Fabrics

 

One of the foundations of a room is the fabrics and textures it contains.

This is true whether you’re discussing bedrooms and living rooms where fabrics play a very obvious central role or kitchens and bathrooms where the role of fabrics is more specialized or seemingly marginal.  Think of how you interact with rooms in homes.  One of the materials we’re most likely to touch often is fabric.  How it looks matters, but also how it feels shapes our feelings about a room.

The texture and look of the fabrics in your home matter a great deal to how you and others experience living and doing in the space.  Whether you want to go with classic standbys like leather furniture or to emphasize your unique tastes with less common materials for upholstery and curtains, we can make your journey through the vast and varied landscape of fabrics much easier.

How you need the fabric to perform is, of course, a central concern.  Matching window treatments throughout the house can unify the space subtly, even with substantial changes to color and lighting between rooms.  However, the fabrics used for window treatments may be entirely unsuited to upholstering the furniture in your family’s favorite room.  The functionality of fabric lays in its ability to perform the role we need it to well, but also for a long time.  How easy or difficult a fabric is to clean, mend, or replace, and its availability and cost are also big factors for most of our clients.

As designers with decades of collective experience, we’re sensitive to these varied needs, and able to provide expert advice based on your needs, preferences, and the market conditions that affect your project.

The Fabric Selection Process

We first determine the properties you’re going to need for a given application.  The durability, opacity, cleanability, and how aesthetically important a fabric is to the overall look of your room are all factors we will assess and consider before making recommendations.

As important as the properties of the fabric itself are, how the fabric will relate to the rest of your room is also an essential consideration.  The color, texture, and sheen of your fabrics will affect how well they fit in with other materials and colors in your space.

We will provide samples of fabrics that can be felt and examined closely in context with the other materials and colors being considered for your space, to make sure the decision is made with all the necessary information.

Once we have provided you with our guidance and you’ve made a decision that you’re happy with, we will place orders, track and schedule delivery & installation for all the chosen materials, furniture, furnishings and window treatments that will make your newly appointed room feel cozy and inviting.  In a matter of weeks or months, your room will be transformed.

If you’re ready to refresh and update your window treatments, upholstery, or other soft-good furnishings, contact us to schedule a Meet & Greet today.

Wallpaper & Colors

Every type of space, every home, and every family has different tastes and needs.  Our diverse team of designers understands that your identity and desires need to be at the forefront of every design project.  This is why Centerline Design does not have a single “look” or dominant aesthetic, but a team of experts with a range of skills that complement and support each other on the journey to your perfected home.

Our focus on you is what sets us apart from most design firms.  We collaborate frequently on an ongoing basis with you, running several design concepts and versions by you to best understand what makes the most sense for both your lifestyle and your budget.  While we are very cognizant of trends and we’re proud to be lifelong learners who remain current with technologies and designs as they evolve, we are always aware that we are designing for you.  This is why we remain firmly committed to the foundational principles of design, instead of chasing the most recent fads and fashions.

We never forget that after the design phase is done and your space has been remodeled in accordance with our shared vision, you and your family will need to live in the space for decades to come.  So, while we feel that a beautiful and artful design is an important part of making your space the best it can be, we always place an emphasis on simplicity and functionality above pure aesthetics.  After all, the true goal of remodeling is to make a space more perfect, not just to make it more appealing. 

Once finalized, our talented design team works with you, the homeowners, to select all the little details that make it unique: countertops, cabinetry, and appliances, tile, lighting, hardware right down to the window treatments, furnishings and furniture; every hardscaped decorative element of the space is balanced with its utility and your tastes.  Your kitchen, bathroom, living space, bedroom, or other space will reflect your aesthetic wishes and practical needs.

When a design has been completed, Centerline provides detailed drawings and specifications in order to allow contractors and installers to bring this vision to fruition in your home.
