I would like to use this fabric for the sofa upholstery of my lounge. This fabric has a rub test of 30,000 and is medium weight. It is good for “severe domestic use”. It can withstand the traffic of a lot of people in this common area and the color will not rub off on the clothing of the people who would sit in the sofa. It is medium weight and has a bit of stretch so people could have a soft comfortable seat that could give a bit of support and follow the contour of their body. For durability of the sofa, the fabric will not easily snap out of place at the seams.
It is cotton so it can give a comfortable seating in any type of weather. The dark brown color is nice to camouflage wine, coffee and juice stains as the lounge is where you entertain most of your visitors. Mint Cotton White and Black Cotton I would like to use the mint cotton and the white and Black cotton to cover the throw pillows of the Espresso Chenille sofa. The throw pillows would be displayed alternately. The white with black print will create the necessary contrast to the dark brown fabric of the sofa to brighten up the sofa.
The mint cotton will make the sofa space lively and will give balance to the contrasting colors. The mint cotton has a rub test of 20,000 so the fabric is strong to withstand being hugged, fluffed and manipulated. It is good for” general domestic use” Whoever sits in the sofa and hugs the throw pillow with mint cotton fabric will not have color stains on their clothes. The white fabric with black print will not stain the clothes of the guests too. The cotton fabrics will give a soft touch and would complement the sofa well to give it a contemporary look. This look could also pass as an Asian/Japanese theme for a “zen” ambiance.
Sage Chenille I would like to use the sage chenille for curtains in the lounge area. It has a rub test of 40,000 which is good for “severe domestic use”. Usually, children play with the curtains they hide behind it or pull it every which way. The fabric will not stain the wet sticky hands of the children and the medium dark green color will not easily show off the handprints of the children when they soil the curtains while playing with it. Should the curtain be tugged to open and close, the fabric is strong enough to withstand constant tugging without ripping.
The fabric is heavy so that it can filter out the sunlight and the fabric will not easily fly supposing there is breeze from an open window. With Creamy white walls, proper lighting (warm white), plants, flowers and other display pieces, the lounge would look fresh and clean and it would be a comfortable place to receive guests. FABRIC SELECTION FOR THE DINING ROOM The soft leather would be used for upholstery for redwood dining chairs. It is water resistant so the dining chairs will not get soiled. The black color is also resistant to food color stains such as spaghetti sauce or soy sauce.
Cleaning up after a meal even if you have small children is hassle free. House guests with small children will not be uncomfortable eating there because they know they can help you clean up and nothing would be destroyed should their children splatter food all over your dining area. Sage Chenille Velvet flocked silk The Velvet flocked silk and Sage Chenille could be used as a table runners for the rectangular table with the black soft leather upholstered chairs. The Sage Chenille would be a thinner table runner on top of the thicker Velvet flocked silk.
These table runners can be sewn together with gold trimmings to be placed under floral arrangements to give the dining table elegance and style. This will make up for the lack luster black soft leather chairs for a formal dining event. This set-up would really look nice with a complete table set-up of white china with gold trimmings, white candles, gold flatware, placemats, table napkins and crystal glasses with gold trimmings. The black velvet flocked silk could also be used as trimmings for the sage chenille curtain in the dining room.
The black velvet could be sewn on the tug areas of the curtain with gold trimmings so that it would be coordinated with the table runners. The owner could also opt for yellow-gold colored chenille instead of the sage chenille, if available, to give the dining room more brilliance and a look of opulence. FABRIC SELECTION FOR THE KITCHEN The white toile is ideal for a hanging kitchen curtain where only 1/4 of the kitchen window is covered from the top down. It can partially filter or block out the morning sun or the afternoon sun and still maintain a bright, airy and cheerful room.
Since kitchens usually have breakfast nooks and that is usually where we have our afternoon tea. The design of the fabric would give the ambiance of having tea the “English” way. We could also use it to make apron, hand mittens and potholders for kitchen coordinates and also use the same fabric to make covers for less frequently used small appliance or kitchen gadgets. It could also be sewn together with a towel cloth where the top part is the toile and the lower part is the towel cloth. The toile portion would probably have buttons or hoops for hanging.
