Check fabrics can be an ideal choice for curtains and or upholstery, and soft furnishings. If your using this pattern in an interior design scheme, there are some considerations to take into account when using check fabric for curtains, as scale and proportion of the pattern in comparison to your room is as always incredibly important. We find small check designs can look better in small windows, while larger designs are more at home in full length custom curtain designs, and the same rule generally applies when using it for upholstery. Checked fabric is generally woven and the designs can range from small and simple single colour ginghams to extravagant tartans and plaids which combine multiple colours. Of course using checks in a rural cottage environment helps create a town and country feel which designer brands like Ralph Lauren, Mulberry, Sanderson and Linwood Fabrics know only too well especially when you view their check fabric for upholstery ranges. However more modern check and plaid designs with careful choice of colour and material, see the likes of Osborne and Little, Romo fabrics, Moon fabrics for tartan check upholstery fabrics which can also work in a modern setting interior scheme.
