We constantly scour the fabric shows to bring you our favourites from the new trends. We’ve just issued our new fabric collection. We asked Ruth, our head of design, to describe the new additions:
“We have three main themes running through this year’s new fabrics. The first we have adopted is the strong trend in home-wares for ethnic influences. We have selected two lines that incorporate global themes. The first incorporate liveable colours into a subtly faded print. The second offers a flat weave ethnic motif in a medallion, a Kilim pattern and an accompanying stripe. We have selected neutral colours for these, adding a vibrant yellow and grey as an alternative shade.
Additionally, we have added a line of contemporary urban fabrics that would be especially suited to some of our more modern upholstery designs. These show a modern wave pattern in a red and a silver, and we have also added some plain boucles in similar colours for a smart modern feel.
For a softer look, we have opted for some large scale prints in two soft colour options. And to accompany this softer side we have added two very soft chenille velvets in complementary colours.”
