fabric TREND 1


Our world is more interconnected than ever - exposing us to the richness of far-flung and diverse cultures. Whether you’re an avid or an armchair traveler, the vibrant colors and patterns of ethnic textiles are undoubtedly enriching our homes. 


fabric TREND 2


Our home is our sanctuary - a welcome respite from the 24/7 intensity of life. We love the soothing yet sophisticated look (and feel!) of richly textured upholstery fabrics in a neutral palette. A combo of nubby, fuzzy, silky fabrics creates an inviting, cocoon-like interior.

fabric TREND 3


Green is said to elicit feelings of hopefulness - the perfect state of mind to kick off a new year. With Pantone announcing “greenery” as the 2017 color of the year, we expect to see a lot more green in interiors. We are particularly fond of fresh green botanical prints. Whether lush or sparse, these leafy patterns blend well with any decor style.


fabric TREND 4


While velvet is clearly having a moment in fashion, it has been a long standing staple in the world of interiors. For a twist on this classic textile, we’re crushing on (pun intended) velvets with subtle patterns and color variations. They feel more modern and moody and memorable than their plain vanilla cousin.
