Fabrics: Zig-zags, Chevrons, Ikats…

And other geometric shapes or solids? Yes, I’m still at it! (Read my post here to catch up). Just when you think you know what you’re going for, it doesn’t quite turn out the way you had expected.

My fabric samples from Spoonflower (Etsy-equivalent for fabrics) came in the other day. Spoonflower, by the way, allows you to print your own fabric designs. It’s such a great startup concept.

Anyhoo – here they are:


This is the Chevron fabric by Ravynka. It really is a funky pattern, isn’t it!


This is the Zig Zag by Brownpaperpackages.
I’m torn because I do love the pattern. The background of the fabric is just too white, I think for the look I was imagining. I planned to paint the wood frame on the sofa with an antique white finish, which would not match the white background on either of these fabrics. I suppose one alternative would be to paint the wood frame a blue or even yellow?? But I don’t think I want to go too much on that funky route. So, what are the other options?


Country Cabin in Bluebell by Robert Allen.


Sultana Lattice in Luna by Iman.


Kalah in Blue.


Or I could go with solids. Like this Sunbrella fabric in Baltic color. I could just spice it up with pillows and accessories.

Or Endow Saffire.


Or another Sunbrella in Navy.

I was told by the fabric expert at Calico Corners that Sunbrella may be a good option for constantly used furniture. It should last a long time and deal well with everyday wear. Has anyone used Sunbrella for interior upholstery?

I think, I’m leaning toward the Country Cabin in Bluebell by Robert Allen. But not completely sure. What do you guys think?

Sincerely,
