I have to start out today by telling you that this is my 600th post on Tabulous Design!!!! I can’t believe it but it’s true, and the great thing is there are still so many more things to share, stories to tell and exciting things on the horizon for the blog. So, if you enjoy catching up with us every day, stay tuned it’s only going to get better.
Now to the business of design, I am constantly amazed at the beautiful fabrics being created for both indoor and outdoor use, especially by the Sunbrella company. I’ve recently been working with a client to make cushions for a new mudroom bench they built by their back door and a new bench seat around their breakfast table and we are using Sunbrella fabrics. Since the fabrics are essentially made to be used outside and stand up to the elements they are perfect for indoor use, especially in areas where they will get lots of wear. I have found several fabrics that I want to use and have our living room furniture recovered, we don’t have kids but there are two grown men and two dogs that are all over the furniture. I was really excited to see the Sunbrella fabrics that were created in conjunction with Thibaut in the Calypso collection, all of these fabrics would be great both in the house or on the patio and they are so on point with the colors they chose to use. From the blues and greens to the grays and tans they are all beautiful. Here’s a peek at the collection, showing you close-ups of the fabrics and how the folks at Thibaut used them for pillows and upholstery. The link is here to visit the site and see all the great colors the patterns come in, Enjoy!!!
First off we have Geode Ikat, love the red, white, and blue look without being a flag. This would be great in a room with blue as the main color and red for a big punch.
The Catalina collection is a great herringbone pattern, love the chair below with white piping and buttons. This is a great blue that will mix with so many other colors.
As you can see in the picture below, Sarah Spot plays well with others, especially the blue spot with the blue Cataline from the above sampling, and it gives a hint of animal.
The Misha pattern is a fun one to mix in for an exotic touch. Here we see Misha in gray as well as in blue and green in the photo at the top of the post.
Don’t you love the geometry of the Ellipse pattern, it reminds me of 21st-century trellis pattern, especially on the green fabric.
Parterre is another pattern with a lot of geometry to it, the picture below allows you to see the basketweave pattern going on. It would be great on a couple of side chairs or dining chairs, and like most of these fabrics, it comes in eight color choices.
