Checks, tartan, plaids, checkerboard – whatever you call this design style it still looks great, as you will discover in our new collection on Design Portal and Pinterest.
Celebrating the emblematic style of these grid-based designs, this collection proves just how versatile Checks can be.
Perfectly balanced, symmetrical lines add a structured and orderly feel to any interior design. But the beauty of Checks is found between the lines, with the geometric stylings enhanced through the use of colour.
From charming and intimate to bold and playful, Checks evolve through the meticulous combination of different colours.
Then there is everything from Harlequinn and Gingham to new contemporary Plaids and colourful Checkerboards, the versatility of Checks means it is a style that is here to stay.
Sue Farnell, our Archivist who is responsible for putting our Design Portal collections together, said, “Our designers have been pushing the boundaries with checks which has developed into this dynamic, contemporary collection with its roots firmly based in this long held traditional style.”
