5 Checkered and Plaid Furniture Ideas for the Home

Printed and patterned furniture may be fun and playful, but sometimes it can transform your home into a time-warped mess. Instead, find pieces that are bold and stylish without all the antiquity. Believe it or not, checkered and plaid furniture ideas can spruce up, jazz up and modernize even the most dull and drab of corners.  If you look many interior design pictures you will notice a combination of single color pieces combined with patterned accent pieces whether they are pillows or larger furnishing pieces.  This is a standard practice to give a room some pizazz while not overdoing too many colors which can make a room distasteful.  Let’s take a look at some fresh ideas!
