Cool Crochet? Yes, It's Possible

I will be the first to admit that if I consider crocheted accents, “chic” is not the first term that springs to mind. My train of thought runs to tissue box covers and fluffy afghans. But using a savvy eye for design, crocheted accents can be a very stylish way to add color, pattern and texture to a space. Want evidence? Have a look at the illustrations below.
