Luxe Wale in zinnia – up close
Richly textured 100% cotton Luxe Wale upholstery fabric on a sofa or chair is like wearing your favorite corduroys. Familiar, casual, relaxed. You know them and love them. Luxe Wale is woven with vibrant yarn-dyed chenille and small scale cotton yarns in a pattern that creates a subtle, appealing ribbed “wale” surface. And those lush colors? Wow. Perhaps they speak for themselves. They’re custom-dyed to coordinate with the rest of our Maine Cottage colors. Our Luxe fabrics: Wale, Waffle, Loop and Yuri give you an unusual and appealing opportunity to get your hands on designer quality fabric without the “To the Trade Only” rigmarole. Available on our furniture and by-the-yard. Imported from Italy. Try it, you’ll love it.

There are 6 (or more) ways to do just about everything in life. Decorating your home is no exception. Here’s an example of a sunny room where we’ve chosen a Maine Cottage color grouping and played with the sofa color only – in 6 different ways. The effect of one shift in hue can be subtle or dramatic – depending on the size, amount and placement. Curious about color and composition ideas for your home? We make it easy to custom finish furniture to your taste. Call us for a furniture and color consultation.
Here’s a sunny well-composed room of warm whites, yellows, yellow-oranges and saturated oranges. A hint of red give it extra pizazz.
For a lighter, brighter room try combining varied whites and soft yellow-oranges. Fabric patterns, wall color and pure orange give it punch.
Experiment with neutrals warm and cool. The surrounding yellows keep this room warm and light.
A brown hue can be truly neutral if you want the sofa to recede – but the pillows and walls keep it from becoming too flat.
A large amount of red-orange brown as a neutral gives a room balance and depth when combined with lighter accents.
A richer reddish brown neutral gives this room the 6th way to a robustly sunny room.
