Striped Seating

We begin with seating, as upholstery is a great place to introduce black and white patterns. This season stripes are making a big comeback, thanks to an array of eye-catching designs from CB2. Below we see the Tropez Black and White Stripe Sofa, the creative vision of designer Ceci Thompson. Resort style is alive and well:
