The Design Element
This is certainly one of the least interesting trends, but none the less, it is a trend! And where there are meaningless trends, Design Metldown is sure to venture there. Besides, it finally floated to the top of the list sorted by number of samples. So If your thinking about having one big fat stripe across your background, check these sites out.
Some of them actually do some interesting things with the element. Most interestingly when they have the background stripe interact with the foreground of the site creating M.C. Escheresc illusions.
