Try it in bright yellow or rich dark greens and reds for a one-of-a-kind furniture piece you’ll love.
Geometric and Bauhaus Prints
Geometry is in for 2017, showing up on upholstery fabrics full of blocky and bold patterns that are complementary to a classic design. Whether you like your patterns to incorporate color, or you prefer neutrals or black and white, they’re all in this year.
