8 fabrics for creating a botanical feel

Introducing leafy greens and fresh florals to your interiors is the perfect way to make your living space feel connected to the outdoors. Not only are plants perfect for adding a colour accent, they actually help to make your home a happier place to live too by cleansing the air of toxins and increasing oxygen.

But if tending to plants isn’t your strong point, creating a botanical feel through your fabric choices is the perfect way to bring the outside in. And, in our 130 different fabrics, we have the perfect shades to allow you to do just that. From gorgeous foliage inspired greens, to pretty petal hues. So, if you want a home that’s a fresh as a summer garden, these 8 fabrics will help you achieve it.

Linen Cotton Pistachio

This beautifully soft feeling fabric is perfect for bringing a sense of nature into your home. A blend of manmade and natural fibres, it has cotton like appearance, and lovely texture to the touch that wears well over time too.

Viscose Cotton Rocksalt

This soft and luxurious fabric feels amazing to the touch but it’s also exceedingly hard wearing too. So, it’s the perfect choice for a sofa, sofa bed or accent armchair and in our Rocksalt colour, it’s also great for giving living spaces a botanical boost.

Textured Chenille Eggshell

If fabrics with a distinctive soft feel appeal to you, look no further than our Textured Chenille. This one uses individual yarns woven together And, Eggshell perfectly complements darker shades of leafy greens to create a botanical feel.

Cotton Fennel

Although our House Collection Cottons feel 100% like real cotton (not to mention incredibly soft) they’re actually made of manmade fibres. So, they have a wonderfully natural look and feel but with the added benefit of being hypoallergenic too and incredibly hardwearing too!

Highland Tweed Cornsilk
