What goes with what??? Lemon Magna and Steel Trail combo

It's been a LONG time since our last post we know. We stay so busy trying to keep things in the shop running smoothly that blog posts always seem to take absolute last priority. Anyway, we would like to highlight a couple of our newer prints - the Lemon Magna and Steel Trail patterns that we think are pretty cool and funky. It always surprises us to see how well a fabric coordinates with others, especially when it can morph into different shades which is just what these two do.

These two prints can both work wonderfully with warm colors like our Oatmeal Linen (ok, it works well with just about everything) and Taupe Twill.

But we also love how the Lemon Magna and Steel Trail fabrics have a lot of gray in them, so they also look great with our sturdy Graphite Twill as well.

Of course, we always recommend ordering swatches to test out any fabrics in your own home first prior to ordering slipcovers. Because just like how paint takes on different shades in different light, so does fabric. And as much as we like happy surprises, we really don't like the unhappy ones. Have a great weekend everyone!
