Fabrics and upholstery have a huge decorative potential. Besides setting up the style of a room, they are perfect elements to renovate, or give a fresh look to, any space: cushions, curtains and bedding will easily transform any living area. The same versatility displayed when dressing interiors are also echoed when it comes to upholstering furniture. A good sofa longing for a second chance, a faded and old-fashioned armchair… textile collections are, without a doubt, of great help when we try to integrate these pieces into contemporary décor. Nowadays, trends are not only much more established, but also change much more frequently than in previous years.
At Gancedo we have upholstery that is ideal for modernizing classic seats, be they ours or from one of the many international firms that we exclusively distribute.
Fashionable prints and colors
Upholsteries in neutral tones
Our Tramuntana upholstery is an ideal option for those times when we want to update an armchair without risking much. Neutral colors, be they in light or dark shades, are easy to mix and match and fit into any interior design. They are, without a doubt, a timeless solution.
Chicago is the name of another of our collections. It is a simple geometric design with a golden “Filadice” backdrop. The texture of the fabric is very sensual and the color palette is smooth and impeccable. To combine this pattern you have two design choices: a thousand-stripes weave and an exquisitely finished plain fabric.
Combining plain upholstery and print
The current trend of playing with plain and patterned upholstery in the same color gamut adds a little extra design punch to any seat. American firm Robert Allen, in their latest collection Drenched Color, propose alternating an intense blue velvet with a delicate cachemir print of the same color but with a white backdrop. The Home Maida collection, from English firm Sanderson, includes plain, flora, and stripe designs perfect for mixing and matching.
To bring classic designs up to date, choose upholstery with textures and prints similar to those used for suits by tailors, such as tang, houdstooth or pinstripes. These two images belong to the catalog for Ian Mankin’s latest collection, Ashfield, which comprises wool upholstery.
Delicate floral patterns
We finish up with two designs from the Enchanting Color collection, by Robert Allen. Take into consideration that floral stamps are always the focal point of the décor, and as such, if we don’t necessarily want them to set up the space too much, or to become tiresome with the passage of time, it’s preferable to choose fabrics with discreet prints, reserved motifs and in light colors.
These are just some of the options we offer at Gancedo to renew and refresh old seating. You’ll find many more at our stores.
