When I visited Costa Rica a few years ago I came across a pineapple plantation and was stunned at how low to the ground they grow. Before then I hadn’t really thought about how they grew and just remember it being a staple of the fruit basket.
Well pineapples are definitely “in” this summer and will adorn many a table just as they used to in colonial times. Displaying a pineapple as a centre piece showed your rank and your wealth.
There are many fabrics which use this exotic motif- from tea towels to curtains to dresses and beachwear.
The pineapple trend is not one new to 2016, it has been trending for a few years now but the motif is now being used across the whole of interiors- from cushions, lamps, sheets, curtains, carpets to accessories. I even found a driftwood example!

Now am off to make a pina colada!
