Understanding The Different Types Of Stripe Pattern

The Classic Stripe - This type of stripe can consist of narrow, medium and thick bands of stripes against a contrasting background. This type of stripe will have a repetitive pattern repeat but are the most adaptable and work well in any space. A bonus to this type of stripe is that it is always in fashion!

Explore our Ayon Classic Striped Collection.


The Pinstripe - Pinstripe patterns consist of very thin lines that are often in close proximity to one another. This type of stripe is often associated with suits and their smartness and therefore is a more popular choice for formal rooms. Think of using this pattern in an office or even a hallway, depending on what type of feel you are trying to create for newcomers.

Multi-Stripe - Multi-stripe patterns include lines of varying thicknesses and a varying repeat. This type of stripe is often used in infant or young children's bedrooms due to its fun personality. We recommend a multicoloured design to add an element of fun to your children's rooms!

Take a look at our Luther Collection for inspiration.


Alternative Stripe - For a stronger statement in a room we recommend using a type of alternative stripe! This type of stripe is a modern take of a classic and uses different tones, materials and can include chevrons, brushstrokes and other patterns within, creating a new and exciting pattern. We are loving the look of an alternative stripe in a dynamic lounge or conservatory!

Our Persia Aztec Collection is the perfect collection to embody the alternate stripe, check it out.
