If you want to keep up with what’s hot in fabric, here’s what’s happening. Popular colors include blush, green, and brown. Boho Patchwork, Nomadic Designs, Traditional Designs in updated colors are the patterns we are seeing. Upholstery textures are nubby, boucle, slub, and soft. In addition, performance fabrics that are sustainable, cleanable, and fade resistant (Indoor/Outdoor and Crypton) are everywhere. The use of trim such as tape, pom-poms, and metallics is picking up.
