I’ve been on the hunt for a few fabrics and decided to take a spin through Forsyth Fabrics here in Atlanta. Forsyth is one of my go-to sources for moderate priced designer fabrics and you’ll always find the latest fabric trends in their aisles. Because the fabric industry is changing and manufacturers and retail stores are producing less fabric, more and more of the fabrics carried at Forsyth have to be special ordered. Even so, they still have a good selection of cut and take fabrics so this is where I shop for personal projects I’m working on.
Let’s take a look at see what’s trending in designer fabrics…
Malachite patterns have been around for decades but really resurfaced a few years ago in textiles and decor. This was the only malachite fabric I could find at Forstyle and even through it has to be special ordered, its definitely worth the wait.
I’ve been seeing military green showing up in fall fashion so it makes sense that it’s a big trend in upholstery fabric. I can’t jump on this color bandwagon just yet but it might grow on me.
The emerald green trend is also continuing with muted variations showing up in classic fabric patterns.
I don’t think teal will ever go out of style or paisley prints for that matter.
These bold colors can always be found in upholstery fabrics but they feel a bit ‘past their time’ to me.
One of my favorite color combinations lately is orange and grey. I would love to design a bedroom around these colors.
The with popularity of blue and white in decor, I totally expected to see lots of navy fabrics and I did. I really loved the middle batik inspired print which would make a beautiful pair of drapes or a chair fabric.
Classic black and white with a touch of neutral, always timeless. The zebra print is just begging to be on a pair of footstools or made into pillows.
Raised relief designs are popping up more and more and these embroidered looks felt really fresh.
I may be the only one but I’m kinda liking that this golden rod color is coming back into style. That top fabric had lots of texture and was really beautiful.
Forsyth Fabrics also has a clearance room where you can find short lengths of fabric and trim at great prices. I snagged remnants of these two fabrics to
hoard use on a future project.
It’s good to have Forsyth just a short drive from my house so I can indulge my fabric habit whenever I want.
If you’re not in Atlanta, don’t worry. You can shop all of the fabrics available at Forsyth on their website and get delivery right to your door.
