I think this is a textured fabric, and the dimension would be great on an accent chair.
These sweet, simple stripes would look lovely in a whitewashed room with vintage furniture.
I love a beautiful floral, and the colors of this one — mint, poppy and lilac — make a stunning combination. I would love to see this fabric on curtains paired with a lavender velvet settee. So feminine and pretty.
This is another great floral fabric. I love the small scale, which would pair well with a larger geometric to keep it feeling more modern.

Now this is my favorite fabric of the bunch! The gingham plaid with various lavender tones and subtle touches of yellow is amazing. I would use this for a duvet cover and maybe a bedskirt, and then pull out the yellow in accent pillows.
I love Clarence House fabric, and these animals are so quirky and enchanting. Plus, this mulberry tone is quite unique.
