I love Treillage 

Whether it's to bring a garden-look indoors or to create walls of airy chic, I’m obsessed with the lattice pattern or lattice inspired furniture.

The original lattice was used in hot Middle Eastern countries to keep the sun out and allow air to flow. Treillage can be traced back to the 12th century in Europe when used to support the vines growing on French farms and later in the 17th century in the formal gardens of Versailles.

At the turn of the century, decorator Elsie de Wolfe re-introduced Treillage. In the 1930s lattice, combined with chinoiserie elements and bamboo, found a glamorous reinvention in the Hollywood Regency Style.
