Who knew this funky popular 60’s design originated in Italy with a line of chairs. The Bargello castle in Florence, Italy housed these beautiful patterns first designed by Hungarian stitchers in the 17th century. The long lines work perfectly for needlepoint pillows and prove to be a challenging stitch.
Pillows work as a perfect canvas to express these Bargello designs and beautiful colors. The needlepoint patterns often mimics a wave or flame but of course more geometrically in needle point. I have been working on designs that utilize colors that will work in a modern home but pay homage to the beautiful art form.
The image below shows the antique version of Bargello in a wall covering.
Add some spice to your room and get stitching with these designs. These pillow designs can be found on Needle Paint. They work well alone or paired together. The colors can be changed out to accomodate your room or season. The color pallette I chose for this pairing is a fall medley.
Stay tuned for new designs from Needle Paint! We have been at the drawing board and will have something new for you each week!
