Loving Mitered Stripes

What do you think about mitering stripes for pillows?  There's something about the graphic geometry that I really like.  When I was getting new things together for my family room 4 years ago, I showed my designer a photo of a Jonathan Adler Bargello pillow as an example of what I wanted.  The Adler pillows didn't come in colors that worked for me, so we walked through every showroom in Dallas trying to find fabric that would work.  It would be so easy to find now, but four years ago it just wasn't out there.  I ended up finding a stripe in great colors for my room and having the fabric mitered to create the punch I was looking for.  

To have this done, you have to have a very experienced seamstress.  To get the stripes to line up nicely is not easy.  I think these Etsy sellers have done a lovely job on their mitered pillows. 


I know I'm talking pillows today, but in my perusing of mitered fabric I ran across this mid-century ottoman.  How could I not share?
