With endless options for fabric, and custom designs readily available, we’ve decided to compile 10 favourite fabrics to help inspire you when you’re thinking about the interior styling of your home. As is the case with any tactile material, these fabrics are a million times better to view, feel and connect with in real life. Featured below are fabrics designed and made both abroad and also right here in Australia.
With bold patterns and beautiful colours, this range by Grace Garrett is inspired by Asian culture. The range of designs can be customised in both colour and also the scale of the pattern. It is available on a range of different basecloths, although we especially love the sheer fabric.
This is one of the times where a photo doesn’t do the fabric justice. A beautiful french linen from the Porquerolles range by Toiles De Mayenne, this feels amazingly soft to touch. It comes in a range of neutral colourways that are compatible with almost any style of home.
An amazing product by Shibori. This hand dyed leather is environmentally sustainable and feels just divine. This colour way of soft blues and warm greys have an almost Scandinavian feel. Shibori have also recently released a range of wallpaper designs to complement their existing leather range.
This gorgeous geometric print is the creation of Six Hands. Bold, yet soft all at the same time, we love the pale peach and blue greys mixed with the deep charcoal base. Six Hands range of fabrics is designed and manufactured right here in Australia.
There is something about this fabric design really draws you in. Designed by the Australian Sparkk, this is one of the few patterns that only comes in the one colour way at this stage. This fabric would be perfectly used on a large scatter cushion in an area meant for dreaming.
The best way to describe this fabric is luxurious. This prismatic velvet belongs to the Zambelli range from Designers Guild which beautifully blends vintage and modern style. This is definitely one to get out there and experience – it feels and looks divine.
Another very tactile product and a very special one at that. Le Crin is created by the French company Creations Metaphores and is made using a century old technique of weaving horse hair and natural fibres. The fabric featured here is woven loosely and can be used as a sheer curtain. Le Crin also has a range of fabrics suitable for upholstery.
Another French linen…. we just can’t help ourselves! The Woodstock design by Destombes featured here has a vintage paisley print and is available in soft neutral colour bases, along with brights like this purple and a gorgeous mustard. Definitely up there as one of my most favourites.
Fabrics by Walter G – it’s hard to pick just one to feature from their range! This one is a new design, and we just love it for it’s simplicity. Combine this fabric with either bold colours to give it a lift, or neutral pale colours to give a Nordic feel.
Yes it’s Marimekko! Known for it’s bold prints and bright colours, Marimekko is becoming more of a household name. We couldn’t help featuring this pattern – the yellow is so bright and beautiful, and will be a firm stayer in colour trends for this year.
We hope you enjoyed these beautiful fabrics as much as we do! Please feel free to leave your comments on our facebook page or send us a tweet @eatbathelive (comments space coming soon to the blog page!) As always, thanks for reading! Jenefer
