Colour and Pattern
Brightly coloured or patterned fabric is a great way to spruce up a dull space and ensure your accent piece gets the attention it deserves.
A calm and peaceful neutral colour scheme will allow the curves and form of the wingback to be appreciated. Neutral walls ensure high-quality furniture, to be the centre of attention. The use of neutrals also highlights different textures in the interior.
Choosing textured upholstery fabric will bring interest to your chosen room, creating depth as well as a warm, well-designed space.
