Textiles can really make a room, but they can also be pretty polarizing once you’re talking patterns beyond a simple stripe or classic dot. Right now, there seems to be room for a little bit of everything in the world of fabric: old world toiles sit alongside bold geometrics at showrooms, and you can’t go far down the Pinterest rabbit hole without stumbling upon a global-inspired ikat or an African mudcloth.
Pillows and throws are easy enough to switch out a couple times a year, but when you’re talking upholstery, curtains and wall coverings, those are investments that need to last longer than a season or two. So we tapped three tastemakers with expertise in fabric—Wendy Estes, owner of online home decor boutiques Layla Grayce and Zinc Door, Kate Reynolds, co-owner of textile showroom Studio Four NYC, and Christina Bryant, founder and CEO of St. Frank—for intel on what’s going gangbusters now, what’s coming down the pipeline and what just won’t quit (but in a good way).
