4 Could it be magic?
A more striking way to rock the polka-dot look is to layer it with other patterns. Designed by Young & Battaglia for Mineheart, this Monochrome Magic Rug offers a contemporary twist on the traditional Persian rug and is made from digitally printed, tufted polyamide.

5 When grey isn’t dull
For a more fun take on the trend, consider this cushion from The French Bedroom Company. A seemingly innocuous grey-and-white polka-dot pattern is scattered with miniature characters courtesy of Emily Humphrey, the artist behind Ted Baker’s trademark florals. Made from 100 per cent cotton satin and filled with an ethically sourced duck-feather inner pad, the cushion features a contrasting floral pattern on its reverse.
