Fabric Love!

Fabric Love!

Every Tuesday morning we look forward to our vendor breakfast meetings! These meetings provide us with an inside look at the very latest and greatest products including fabrics, furniture, tile, rugs, accessories, and the list goes on! We also focus on keeping our training as up to date as possible, as there are always new innovations and new designs in the field of interior design! 

Here we are with one of our favorite vendors, Colleen with Kravet! As you can see, the meetings are very up close and personal, and a lot of fun! 

 We like to get hands on with the fabric! We are trying to figure out the fabric's "hand" or how the fabric feels against your skin. Soft, smooth, silky, crisp, textured, stiff, heavy, stretchy or just down right amazing! Scratch test? You bet, we need to see how the fabric will perform in the real world!

As designers, one of our utmost concerns with fabrics is the application. Is the fabric going to hold up on an upholstered sofa with pets and children? Will the fabric you have chosen for window treatments stretch out or fade after time?

In the interior design business, it has become very popular to ask world famous designers to create a line exculsive to that company. Kravet has some of the best! Kade Spade always has some fresh, inspiring designs!

Kelly Wearstler's style is unique and distinctive!

I think Erika just found a new skirt fabric! Such a gorgeous Brunschwig & Fils design! 

We love getting to see and touch these fabrics!
