This color palette of “get back home” are consists of monochrome color, taupe, beige, white. This recreate of feeling homey at same time, and cozy and light. For the materials are including Linen look, chiffon, and polyester.

BEAUTY CHIC

Beauty chic gives us comfortable and mellow feeling also represent romantic ambiance. Pastels bring a lot in this palette.

Upholstery Fabrics faced year 2013

I wanna tell you about my experience while I’m attending exhibition of textile for upholstery in Shanghai last august. This 1st time for me attend exhibition in international scale and I’m so excited about what I get after the exhibition.

From this exhibition I learnt a lot about upholstery, curtain, sheer and display unit. It’s quite different from my country’s exhibition (Indonesia. red)

So here they are my conclusion about Intertextile Shanghai 2013, especially in Home Interior Trend 2013 (it’s next year d’oh :D );

  1. All exhibitors Asia represent printed and embroideries fabrics in upholstery, curtain, vitrage (more like in Europe and America).
  2. For the materials they chosen linen and cotton looks for their collections.
  3. For the colors not change from the previous trend, they still use same mood but the colors reflects more about natural ambiance.
  4. For interior looks they combine east and west style (modern and traditional looks)

 

These are theme of the exhibition (2013 Trend);

Primal Future, Decorum Play, Expressive Nature,  Sensual Well Being

 (and here some display and products)

hope i will attend another exhibition in different country next year, and it will be great :D

Make your Old Sofa to Updated One

Kind of bored with your sofa’s look, here some tips before you plan recover your sofa. Make some old style sofa to updated look one;

  1. Make sure your sofa/chair still in good condition
  2. Measure and take a picture of your sofa/chair (it’s needed for next step)
  3. Find and browsing fabric upholstery’s store that provide a good quality fabric.  I can tell you some of them :
    1. Vania Fabric Showroom – Jl. Panglima Polim Raya No. 108B Kebayoran Baru Jakarta Selatan (0217253093)
    2. Home Décor – Jl. RS Fatmawati Raya No. 5C – 5D (0217393391)
    3. Serba Antik – JL. RS Fatmawati Raya No.15 Komplek Golden Plaza D-best Blok A 4-5 (0217507511)
    4. Amardeep - Jalan Fatmawati 75  12140 (0217207601)
    5. Ateja
  4. You can directly go to the store that I mention above, sometimes they provide a recover service for your sofa moreover they have service that can make new sofa/chair. If they have these services, usually they can help you to suggest which fabric that suitable for you and can calculate the quantity for your sofa’s needs. Fyi, Velvet, suede, cotton/linen, and jacquards are fabrics’ type that use in sofa/chair.
  5. You can show your sofa’s picture and measurement’s sofa to the store that you go to. I can give you some clues for how many meters for the fabrics. Three-seater approximately can use from 12-16 meters, for Two-seater/Loveseats can use from 8-10 meters, and for One-seater/Armchair can use 4-6 meters
  6. For make your sofa nicer and looks cute, you can add some cushions with different pattern and color. These will make your room in your house different than before.
