Custom Ikat Roman Shades & Window Blinds

For your Living Room, Bedroom, Kitchen & Beyond

Whether you are looking for a bold window treatment to serve as a statement piece to your otherwise minimalistic interior – or – an eye-catching addition to live up to a maximalist vibe, Spiffy Spools’ ikat roman shades collection will see you there. 

Our ikat roman blinds are inspired by a legacy that dates back to the 19th century; the times when the masterful craftsmanship of the Netherland Indies [present-day Indonesia] caught the attention of Dutch scholars to hit the zenith of a textile renaissance in Central Asia. Simply put, the term ikat refers to the resist-dyeing technique used to create designs in the yarn before they are woven into the cloth. The craftsmanship involved in this technique demands a high level of precision, patience, and intensive labor, and the result is a beautiful fabric singing songs of elegance and culture.  

Textile enthusiasts have always loved the impeccable visual feel of ikat patterned roman shades, but it’s more topical than ever. When it seems like everything is mass-produced, the authenticity and craftsmanship of ikat bring a feeling of discerning taste into the spaces it adorns. 

Traditional ikat was played majorly around three colors – red, yellow, and blue. Not anymore; any interior designer will tell you today. Modern ikat brims with a multitude of colors and stunning patterns that are bound to bring exuberance to your home.

Most ikat-patterned fabrics feature fairly simple patterns, but you can find intricately detailed, impressively sharp patterns as well. Choose whatever you may, the depth of visual interest our ikat roman shades offer is as good as a dreamy melody. 

Reasons to Choose Ikat Roman Shades

  • Ikat is ideal if you want to introduce a hint of tradition into your contemporary home. The stunning motifs of ikat prints are especially well suited to complement spacious interiors. Our ‘Fresno’ ikat print roman blinds, for instance, with their brilliant patterning and color palette promise to adorn large-sized, modern, or traditional open-plan rooms beautifully.
  • Lean towards a fabric with more intricate patterns if you are looking for a subdued but sophisticated presence in a ‘grown-up’ room. Point in case, Spiffy Spools’ ‘Valle Central’ window blinds in earthy shades that brim with attention-getting flair and complement a wide range of decorative schemes.
  • For a sense of movement and depth in your fabric, nothing truly comes close to an ikat. All our custom roman shades serve a heightened level of detail to highlight the blur effect that the patterns offer. Check out the bold and gracious ‘Charta’ window blinds featuring an all-over diamond pattern complemented by a stunning color palette – a timeless elegance.
  • If your interior happens to be a blend of neutral tones, and you are looking to infuse a hint of excitement into your decor, then we recommend something like our ‘Honeyed Fig’ window blinds in hues of antique gold and rust orange lending an autumnal charm to your windows.

Top Tips to Style your Home with Ikat Roman Shades

Spiffy Spools’ diverse collection of ikat roman shades resonates with many home styles. We hold expertise in customizing the ideal roman blinds to match your decor – always keeping your taste at the forefront. Here are some top suggestions from our expert stylists on how you can decorate your home with ikat roman shades.

Select Scale with Forethought: Roman shades’ flat frontage shows the bold ikat in its full energy. Hence, bear in mind the size of the room as well as the window when you finalize the pattern. Typically large and medium-size windows can bring out the best of large-scale ikat pattern shades. Small windows will likewise profit from the smaller prints. Let the pattern size also be in tandem with the size of the room. And you’ll never go wrong with this lovely pattern.

Solid Backdrop: As is the case with all patterns, but more so with the bold ikat, solid walls are recommended for backdropping ikat roman shades. Patterns command attention, so give them their own rightful space by letting them be center stage on a plain, preferably neutral wall. 

Compatible Patterns: Patterns, when used in correct balance draw the home to a chic personality. However, caution should be employed when introducing patterns to a space. First of all, limit them to three in a small room and stretch it only up to five even in a larger space. Secondly, be careful with the selection of patterns to go with ikat. Plaids, polkas, stripes, chevrons, and florals enjoy a long friendly relation with this traditional pattern. Stay tuned to the overall color palette of the room and you will have a perfectly designed beautiful home.

Fold Style: Spiffy Spools’ roman shades come in three styles of which we recommend the back-slatted roman shades and relaxed roman shades for ikat patterns. Both these styles lend zero visual breaks on the frontage and can provide an undisrupted surface for ikat to shed its mojo. Back-slatted shades have straight bottoms and are sturdy, and easy to operate while the relaxed shades have scalloped bottoms and need to be manually helped to form the folds each time they are opened.

Exotic traditional motifs have a cultural value to them and those who find that an asset cannot walk past ikat. Whichever of the truly enamoring fabrics you choose from our collections, be assured that you’re signing in for a showstopper. So go on and browse our collection.
