Are you the kind of person who loves how things are trending in Home
Design? Do you read the latest Home Design Magazines? Some of the
hottest looks in Pillows, Curtains and Throws are Ikat, Woven Linens,
and almost anything with the dyed Hombre color schematic. The look of cool tamped down
shades of Blues and Greys with dashes of Greens and splashes of Red are showing up in home stores and magazines. A
very interesting color palette, modern but with a nod to the past. Designers are also mixing old with new. A continuing
trend is to find antique and interesting chairs and recover them with
an interesting Ikat or rich Velvet. A two page
article on Sofas in the current issue of House Beautiful tells the story
best. Cover your couches in neutral colors, Greys, Blues, Browns and
Taupes, then punch it up with some colorful and patterned Pillows. Are you
a lover of some of the new Paisley's or Bold Florals? Wow, do we have
some fun choices, click to see a collection on our Pinterest page.
We also have bolts and bolts of heavy duty, wonderful textures and
woven tone on tone patterns waiting for you to discover. A new look
for your Sofa is only 10 yards away! Log onto maryjos.com or pop into the Store. You will not be disappointed, only delighted.
