I have always been a fan of large, boldly printed fabrics used to upholster furniture. When it comes to decorating my own home I have never chosen small prints. I guess I just like the statement that a large print makes, and I think that they have more of a modern feel than small print fabrics. In recent years I have definitely seen a trend towards these big and bold patterns.
I have a lamp identical to this brass arc one on the dresser!!!
I am obsessed with the above fabric!!! It's called Macao from China Seas and I have it in dark brown, which I like even better than the green. I can't wait til I figure out what to use it for!
