Tips: Design trends for Summer 2013

Be Bold: Use dramatic scaled patterns, sophisticated textures, and vibrant, contemporary colors on small upholstery items such as pillows or side chars. These beautiful designs encompass graphic digital prints, alongside glamorous cut velvet and satin-striped fabrics.

Go Graphic: Take a colorful approach to design with bright colors, modernist forms, bold graphics and embroidery. Renowned designer and tastemaker Jonathan Adler is bringing style, craft, and joy to an exclusive collection of fabrics for Kravet. These cheerful fabrics embody the essence of optimism, which is the core of Adler’s philosophy. Pictured below, right: Jonathan Adler’s collection for Kravet, Suite 105.

Time-tested: Look for outdoor furniture built to withstand the elements that is both beautiful and functional. You can even find fully-upholstered outdoor furniture that offers sophistication and style – bringing the comforts of indoor living outdoors.

Reinvented Function: Select reimagined and functional statement pieces for your kitchen. The contemporary design might serve as a conversation starter, or it might inspire a change in the way you perceive function as it relates to the world.
