Ian Mankin Coast Fabrics
The Ian Mankin Coast fabric collection comprises over 36 choice fabrics from gossamer lightweight sheers to chunky textured chenille in linen and cotton these are traditionally crafted, 100% natural fabrics, designed for those looking for that coastal interior design style. Skilfully woven in Lancashire, by Ian Mankin, these fabrics are accented by deeply saturated cobalt and aged indigo and the collection speaks of a life lived by the sea, calming and restorative. At its core these twenty designs that range from classic stripes, checks and textures are laced with chalky hues of oatmeal and soft white with greyed-sky blues for that coastal feel. There are some standout designs though like Knot
which is an interesting weave but by adding satin/sateen in the fabric it gives a tactile and warm finish and an expressive addition to the Coast range. Maze design is based on the classic Greek key, and with a raised texture it makes this a truly tactile fabric, so why not use this on cushions utilising both sides of the fabric to quickly change the look. Chevron
is bold and a robust, chunky textured chenille containing striking tones of deep cobalt, complemented alongside bleached chalky hues and is perfect for layering with subtler shaded striped, checked and plain fabrics within the Coast collection. Whitby has a fine detailed pattern with a subtle texture that is reminiscent of early mosaic, and in 3 colours it works perfectly as a trim for curtains and for soft furnishings. Truro is an intricately woven pattern that is reminiscent of a checked fabric up close, but the space dyed technique which adds variations in colour creates a soft fabric in a robust, reversible weave. Anyone looking for that bohemian coastal interior design style should be sure to visit the Coast fabric range by Ian Mankin fabrics available to buy online at TM Interiors Limited.
