Fabric February- Velvets

View our variety of velvet picks on this week's post for Fabric February. We LOVE velvets because of their durability, luster, and texture. A simple linen sofa with gorgeous velvet pillows? Simple perfection!

Brunschwig & Fils: "Soyeux Stripe" in Emerald (we would use this for throw pillows, benches, ottomans, host/hostess chairs.)

Schumacher: "Downtown Velvet" in Byzantine (this fabric is even more gorgeous up-close, and that's why we would use it any and everywhere!)

Manuel Canovas: "Tiana" in Glycine, Blanc (this comes in many other pretty colors, and is so lush in person; it would be the most gorgeous large accent pillows for a bed or sofa.)

February Fabrics- Modern Classics

This week's February Fabrics post is all about some of our favorite classic fabrics with a modern flair to fit into today's world...

Brunschwig & Fils: "Chenonceaux" in Pink/Kumkat (gorgeous for an upholstered headboard or an ottoman.)

Schumacher: "Shanghai Peacock" in Cerise (throw pillows, small benches, or Dining Room chair seats would benefit from this punch fabric the most.)

Schumacher: "Avebury Floral Vine" in Citrine (this elegant and serene fabric would be beautiful draperies or a matching bedskirt and shams in a bedroom.)

Fabric February:"From Nature"

Here are a few of our favorite "nature" inspired fabrics...

Brunschwig & Fils: "Le Zebra" in Beige

Great linen fabric for an ottoman or pillows; brand-new and available in many great colors.

 Kravet: "Kura Kura" in Orkid

A sophisticated beach house fabric that happens to be stain-resistant acrylic-- stylish and practical. We have used it on pillows for some added whimsy. 

Brunschwig & Fils: "Wood" in River

Faux Bois is an organic pattern that looks like tree bark/wood, and it is a classic pattern that has happily experienced a rebirth in the past few years. This would make gorgeous draperies because of the subtle pattern and movement.

Quadrille: "Moroc" in Greens on Oyster

This Leopard-look-alike would be perfect on benches at the foot of a bed or in front of the fireplace. The bright colors it comes in are fresh and punchy.
