Textiles are one of the core elements of interior design. They are an important tool to create a mood and set the tone for a space based on a client’s needs and the space’s intended purpose. Here is a collection of fabrics that are trending for 2021 based on the S/S Print and Pattern Reports.

The great thing about patterned fabrics is there are no rules. Layered patterns are becoming more prevalent in textiles. Pattern mixing with similar colors tying together patterns of varying origin and scale is one of many ways to tie this trend together. Pattern matching, where the same pattern flows from the wall to upholstered furniture or bedding, is also trending in the patterned fabric scene.
Whether you aim to design a space with patterned fabrics that recreate elements of nature to achieve an earth-worn look, alluding to craftsmanship vibe intricate weaves and neutral basics, or combining retro, geometric fabrics to create vibrant interiors, patterned fabrics can really make or break a space out of the box.
From bold to basic, patterns can really make a statement, as shown in our patterned fabric trend capsule.
