What fabric is used on the pillow on the left (with the trees?) - I went to the John Robshaw website and didn't find it, which leads me to believe it's custom. Also, thank you for being so generous in answering questions!

it was a pillow that robshaw sold on his site at the time we designed this project, which was now many years ago.

this one was from ballard designs and was very reasonably priced. the fabric, however, is from lee jofa and was a splurge. that's what makes the piece special, though-in our opinion.

It's custom - the link shows a tag that identifies the fabric.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Fans consider Betsy's work very complex and meticulously well thought out. Mixing patterns and using neutrals in fresh, unexpected ways isn't a skill picked up through reading a textbook. Betsy, who originally worked in menswear for The Gap, has an in-depth understanding of textiles and tailoring which often shows in her upholstery and seamstress work.
Notice in this photo how the coral of the ikat is picked up in the trim of the window treatments, and the neutral linen tone makes an appearance in many of the pillows. The overall effect is unified but in no way match-y. "A two-color, medium-scale ikat in grassy green and white will look fabulous with a multicolored paisley that has a bit of the same green in it," Betsy says. "Add to this a small-scale leopard print with a white ground (and perhaps one of the colors from the paisley), and you’ve got a cool room. What’s important is to make it look just random enough; in other words, not too perfect."

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Weekend Decorating: Add an Accent of Ribbon
2-inch grosgrain ribbon provides an cost effective accent for top treatments and drapery panels. Apply trim using a glue gun, fabric glue, or fusible web.
Here's a space by the master of pattern mixing and layers, Betsy Burnham. Notice how all three sizes of scale are present on the day bed ensemble.
Samantha Schoech added this to Mismatched Rooms Made in Heaven
This mixes color and pattern. But it also mixes feeling or, as I like to say, vibe. The ikat has an ethnic, boho thing going for it, while the pillows are more traditional. Mixing it up keeps the area from looking too themed.
This daybed is dressed with a custom cover sewn from Lee Jofa's Ikat De Lin 24 fabric. The coral hue is repeated in the trim on the curtains.
Rooms and Words added this to Pin Down a Fabric for Your Couch
Restricting your patterned upholstery to a smaller piece or anchoring it to a corner or a wall will make the look easier for the eye to digest. Here, Betsy Burnham married a gorgeous orange and cream ikat to a window-seat sofa, repeating the colors in the drapery to make the effect less jarring.
Lisa Frederick added this to Feast on Farm-Fresh Color
Tomato gets a softer spin in this space, like the creamiest summer soup you can imagine. The curtain edging and ikat sofa fabric add a shot of vitality without making too much noise.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Curtain Speech
A cornice is a valance’s kissin’ cousin. The only real difference is that a cornice is hard rather than soft. It usually consists of fabric upholstered onto a padded (sometimes shaped) board. It makes very economical use of the textile, in that it is not gathered or pleated, but is tightly stretched. If you have fallen in love with a very expensive fabric, a cornice can make it more affordable. Also, because the fabric is stretched, the entire pattern is revealed.
