Above: Said to be inspired by wall paintings on cliffs in the Hidalgo region of Mexico, Otomi Coverlets at Laviva Home can be used as a bedspread, tablecloth, or furniture covering/upholstery fabric. Available in eight colors, they measure 6-by-5.5 feet; $345. Other sources for Otomi textiles include the Mexican Textiles Museum Store and Jacaranda Home.

Consider using Otomi Pillows (available in several colors for $150 each at Jacaranda Home) for a similar effect.
