Design Crush: Furniture with Fabric Texture
May 15, 2013
A few years ago I toured some local model homes and spied a beautiful media cabinet in a townhome with inset grasscloth panels – yum! Since then I’ve been a fan of pieces of furniture that incorporate fabric or organic texture into the design, be it linen or grasscloth or burlap, and even animal skin.
I’m inspired by anyone who can pull off a great DIY version too, check out this dresser covered in grasscloth and nailhead trim! Find the this detailed tutorial at Elsee blog – she transformed a simple Hemnes dresser into a chic changing table, wow!
I see a lot of high end furniture with fabric texture out in the marketplace and my mind is always clicking into the “bet you could DIY for less” mode. I absolutely love this Bretton Console from Jayson Home by at $950 it’s pricey. To create the look for less, combine this $69 Parsons console with burlap and upholstery tacks and you could end up with a fabulous knock off.
My friend Courtney featured a series of chests in his post about High Point Market and through him I discovered the Curate Home Purveyor collection – oh my word I’m in love with these textured home accents. Perhaps you can achieve a similar look with an inexpensive tiered round table from Overstock?
… or mimic the look of these gorgeous chests from Curate Home with the IKEA Rast and some ring pulls …
… or follow this step by step for a similar look with a linen wrapped RAST with nailhead trim by Hello Boudreau.
Don’t limit yourself to just solids – consider patterned fabrics too, like this snakeskin wrapped Goodwill console table, how fab is this reinvention by Emily at Recently!
Are you a fan of furniture upholstered with fabric?
I’m crushing hard on the style of these pieces!
