According to the WSJ, chintz is back. To be perfectly honest, I never really thought it was “out”. My grandmother is the classiest and most stylish lady I know, and a chintz sofa has always reined supreme in her living room. I think the pattern may have gotten a bad rap in the 80’s when more was more, and pastel chintz on chintz was done just down right wrong. I prefer a more chinoiserie-chintz pattern paired with a modern motif, like a chevron fabric or leopard print rug.
So what’s your opinion? Most people seem to either love or hate the pattern!
