Vibrant colors, bold patterns, and dramatic textures are making a comeback as seen in Bassett’s new fabric introductions. Fabrics have such a wonderful way of inspiring how you decorate a room. Color and pattern. Balance and style. Comfort and beauty. Yes, thank goodness, color is here again. Neutrals are stepping back and allowing more expressive colors to come into the limelight. According to Furniture Design Creative Director Anne Spilman, “We’ve had years of neutrals and more subdued spaces and I think people are
excited for the energy, for having different pops of color, and for the different ways you can add some personality and happiness into your home.”
Patterns are eye-catching
Patterns can be as inspiring as they are eye-catching. “I normally start with a fabric that I’m really drawn to when I’m designing a room. And depending on the scale of that pattern, that informs the application of it. So, if you have a larger scale, you might do that on a curtain and that’s how you jump off with your wall color. Then you can do smaller scale patterns that work with larger scales that incorporate the same colors on your furniture frames,” Anne added.
Anne’s collaborative colleague and Bassett Furniture Fabric Creative Director Patti Frye explains there’s a new focus on pattern scale and textures.
The most interesting spaces are those that successfully create contrast and interest. According to Patti, “Many of our fabrics have a handwoven appeal to them and it’s this sense of perfect imperfection that offers a casual but polished look without looking staged.”

“When our customers come into the store, we want them to say, ‘Wow, this is exactly what I was looking for!’ We want them to know that they have the ability to customize and ultimately make it be the perfect fit for their home. We want them to feel like their personality is reflected in our fabric line and in our product,” concluded Patti.
