Go PUMPKIN for Fall! Featuring Vervain Fabrics

Three of our favorites below from Vervain that brings new colorways of softer versions of orange fabrics to the mix.


Top to bottom:

Lambois in Celery
This is a beautiful modern print on linen with a medium repeat. The colorway includes softer corals mixed with light greens and aqua blues. Also comes in Autumn or Multi.  

Everlasting in Cantaloupe
This is a heavy woven with a unique ring design all in durable viscose. The smaller repeat makes it a great pattern for upholstery. Also comes in Reed, Sterling, White Pepper and Robin's Egg.

Chantilly in Pumpkin
This fabric is one of our favorites due to the lacy wide stripe that looks great for pillows and upholstery. The cotton/poly fabric is a larger repeat that works well to place the wide stripe down the center of any chair. See our example below. Also comes in Hazelnut (below), Lacquer, Linen, Rosewater and Seaglass. A favorite!
