This Spring 2013 High Point Market we had fun playing with fabric combinations on different shapes. Color blocking is trending this season and we couldn’t wait to bring it to you.
In our featured image – the Bounce ottoman – fabric combining makes the ottoman look like a vanilla wafer dipped in chocolate. The “vanilla” fabric is Desdemona Crema, a new cover that is a soft, washed cotton with heavy texture. The “chocolate” fabric is Cassio Mocha, a new cover, washed cotton, heavily textured houndstooth.
In the Strata chair below – we gave new life to this very simple but elegantly shaped dining chair. We combined two popular vinyls to get this look. The top portion is vinyl Scallop Lead and the bottom portion is Scallop Champagne. The fabric application as seen here really adds drama to the dining room.

Next up – The Boxx ottoman. This was fun to create with the color-blocked look. We combined our new solid quilted fabric called Cozy Saffron and a new heavily textured cotton called Lightning Saffron. Our lead designer, Tina Nicole, combined bulky textiles with different patterns to achieve the handmade, homegoods look.
Modular designs are always the best to use for color blocking. By using different color fabrics, you can change the individual pieces around and get different looks. Below, on the Folio sectional, we combined a one-arm bumper sofa in a new cover, Cozy Crema, with an armless chair in a new cover, Cozy Khaki, and two ottomans in new covers, Cassio Mocha and Cozy Crema. Also, on the Folio, the unique “U” shaped leg design changes direction as you rearrange the seating pieces. It makes for a playful and personal style statement in home decor.
