Feature Fabrics

A big trend to hit interiors throughout 2018 is tropical print, and this spring we are set to see a rise in tropical themed interiors; from colourful cushions to humble house plants.  There are plenty of ways to commit to this trend, from a simple accessory swap to a total restyle.

A great way to inject the tropics into your interior is through the use of a statement fabric. The creative use of a feature fabric can prove to be less overpowering than of wallpaper, especially with a theme such as this. Perfect examples of this are Jab and Matthew Williamson fabrics! If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, try Cole & Son’s famous ‘Palms’ wallpaper with matching fabrics coming soon!

Another trend to hit big this season is a pop of colour! Beautiful bright, bold colours are rapidly making their way into interiors. Fabric is the ideal way to invest in this trend. It’s ability to be used in small doses, such as for cushions, means its easy to create the look you desire.

If you are still looking for a feature fabric that will tie in with your existing scheme, Harlequin have a fantastic range of bold designs to brighten up any space!
