown over a bed black and white stripes add a sense of youthfulness and bohemian quality to any room. File this one under my next project.
