Leaves & Ferns Fabric
Plant motifs and leaf patterns were used to decorate fabrics from the earliest Islamic period. Plants appear in many different forms in Islamic art, ranging from single motifs to extended patterns. I have a variety of Leaf patterned fabrics, perfect if you want an organic design that is not floral. My Leaf print fabrics for curtains are available in a range of colours and suitable for leaf upholstery too.
Summarise the range of leaf and fern designs, the mood they can perpetuate, etc.
My largest leaf fabric design is Fern and Dragonfly, depicting large fronds of ferns interspersed with dragonflies, this design comes in dark Lichen green and soft Smoke perfect for studies, halls and dining rooms; Raspberry red and pretty Hay yellow for living rooms. My Acorn and Leaf fabrics are timeless, this design is multi directional and makes wonderful furniture or made to measure curtains.
Down To Earth, Botanical Trellis and Little Leaf all take same leaves on a stylised journey, giving them a contemporary, fresh and modern look. These three designs all come in a soft Hay yellow with Charcoal, pretty Apple Green with Raspberry and a more neutral Limestone again mixed with Raspberry.
The larger scale leaf pattern fabric, Leaf Dance with its intricate veins originated from a lino cut and makes wonderful curtains and blinds. There there is choice of Damson pink, Saffron yellow and Smoke with an accent of Charcoal.
So, what accessories and furniture pieces are the leaf fabrics is best suited to?
The Leaf Dance fabric is part of the Bohemian Collection; all the designs in this collection coordinate with this leaf fabric design, such as Pretty Maids, Gypsy Garland and Stockholm Stripe.
Similarly, Acorn and Leaf sits beautifully with the other prints in The Wildflower Collection, especially Stripe and Dash and Plain Dotty. Having small multi-directional motives it looks great on cushions and lampshade too!
All these leaf prints are perfect for curtains, blinds and upholstery purposes.
