Fresh Fabrics January 20, 2017
Sure, it’s the dreariest time of year but that doesn’t mean your home has to be gloomy. Now is the perfect time to add a bit of pop to your space and one of our favorite ways to do that is with textiles. After a recent visit to the San Francisco Design Center, I discovered a number of lively fabrics in rich orange, yellow, and green hues with everything from geometric to contemporary patterns. We’ve rounded up a gorgeous group of new fabrics that will infuse your home with an early springtime energy. Here are some of our favorites:
Shiko in Cinnamon – This jacquard weave with geometric pattern in contrasting color combinations adds life to any room. The touch of white and blues cool down the orange tones for a balanced and rich pattern. We are considering this fabric for accent pillows for one of our clients.
Barriere in Linen – A striking embroidered velvet evokes snow-capped mountains with touches of rust, soft blue, and silver. If you’re looking to make a bigger splash, this fabric would be beautiful on an upholstered headboard!
Kiato in Moutard – This ikat velvet pattern in a bold golden color brings a sense of lush and lavishness to a room. This fabric is a great way to brighten a room by using it to create custom drapes.
Wow in Color 3 – The jacquard velvet fabric in bright yellow, almost citron/chartreuse, with contrasting greige and a white cotton background includes a pattern with sharp lines and a sense of movement. If you’re looking for a smaller pop of pattern, try this fabric for game chair seat cushions or a lumbar pillow.
Kaleido in Peacock – Inspired by the beautiful patterns of a kaleidoscope, Kaleido is a digitally printed velvet textile with jewel tones of teals, blues, and golden yellows. With the variety of tones, this fabric would be great as a roman shade.
Water Lily in Ivy – This contemporary floral pattern made geometric in a fresh ivy color with a deep green background is a grounding addition to any room. If you’re looking for a dramatic change, upholster your dining chairs with this fabric.
