The pattern has long lived in the design world and is gaining momentum in the weddings world too. Earlier this year, Scalamandré and Lenox partnered to release a line of china and home goods exclusively for Bloomingdales. Sure enough, the famous Zebra & arrow pattern made its way onto plates (the pattern had been available sometime as wallpaper, fabric, pillows, umbrellas, scarves, dog beds, yep, dog beds - you name it, they likely have it) and now I can't wait to style a table setting with it!
While browsing the latest issue of Washingtonian Bride & Groom this morning, I noticed Design Army include this china pattern in their "The Color Theory" article. Love it! And earlier this week, 100 Layer Cake featured an adorable Wes Anderson-inspired wedding amazingly designed and crafted by the gals at Bash, Please. Guess what pattern they used for their client's invitation liners? Love.
So while certainly not a new inspiration (countless blogs and designers have raved about it for years), I'm just officially going on the record for team zebra. I just love how kitchy and fun this pattern is and I'm a huge fan of big and bold statement patterns. What's currently catching your eye?
