You can also get fabrics perfect for stair runners too, if you prefer a longer, flowing finish. 

Striped upholstery fabric for curtains and blinds is particularly stunning. Stripes on fabrics are completely timeless and unlike bolder patterned fabrics you will never tire of them.

Queen Victoria made stripes popular, after dressing her son Bertie in a striped sailor suit and this started the connection of stripes with words such as “marine” and “sea”. While the blue and white striped fabric combo may take us back to summer days at the seaside; the thin black and white striped fabric has a way of transporting us to the cityscape. Whether you use them in your home in a traditional way or in a totally modern and contemporary way, decorating with stripes is a great way to bring some order to your room.

Striped fabric has the power to reshape an interior depending on how they're used; it adds a crisp, polished feel to a space. Best of all, striped fabrics mix beautifully with plains, florals, and other patterns meaning they can be used just about anywhere. Striped soft furnishing fabrics can be elegant when they're tone-on-tone or wild when they're bright and bold and also classic when the stripes are the same width. 

How to incorporate striped upholstery designs around the house

Bright striped pattern fabric for curtains and blinds looks very smart, one of our most popular designs is Scandinavian striped, because it is informal and can help create a nautical, seaside style. You can use stripes as a beautiful trim on the leading edges of curtains, borders on blinds, and also for contrast piping for furniture and for cushions.

Here are our luxury made to measure stripe curtains and striped styles for roman blinds as well as stripy roller blind options

Do stripes on walls work?

Yes they do, in fact, they help to heighten the look of the room if the ceilings are quite low, but also create a sophisticated feature wall. We have three coloured striped Wall Coverings called 'Spotty Stripe', which would be perfect for this! They come in Duck Egg blue, Smoke blue, and Limestone neutral.

What can be done with stripes?

Our stripes come in all different colours. We mix Teal blue with Lime green, Teal with Tomato red, Damson pink with Scree grey, and many, many more.

We have striped material for upholstery: Sofas, Chairs and Footstools can look dramatic covered in strong stripes, or quietly fresh with a gentle stripe. The different striped fabrics include Stockholm Stripe, Simple Ticking Detail, Floral Stripe, French Ticking, and Stripe and Dash.

We also have a range of Scandinavian Woven stripes, woven on hand looms in a beautiful mid weight Linen. These make fresh and pretty curtains and can be unlined if you just want to filter out the light. The Lapland Stripe and Baltic Stripe wovens also make wonderful processed blinds where you see the same pattern on the front and back.

What other patterns complement and contrast with your striped fabric?

The striped fabrics look great contrasted with the spots of Pretty Maids. Also, each stripe is designed to coordinate with the other prints in the collections to which they belong, for instance, the Stockholm Stripe with Dawn Chorus, French Ticking with Flora and Fauna, and more.
