Fabric of the Month

Noir/Crème:  This colorway adds drama to the embellished look of the pattern.

Due to the beginning of the winter season, I’m sure, this pattern suggests the silhouette of trees in the snow in the Noir & Creme colorway shown above.

The name of the pattern is Fern Tree but oddly enough, it isn’t available in any shade of green.

The two other colorways available feature pastel turquoise ferns on a cream ground and white ferns on a deep grey ground (as shown at the bottom of this post).

The full pattern repeat consists of columns of ferns placed end to end with each fern measuring about 9″ in height and about a 3″ width at the base.

Although this pattern would work well for a variety of furniture & window treatments, it especially appeals to me for use in smaller doses for items like upholstered dining chairs, pillows and bed skirts.

Style:  Transitional

Fabric content:  58% cotton, 41% viscose, 1% silk

Scale:  56″ width:  18.875″ vertical repeat, 3 1/2 ″ horizontal repeat

Use:  This fabric is suitable for valances & cornices, drapes, shades, bedding & upholstery.
