Yarn. Thread counts. Blends. Rub tests.
We could bore the very (cotton, viscose, lace..?) pants off you talking about fabrics. After all, it’s the finishing touch that sets the whole mood of your room. A window into your personal style. The texture you touch, whether you’re sinking into soft feather-filled cushions or supported by firm foam. But we’ll try not to get too carried away telling you all about our beautiful new fabric range and keep it to a select few.
Bringing home the botanics trend
British fabric house Sanderson is revered for its rich history of quintessentially English styles. So unsurprisingly it’s British wildlife that sings from their exciting new Woodland Chorus fabric. Created from original watercolour paintings, you can almost hear it chirping.
Or bring the outside in with Champs de Fleur from Designers Guild. Go wild for their two designs, peony or amethyst, both on scoured linen for a timeless textured look. It’s like having a meadow in your living room.
Of course, florals don’t have to be soft and demure. Osborne & Little’s gregarious Tulipan simply blooms with flowering tulips and brightly coloured butterflies. You can liven up a whole room by covering your entire sofa or go for bursts of colour with accent cushions.
One colour wonders
Some set the tone with a single colour. And when you’ve as many fabric styles and textures to choose from as we have, there’s nothing plain about plain.
Rothesay is so luxuriously soft you’ll feel like you’re curling up on a cloud. But because the folks at Designers Guild are practical too, its’ hard-wearing finish is tough enough to handle pets, kids, parties and anything else you can throw at it.
For those who enjoy the natural feel of knobbly lumps and bumps, we’ve the laidback slubby linen Wicklow – now with an all-new colour palette.
Go gaga for geo
We’re still loving geometrics. And Osborne & Little have come up trumps with some truly gorgeous geo patterns.
Take Chrysler, with an art-deco leaf motif mimicking the Chrysler building. It’s fun yet functional, on trend yet classic.
Ledoux (named after Claude Nicolas Ledoux) has a subtle honeycomb weave and an almost architectural feel, in honour of his role championing Neoclassical architecture in the Eighteenth Century. (You knew that already, right?!)
Ragtime Ella pays tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. A geometric trellis with contrasting colour stripes, it’s destined to bring music to your room (and be the perfect place to listen to it, of course!)
If you don’t love the fabric on your sofa, you just haven’t found the right one yet. There are simply thousands to choose from, and we want to craft your sofa with the one that’s spot on for you. And don’t forget you can choose to cover footstools, chairs and cushions in different fabrics too. If you prefer a subtle nod to bold patterns, prints or colour, the scatter cushion could be your new best friend. It’s amazing what a difference just switching the fabric on your cushions can make.
