9 images

Embellishment on fabrics and furniture, inspired by folk art patterns, is big news this autumn. Look for inlaid and carved furniture and upholstery with appliquéd designs. Patterns inspired by embroidery are now being machine stitched or printed on to fabrics, bedlinen and wallpaper, making them more affordable.
