Fresh Fabrics Friday: Robert Allen's Cats Cradle

Looking for a great geometric pattern for pillows or window treatments?  I've got the perfect fabric for you, Robert Allen's Cats Cradle. This 55% linen 45% rayon fabric has a beautiful hand, comes in eight great colors, has a small repeat and is ideal for soft furnishings of any kind.




What I love about this pattern is that it is the perfect compliment to other patterns, it is modern, crisp and graphic, but it can also stand alone and be the center of attention.

Even though it is not a heavy duty upholstery fabric, it looks fantastic on an occasional chair (I recommended it for this chair in a Room Rx project).

Cats Cradle is the ideal weight for a slipcover...

How about for drawer fronts on an Ikea Rast dresser update?

Janell from Isabell & Max Rooms used Cats Cradle to cover her pendant lampshades in this DIY project.  Fresh and crisp, right?  Here the pendants and fabric are the star of the show, lending a modern edge to this beautiful, classic kitchen.

A mix of patterns on the bed in this adorable boy's room by Charm Home Design shows how the pattern works well as a team player.

You can even find this fun pattern on pillow covers and window panels through Etsy.


You like?  Favorite color? Have you used Cats Cradle on a project?  Leave a comment and tell us about it, even better, share a link or photo!

Have a great week-end what ever you are planning.  My kids are officially on Summer break after today.  Finals are over as are all of the end of year field trips, activities and commitments.  Do you hear me breathing a sigh of relief?  Let the relaxation begin...!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design
If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx!

Thanks for including my pendants, and we have identical pillows, but I think we've already marveled at that coincidence! LOVE Cats Cradle, a fabulous print for so many uses!

Great fabric, isn't it? And it's on sale (today only) at Fabric.com for 40% off! Actually the chair was reupholstered rather than slipcovered.
