One of my favourite elements of interior design and styling is using fabrics, whether it be upholstery, soft furnishings or window dressings, fabrics can add a real point of interest in a space.
I have spent many a happy hour or two looking at fabrics and have a box full of samples in my office.
The range of products available is astounding, so many variations in colour, pattern and texture. Fabrics can be really important element in a space. Textured fabrics can add interest in a neutral interior, breaking up a flat use of the same colour. A highly patterned or coloured fabric can make an armchair or sofa a star attraction. Using rich fabrics like silk and velvet can add a feeling of opulence.
I am seriously like a kid in candy store at the fabric wholesaler.
One fabric supplier that I have been a fan of for some time now is Sparkk. Based in Sydney, they produce a really amazing range of printed textiles with bold patterns in a huge range of colours.
Being a visual person bold patterns and bright colours are a big attraction to me.
A few years back we bought a Bongo ottoman from King Furniture and the fabric of choice was ‘Peggy’.
It’s such a happy, summery fabric.
Aside from their own designs they also collaborate with many other designers like Shibori, Tim Neve and even the Victoria and Albert Museum from my home city.
A few days ago I receive the email newsletter advising of their new Spring/Summer catalogue has gone all digital. Yay!!!

Now I will be honest this post took me a fair amount of time to put together. Now I know what you are thinking…. Why it’s hardly War and Peace in length? Well I kinda got sidetracked looking at all the fabrics dreaming up places I could them.
