One of the most popular interior design trends for 2011 is Ikat fiber (pronounced ee-kaht). This versatile material is a series of geometric patterns that almost look tie-dyed. It provides a fuzzy look that offers a delightfully traditional backdrop to begin your interior design, according to The Daily Stamford.

Ikat is an ancient style of fabric weaving that originated in Indonesia. The design is made by weaving dyed yarn before it is made into specific patterns. There is no true style of Ikat, as the manufacturers can choose whatever color they'd like and create something unique.

The fabric may be a perfect way to upholster a sofa or to incorporate a brightly colored Ikat pillow with a dark hued couch. The stylish material lends itself perfect to neutral shaded window treatments and can be a wonderful starting point for your interior design dreams.

Roman shades could be the perfect complement to your Ikat design choices. The classic design is made of durable polyester, available in many styles and colors and is also available in a woven wood look. In addition, they are also available in an energy-efficient design called EnviroFusion shades, which contain cellular shade technology that provides additional insulation.
