My favorite collection: Morris & Co
Even from the days of interior design college William Morris’ exquisite patterns always wowed me. Perhaps, it’s Mr. Morris’ love of nature. Or maybe the value he placed in craftsmanship and longevity of hand-made things. It’s remarkable that Perennials used iconic patterns and adapted them to their sophisticated technological process. As a result, we can admire beautiful patterns that are highly durable and stain-resistant.
Here are some other examples of Perennials by Morris & Co
Willow Bough features a beautiful allover pattern of willow leaves and branches. Available in three neutral colorways. Use this fabric for a traditional style armchair or an English style sofa. Add a contrast welt and make a statement piece.
Linen-like Rosehip looks like original Morris’ ceramic tiles. My favorite color is Linen. I like a refined but straightforward three dimensional tactile quality of this pattern.
Poppy is an elegant tone-on-tone tight pattern with curvy, dreamy lines. It is available in a range of three subtle palettes perfect for any chair or a pillow.
Another gorgeous pattern is Marigold. I love the curvilinear lines of lush foliage and florals that are both simple and luscious. Available in five colorways.
Bachelors Button boasts an intriguing overall pattern.
Drapery Fabric by Perennials
A subtle pattern of Branch is a double-width (118 inches wide) sheer, perfect for drapery use. It is washable and has an embedded UV protective quality.
In addition to patterns that artfully mimic William Morris’ original designs, Perennials have three new stripe offerings and one new texture.
Ascot Stripe is an elegant small scale stripe that complements any floral pattern. Textured Piccadilly Stripe looks like linen. Its blurred lines have a softness of chenille. Lastly, Jaunty is for minimalist lovers. It has a less pronounced chenille quality with an antiqued look. It is available in five soft hues.
How to reduce the cost of Perennials fabric?
Because of the exceptional quality and a complex technological process, the cost is still high, $90-$115 per yard. However, you can reduce the cost if you approach this process creatively.
The answer is- dual fabric. Above all you want the seat of the chair to repel stains, right? So, you don’t need to use Perennial Fabric all over. Instead, use it for the seat and a less expensive coordinating fabric for the back. This way you can be sure that the wine stains or baby’s food are off on-demand while you save the cost.
