Soft furnishings provide instant gratification
Of all the products that are specified for a particular space, 50 per cent of them are covered in some type of fabric – often referred to as soft furnishings.
Today’s homeowners have an insatiable need for instant gratification, so it makes sense to offer ready-to-go decor fashions. Soft-furnishings, especially window coverings, provide immediate satisfaction and can transform a room. Offer clients three to five basic panel options in linen, silk, velvet, or in a combination of blends. Add a dash of fun with one or two patterns, and make a statement with a large-scale floral. Finish things off with unique hardware and trimmings.
Add new niches to your repertoire with soft furnishings that can withstand the weather for porches, patios and outside retreats.
|Soft furnishings is an extensive category that covers off every room, including outdoor spaces.
- Shower curtains
- Poufs (floor ottomans)
- Table clothes, runners, placemats and napkins
- Sheets, shams, duvets, comforters and bed skirts
- Blankets, throws
- Patio furniture and umbrellas
- Upholstered headboards/bed frames
- Upholstered frames on mirrors and art
- Wall hangings
- Draperies and curtains
