Slipcover Trend: Big Hand-Drawn Floral Fabrics

Oversized Floral Prints at Field's Fabrics

Contemporary Home Decor Prints at Field’s Fabrics

Big, loosely hand-drawn floral prints for slipcovers, especially for spring. FUN! I’m seeing these type of happy fabrics used a lot in upholstery, draperies and pillows. The oversized scale and contemporary color palette would look great in a casual slipcover for an armchair, occasional chair and maybe even dining room chairs.

To my local readers: I spotted these 3 home decor prints today at Field’s Fabrics in Kalamazoo. There are many more. Check out their sale this month!

 

Slipcover Fabric Alternative

When a high-end decorator fabric isn’t an option, consider an apparel fabric for your slipcover. That’s what we did for my customer, Pam, who needed 35 yards to cover her large sectional sofa.

We shopped the apparel fabric section at Field’s Fabrics and found a durable, and pretty, cotton twill for only $4 per yard in just the right color and weight….perfect for her family friendly sectional.

A medium-weight cotton twill, canvas or plain weave with a soft drape and tight weave (designed for pants and jackets) are good fabric alternatives for most casual slipcovers.
