Arlo & Design Fabric Edit: Optimistic Futuristic
With our Arlo & Design concept in full swing, we’re delving into our curated mix of fabric options to focus on five key trends. Our Senior Design team has noticed a new movement on the horizon that focuses on refreshing greens soothing nature-inspired hues. We’re calling this springy, uplifting trend Optimistic Futuristic.
This is a trend that’s big on colour and pattern, using them to harness the revitalising qualities of botanical themes. Our much-loved Chintz fabric in Greenery is a fantastic example of this emerging affection for bringing the outdoors in. This is an energising upholstery featuring a dynamic assembly of plant specimens, printed in harmonious hues of green. Some elements take on a seafoam inflection, while others draw the eye with deeper forest greens. It’s a beautifully modern take on the classic chintz that brings a bit of spring to any interior.
If you lean towards a more pared-back look, our Bude fabric in Olive is just the thing. This sumptuous velvet upholstery is soft like the leaves of a Lamb’s Ear plant, conjuring up nature’s tranquillity. Velvet seems to transcend trends, settling in as a timeless fixture of design. This is a fabric to stand the test of time with a beautiful, deep hue that will work wonderfully all year round.
Our designer fabric offering is bursting with fabulous textures and patterns. The Gilman fabric in Kelp is a wonderful illustration of how colour can meet pattern to show-stopping effect. This is a grown-up upholstery rooted by blocks of rich green. Tactile strands of ivory criss-cross the surface, defining a structured yet soft pattern, and giving the fabric a slightly raw, organic quality.
We’re all for this Optimistic Futuristic move towards nature-inspired fabrics. To fully appreciate the trend, we’d heartily recommend a visit to one of our showrooms, where our team can guide you through the full offering. We hope you’ll join us in embracing the beauty of these gorgeous greens in your home!
