If history has taught us anything, the checkered pattern is here to stay


For this generation, the checkerboard is a universal pattern for fun that offers a touch of softness in an otherwise dull and rigid world. Lula suggests that the next version be in the form of a labyrinth shape that overlays different geometries. It’s also a super accessible motif that anyone can easily replicate at home, whether it’s in Hollywood bathrooms or French kitchens.

MacKenzie-Childs’ Rebecca strongly encourages mixing patterns (scribbles, polka dots, harlequin diamonds, flowers, etc.) for a playful table setting, explaining how the original idea of ​​the Courtly Check was to juxtapose it with something truly feminine. . “It’s a creature in its own right,” she says. “He’s got a really big mouth, he comes out and yells ‘Look at me!’ but it was never really designed to stand alone.

No matter where you are, Daniel of Home Union argues that the checkerboard can work anywhere. “It’s timeless in the truest sense of the word,” he says. “You can put it in a super modern farmhouse or house that has no color, and then all of a sudden there’s a checkerboard in there.” Ultimately, it’s about finding your own way to do it.

“Checks have always been revered as something high and important in design,” concludes Rebecca. “I think checks have had a place in history that goes back further than history even remembers. What’s so fun about design is rekindling things and bringing them back to give them new views, new lives, new meaning and new references.
