I spotted this colorful striped fabric last week when browsing some drapery textiles. I can’t get it out of my head.
It doesn’t fit any of my current clients, and I felt it wasn’t right for my home. I was sad. Then, I realized it comes in about six more colorways! Among them are two that I equally adore: Travertine and Ocean. Travertine is PERFECT for my home office!:
It really is a shame that this textile doesn’t scan well. The actual sheen is incredible. It’s 72% silk and 28% linen, so you can imagine how lovely the stripes are and how textured it actually is. Here is a picture from the Lane Venture website that does a better job at capturing the depth and drape of the fabric, but still doesn’t depict even close to the right texture or show the full repeat:
Carousel Stripe is refined, fun, understated and over the top all at the same time. Made by Lane Venture (I am almost positive about this, but am not 100% sure that they are indeed the manufacturer) and available at Calico Corners for $62.99/yard, it’s one of the greatest values I’ve seen lately in textiles. Where would you use it – drapery, linens, pillows, framed or somewhere else?
