I’m at a loss to explain how this happens, but sometimes something that’s been around for a really long time suddenly feels very, very now. Case in point: channel tufting. Ever since Dabney wrote a post about adding channel tufting to your walls, I’ve been seeing it everywhere, and each example seems more perfect than the last. Here’s a little more channel tufting inspiration, plus our favorite furniture picks for getting the look at home.
A tufted, blush sofa paired with a colorful shag rug is just perfect in this interior in Light Lab, a creative studio and event space in Los Angeles.
This inspiring DIYed full-wall tufted bed by Brady Tolbert, Emily Henderson’s Editorial Director (and a designer in his own right) is seriously impressive. If you’re not as crafty as Brady, scroll down to see some shoppable options.
Channel tufting covers a wall at the Hotel Covell in Los Angeles, spotted on Sight Unseen. It’s especially nice paired with a swirly malachite wallpaper (which is especially fitting because this channel tufting looks a little like raw malachite).
A channel tufted banquette adds dark drama to the restaurant at the Paladian Hotel in Seattle, spotted on Lonny.
There’s something about a channel tufted headboard that just feels so luxurious. This bed, spotted on Style at Home, takes the expected vertical tufting and turns it on its side.
