The uses of Clarke and Clarke fabrics

Clarke and Clarke fabrics enable you to connect or cluster seating elements in unison by using seat covers, throws or cushions. By selecting one particular colour, like oatmeal, and overlaying all seats in that colour, whether or not upholstered armchairs, settees or dining-chair seats, an interior is created that is immediately soothing and minimalist.

On the other hand, it might be significantly livened up if additional coloured fabrics or other surfaces - timber, metal, leather, or glass, for instance - were allowed in. A huge range of various designs on imprinted or woven fabrics can exist together so long as there exists a solid colour connection working through them and providing that there are also areas of tranquility, like plain wall surfaces and flooring, to anchor these items.

Furthermore, the many fabric collections from Clarke and Clarke appeal to our tactile sense, resulting in a sense of comfort and warmth. More than any other material, it totally changes a surface area. By introducing a cushion on a painted timber window seat or a large wool throw over the back of a simple couch, it is possible to alter the style and dynamics of seating areas - and the space - with relative simplicity.

Designing your seating

How seating is set up in a room or living area is critical to the success of the area, from both functional and design perspectives. In modest or awkward areas like those below stairways, housing a free-standing piece of seating furniture could be challenging, but a built-in timber box structure covered with loose cushions could make good use of this sort of area, changing it into a fantastic ‘cubbyhole’ seating space for peaceful reading. Give the box seat a lid and, obviously, you've got space for storage as well!

Long, slim living rooms require smart setting up, with groups of items purposefully positioned so the whole space may be used, particularly if diverse activities need to take place in the same room. If the whole living area is one room - whether or not in a huge warehouse or a more humble home - some versatility is essential. Blend smaller things like stools and side chairs with bigger, more imposing items. Mix period- influenced furniture with a contemporary piece or a simple object found in a junk shop. Don’t be unnerved at the idea of bigger items, like settees or benches, being situated in the center of a floor. Put seats at interesting diagonals to ‘break up’ living space. And if the important thing to your space or room is a good workdesk, a chair and a desktop computer, then place them centre stage!

One of themost creaticve uses you can put Clarke and Clarke fabrics to, is the design of cuchsions. Cushions are usually roughly split into two sorts: the ones that fit a specified space and those that lead a far more nomadic existence - the ever-present scatter cushion. The first sort of type, generally ‘box’ cushions, are designed to a certain dimension, determined by the space between the arms and back of a settee or seat, or the proportions of a flat timber bench top or window seat. The second group can be of all shapes and forms and their domain is infinitely diverse. These cushioned, plumped discs and squares of piped, bordered and woven hue can sometimes, surprisingly, be the one component that provides equilibrium and emphasis to a space or furniture item. A person's eye darts about in a space, settling on pattern, texture and colour, so a little cushion or heap of cushions can catch the attention and turn into a link amongst otherwise unrelated objects.
