Crazy for Quadrille

{Even the devilish Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada loves Quadrille. The sofa is covered in Quadrille’s Melinda fabric in black.}

There are fabrics that become emblematic of a certain period or style. Every once in a while a pattern will come along that people go crazy for, like Kelly Wearstler’s Imperial Trellis or Schumacher’s Chiang Mai Dragon. Quadrille’s fabrics transcend trends. They have so many amazing, graphic patterns that date back for decades and look just as fresh now as they did then. With several collections including China Seas, Alan Campbell and Home Couture, Quadrille has become an icon in the design world. While their patterns are great any time of year, I can’t help but think of their collections of fabrics as perfect for summertime. Plenty of designers choose to make really bold statements with Quadrille fabrics, while others use a bit more restraint. How would you use Quadrille? Would you go over the top with it or add a small touch to a room?

  1. That Eddie Ross table visits me in my dreams on a very regular basis.

    I love Quadrille for the graphic prints that I usually don’t gravitate to…they just make them so beautifully appealing.

    Question: my dining room visions are veering towards shabby-chic territory. Would a graphic pattern like one of these help to bring it back a little?

  2. I’m a pattern and color girl, but many of these are just way too much for me. When it’s just a touch, it’s truly fabulous. I like viewing the over the top ones, but I could NEVER live in a space like that. I need more flexibility to change out my textiles!

  3. Quadrille and China Seas are really remarkable companies. I buy all of my Quadrille fabrics from DecoratorsBest, they have the absolute best prices online. Do you guys shop there?

  4. My restraint in decorating would only allow me to add a touch in my home, but I completely adore the over the top images. Saving that for my imaginary beach house so I wouldn’t tire of it!!
