It's that time of year when the weather is cooling down, the smell of autumn is in the air, and we hear the sounds of sample books from the new fabric collection being taken out of their boxes.
Our latest collection of 10 books is made up of nearly 600 fabrics to add to your library, giving you tons of new possibilities to create the perfect space for your clients.
When creating a room, we all need an inspiration to jump-start our design. Our Muse, Well-Traveled, and From The Heart books have been carefully curated for pulling inspiration from culture, nature and whimsy.
A muse is a source of stimulation used to help guide and create works of art. Our Muse book is a collection of fabrics influenced by nature, paintings, brush strokes and color.
These prints and embroideries range from abstract and contemporary to more intricate and detailed patterns.
Well-Traveled takes you on a journey, pulling inspiration from different cultures and ethnic motifs found around the world. This book features fabrics with deeper tones as well as more subdued color combinations, giving a fresh take on traditional designs.
Layering is important in interior design and this book is full of patterns that can be combined for a cultural and eclectic look.
From The Heart is our latest embroidery collection that is a combination of both botanical designs and geometric shapes. Exquisite embroidery stitching techniques from around the globe enhance each of the designs with detailed craftsmanship.
These patterns can easily launch the design of an entire space or refresh an existing room.
Subtle layers of sheen fill the next three books. If you're looking for elegance with a touch of luster and a drapery hand that hangs gracefully, these are the fabrics for you.
Marble & Brass and Blue Steel are a two-book color collection of woven fabrics that are excellent for drapery, shades and top treatments. Choose between a book of whites, creams, warm golds and browns or blues ranging from navy to teal with a touch of cool grays.
These fabrics are wonderful for a tone-on-tone room or one that needs textures and small‑scale patterns.
Synchrony is complete with faux silks and textured solids that give the window a simple unified look while creating depth and interest.
These lightweight solids are great candidates for large expanses of windows. They also pair well with blackout lining, which can often become too heavy for functioning drapery when used with a thicker fabric.
While exceptional for the home, all of the patterns in this book pass NFPA 701, making them likewise well suited for commercial use.
Sometimes all a room needs is the finishing touch of well-made straightforward drapes in a solid natural fabric, or a sheer that allows the view and sunlight to prevail as features in the room.
Linen Library is a terrific book to source all things linen. This collection shows the beauty of linen and all of its inherent characteristics in fabrics from full 100% linens to linens blended with cotton or rayon. It's curated in best-performing colors that highlight a natural look.
The pattern Only Linen is a 100% linen that has been processed through a technique that helps reduce the stretching and shrinking that can naturally occur in linen when it hangs.
Creating an uncomplicated airy room that lets in natural light is easy when you have a great go-to book of sheers. Sheer Philosophy features wide width sheers that create a seamless look along a bank of windows.
This book has both plain gauzy looks and more decorative patterns in geometrics and stripes, all in subtle colors.
These sheers each pass NFPA 701, making them applicable for all of your residential and commercial projects.
We are introducing two new solid books that will be staples in your library. We always work with color ranges to pair with larger patterns in the collection, but these also stand successfully on their own.
One strong solid book is Prominence, which has three polyester and cotton blend fabrics in a delightful range of colors that work well in the home. One of the fabrics featured in this book, Prophet, is known to have a great hand and to work admirably in all applications.
And Enterprise is the book we've been waiting for! Filled with rich textures featuring faux wool looks, this book is ideal when you need that extra depth to add to a room.
We're excited for you to get your hands on these new fabrics, then to see the amazing designs you put together! Showcase your designs by tagging us on social media with @carolefabrics or #carolefabrics. Happy designing and happy autumn!
