I kind of agree with my blog friends who say that burlap is overrated for upholstery fabrics. I mean, honestly, it is scratchy and itchy.  But I still love the look of it, and darned if I don't go for style over comfort every time!  But I was thrilled to see all of these projects that use burlap where you don't actually have to sit on them to use them .... it takes the discomfort out and leave the style in:

And I can't help including these next few that you DO have to sit on to use ... they might be uncomfortable, but they sure are stylish:

I LOVE burlap! It's charming & inviting. May not want it as my bedspread but I adore it in small doses around the house. I think that it is a great way to mix up your home's decor on a budget but it's just a friendly look - and I love that!! Great post, Stacy!

Wow! That was a burlap extravaganza! I love the texture of burlap but the feel outweighs any potential benefit, in my humble opinion.

Love. Love. Love burlap! It's on my dining room table, on all the beds as bedskirts, and in a few rooms as curtains. It's chic without costing a fortune and perfect for little boys!

still love burlap in all regards except as a seat cushion. as one who wears a lot of black it is not a good mix. but with your inspiration here there is so much i had not thought of.

thank you for such an inspiring post!

I do like the warm look, but wouldn't select it for upholstery or cushions because it's so scratchy and because of the lint. I do love all of those little accessories you've highlighted. Especially those Christmas tree birds. how adorable!

I love it! As a table runner, pillow, curtains, YES! I don't want to sit on it or sleep under it, but you can still get the same color with softer fabrics. I love the look!

I have to say there isn't an image you showed that I don't love. That said, I couldn't live with it, for all the scratchy reasons! It is so wonderfully textural and earthy -- something so genuine and unadorned about it. I just wish it were soft!

You know, I like it when I see it in images but its just not my style! I love color and pattern! We have similar posts, I just uncovered some mid-century decorating books that have lots of pictures of things that are supposedly "over". Stop by and weigh in when you can!

A beautiful post and so creatively presented.
I also agree about the discomfort of the fabric in seating.
Have a burlappy week

I can't believe this I have a post on burlap. It is from a different angle than this, but it is about burlap. I can not believe how many times you and I think alike, I really think we were seperated at birth, only problem with that thought is I think I am old enough to have given birth to you. Maybe you are the daughter I never had,hehe!!! Great post sweetie, beautiful images, Kathysue

The look of burlap is nice, but my child is allergic to the fabric, so I have to be careful how I use it in my home. Linen is my absolute favorite and I enjoy using that instead!

I'm in love with burlap...not on furniture but as a decor item. We used it throughout my entire wedding and I use burplap runners on tables all the time.
Great post :)

Veronica said...
