Spanish furniture fair offers fresh, perky colors

Carole Sloan, October 7, 2002

While most of the fabric statements at home furnishings shows and in stores in Europe mirrored those of the United States — lots of beige, off-white and the rest of the neutral family — the furniture fair here was full of fresh and perky colors.

Especially interesting and new were a variety of tweeds — soft and supple, and colorful without being garish.

Novelties, including a renaissance of eyelash effects, also saw vinyl-coated fabrics with new techniques, photographic techniques for dramatic prints, unusual leather and suede treatments and lots of soft but dense chenille used against open strie ground.
