1 Rug, 10 Ways: Gradation Ticking

Striped woven cotton rugs have always been a core part of the Dash & Albert line. These rugs are adaptable foundation pieces that can be used in a wide variety of spaces in a whole range of styles.

Our Gradation Ticking rug is about as versatile as they come: A neutral area rug, featuring a variegated stripe in shades ranging from cream to taupe and gunmetal, Gradation Ticking works in all types of homes. It’s also at home in every style of room, including a coastal bunk room and a farmhouse kitchen. See how these decorators and influencers use Gradation Ticking in different rooms:

When designing bathrooms clean, simple lines and a light, bright palette are always a winning combination. In this bathroom by Linda Sonders Design, Gradation Ticking brings a welcome dose of pattern to the white-on-white space.

Susan, the blogger behind Saw Nail & Paint, is known for her secondhand furniture makeovers. This calm corner is typical of her “cozy, light and bright cottage” style. Gradation Ticking’s stripes style more country when they’re paired with painted, vintage furniture.

When Decorator Wendy Mauro swapped out a vintage rug for a large Gradation Ticking in her living room a few years back, she said it instantly gave the space a lighter more casual vibe. The light stripes were a perfect foil to her red-toned wood floors and a butter-y leather couch.

For a Cape Cod beach house, designer Casey Sanford opted for subtle New England style, including our Gradation Ticking rug, chunky woven basket, and a round mirror.

Gradation Ticking appears in a Nantucket retreat by Anne Collard Design. In this bunk room,  the seaside look is extremely understated–minimalist, even. Three quiet stripe patterns appear on the blankets, the wall paneling, and the Gradation Ticking rug – giving the all-white bunk room texture and nautical style.

Atlanta-based Jessica Bradley Interiors used a Gradation Ticking runner to add pattern underfoot in this gunmetal gray butler’s pantry. The woven cotton rug adds a touch of comfort and softness to a hardworking space.

Lilly Gianikas Interior Design in Nashville made the most of this narrow porch with a pair of chairs and an occasional table set atop a Gradation Ticking rug. The stripes of the rug and the pillows mimic the lines of the privacy screen to make the space feel cohesively designed.

Caitlin Creer, one of the founders of Foundation Goods in Salt Lake City, is a master of mixing old and new. In this eclectic space, Gradation Ticking takes center stage beneath a rustic pedestal table, while a vintage rug laid parallel adds a pop of bright color.

Renee Beamer of Harbor & Home was aiming for a modern farmhouse vibe in her kitchen renovation. The Gradation Ticking runner picks up on the gray, white, and natural palette and adds pastoral vibe to warm up the stainless appliances and sink.

According to interior designer Andrew Flesher, there is no more classic combo than florals and stripes. Says Flesher, “The two are natural allies, contrasting soft curves with structured lines for a pairing that’s simply unforgettable.”
