Flame stitch has been making waves in the fashion and home decor industries since the 17th century, bringing a groovy mathematically-chic chevron-like print to everything from pillows to crochet knit dresses and scarves. This fun zig-zag look has spiked in trends lately, popping up on the runways and in all sorts of accessories, linens, and rugs. The stylish stitch was inspired by a needlework embroidery technique, and was named for a set of chairs bearing the design found in Bargello palace in Florence Italy. Hence the nickname Florentine flame stitch, and bargello waves. The impact of the chic look can vary from fashionably embellished to downright flashy, depending on the scale and color palette used. Missoni is a popular Italian fashion house brand known for their signature flame stitch inspired prints. When they came out with a designer line for Target, most items sold out within 24 hours and Target’s website crashed multiple times! Jonathan Adler, another one of our favorite home fashion muses, is also known for his love of the “granny gone wild” bargello style print. Here are a few of our favorite finds including the flame stitch look.
