rowr! (plus some indoor/outdoor combos)

so the blonde on blonde tiger pattern indoor/outdoor woven chenille ("swifty") from clarence house might be my new favorite fabric du jour. the other two colorways are alright, but nothing spectacular, but the blonde on blonde? i'm dreaming of all the upholstery possibilities! only bummer is it's kinda pricy, but for such killer style, we'll gladly pay...
another new favorite is this woven raffia look-alike from beacon hill ("taormina")- softer than real raffia and so pet-friendly i can't stand it, with the texture and striation sure to hide a multitude of pet sins. we'd use it for the body of a sofa (inside or out!) with colorful patterned pillows (shumacher & dedar) for a sunny, fresh vibe...

speaking of colorful, what do y'all think of this green, orange and fuschia combo ("linen" in "leaf", being the ground fabric, and the orange velvet and schmacher fuschia ikat the accents). the clarence house linen is a pretty nice fake, i think- so is the perennials velvet!

last, indoor/outdoor fabrics can be masculine too- we think this grey herringbone woven is pretty damn chic, especially paired with a pop of zebra from duralee!
again, we are loving so many great options in totally fake fabrics! ted can't wait to road test all of them!
