Rethinking the Look of Things No. 20 - Painted Fabrics

Several introductions at the International Home Furnishings Market in North Carolina have me rethinking the look of "painted fabrics".  These pieces are an indication that creativity is still flowing in the furnishings industry. After a few years of hum drum introductions it is refreshing to see that vitality is back.

For many many years if you wanted a fabric that told a story toiles were your answer. I'm loving the new approach to story-telling in fabrics for upholstery. Whether a familiar painting translated onto fabric in normal scale or the traditional botanical painting dissected and enlarged to show detail these treatments on upholstery are amazing.

These fabrics make statement pillows too!
