Plaid is a classic pattern that goes great in rustic décor styles. It bespeaks of hunting coats, farmer’s shirts and warm blankets thrown over sofas in cottages. The photo above shows just how well plaid goes with rustic accents like distressed tables and natural décor pieces.
And yet, plaid doesn’t have to be just for rustic or country styles. The beauty of plaid is just how versatile it is. When given wild colors and more abstract prints, plaid can look more artsy, whimsical, updated and modern. The chair above shows just how well a mid-century modern chair can wear a plaid pattern. A chair like this could go in a child’s room, be part of an overall bright color scheme or act as an accent against a more neutral or muted color scheme.
