Inspired by: Fabulous Fabrics

Most designers and creatives have a standard “starting place” for every project they do—a primary point of inspiration that gets them processing great ideas. For me, it’s fabric.

Since pattern, color and texture are so important to successful room design, many of my designs are inspired by fabrics, first and foremost, because you can find a great combination of all elements in one swatch. 

You can also use the same fabric to achieve a different look, like this one that allows these two chairs to complement each other with stunning style.

These patterns all have a similar feel but with color variation that results in dramatic layering.

I love the idea of livening up a room by using different fabrics across the same set of chairs — a look worth emulating more often!

I dare you to take your eyes of this chair. The fabulous blend of fabrics, different textures and earth tones mixed with bright hues creates a fascinating, unique look that serves as a reminder of the rewards of risk-taking.
