Fabric of the Month

October's Fabric of the Month is an abstract woven print of chrysanthemums in the 'Aqua & Cocoa' colorway

Schumacher’s abstract woven print in the ‘Aqua & Cocoa’ colorway

The inspiration for this abstract pattern came from an antique kimono textile of chrysanthemum flowers.   Would never have guessed that, but once you know this, you can see it!

This fabric is part of Schumacher’s Modern Glamour wovens.  The combination of the silk velvet  floral weave on a satin cotton ground produces a luxuriously tactile fabric.

The pattern’s scale is mid-size, with a 12 1/4″ vertical repeat.  So, depending upon where it’s used, it can work as either a companion fabric or the key fabric in a room.

The style of the pattern falls more into the contemporary category but it would also be at home in a transitional decor.

Although not suitable for upholstered furnishings, the tactile quality of this fabric would be especially enjoyed used for pillows, as well as for drapes, valances and bedding.

It’s available in just 2 colorways, Aqua & Coca, above, and Cerise & Cinnabar, below.

Scale:  54″ width:  12 1/4″ vertical repeat, 12 3/4″ horizontal repeat
