From Quaint Quilted Furniture to Quilted Steakhouse Menus

 - Dec 19, 2011
Remember the days when the only place you'd see quilted creations or patchwork products was draped over your grandmothers couch or in dusty second hand shops? The times have changed for the pattern, as it is now a token of opulence and an embellishment you want to add on everything from wristlets to walls.

Long ago, Chanel made it a one of their signatures to have quilting on their must-have handbags and posh packaging but it seems like only now is the rest of the world strongly following suit. From iPad covers to sneakers, everything is getting the soft-stitch treatment to upgrade its look from basic to ultra-luxury.

Whether it's studded with pearls to mark the diamond-shaped segments or melded together in a haphazard fashion, quilted creations are the new comfortable sign of couture.
