Spring Fabric for the Home April 13, 2018
The rain might be coming down outside, but it is one of the greatest times of the year because we get to share our favorite new spring fabric for the home! The adage “Out with the old and in with the new” truly speaks to this. To combat the gloomy and gray weather that seems to be sticking around, we are here to show you the latest and greatest in bright prints and sumptuous textiles for the home. With something for every design aesthetic and desired color palette, take a look at just a few of our fabric highlights from this season’s releases:
This decorative printed linen gets its pattern inspiration from the aerial view of cultivated fields. A hand-printed block design has been translated into this masterful screen print and marries with a smooth pure linen ground. This visually delicate fabric for the home can be used for light use upholstery and window treatments. We think it would look beautiful as drapery or roman shades.
Evocative of the patterns found in a section of cut wood, this fine chain stitch embroidery is applied in such a way as to mimic the meandering of the original hand drawn lines. The ground for this fabric is linen. Because of the delicate embroidery, the best application for this fabric for the home would be as a window treatment fabric or accent pillows. The lightweight nature of linen makes it the perfect fabric to introduce in the springtime and it can carry your home through the summer.
With a combination of Sunbrella solution-dyed acrylic and solution-dyed polyester, this high performance, bleach cleanable and stain resistant fabric is ready to make its debut as your go-to outdoor fabric for the season. While flowers are a key part of spring textiles, the oversize pattern and modern colors give it a fresh look that will give your home a fresh update. Fabrics with this fiber content can also be used in high traffic areas. We’d love to see this as a built-in bench fabric in a breakfast nook or floor pillows and cushions for a family playroom.
We love the watercolor nature of this fabric, as well as the combination of the vibrant pink and cool blue-gray tones. Recommended for use on heavy upholstery, we think this fabric would work amazingly on a statement sofa (as seen in the photo) or set of dining chairs. If you’re looking to pack less of a punch, a lounge chair or bench in the fabric would have a more subdued “wow moment”.
A lively array of vertical embroidered zig-zags. This fabric is named after the coastal town which was an important port in Roman times. We are getting serious Missoni vibes from this fabric. We like to use delicate embroidered fabric as accent pillows. An upholstered headboard would also be a fabulous way to add a punch of color, texture and pattern to your home.
A dual purpose woven stripe evocative of a cheerful deckchair fabric takes its name from the Italian word for beach. The striking hues of this fabric give it such a sense of life and cheer. Using this fabric to upholster a sofa is definitely a strong look. If you are looking for just a pop of brightness and color in your home, we would use this as a statement lumbar pillow to capture each of the colors in the stripes.
