Designers Dish on Stripes and Chevrons

Posted by Nicole King on Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Hello from the girls at DR Fabrics! We love the way fabric can take any space from good to gorgeous. We spend our days in the showroom surrounded by collections of fabric for every season and every style, from simple to luxe. Let us introduce you to a few of our favorite decorative fabrics!


Stripes are timeless and universal. They work with every design style you can think of, whether it's traditional, transitional, contemporary, or something else.

Maddy’s a big fan of this chic stripe from Covington. “It’s farmhouse meets traditional and can go anywhere for anything! Plus, who doesn’t love a neutral?"

Leslie “can’t get enough of the blush and warm jewel tones in the striped upholstery fabric from our Rowe furniture line. It’s perfect for fall!"


Chevron is everywhere right now. After years of minimalism, the excitement of a zigzag variation on a stripe enlivens any design.

Kelly loves the way this blue T N T fabric embodies both chevron and stripes, all in one!

Bold Yet Balanced

Chevron and stripes can make a bold statement. To soften the impact a bit, select a stripe or chevron fabric with a soft texture or a monochromatic color palette. Use them strategically so as not to overwhelm the space. We’re experts at the art of creating a balanced, cohesive look. We love the way new fabric can enliven a living room or refresh a bedroom. Even something as simple as newly-covered throw pillows can make a big statement! Come on by and let us help you select the perfect stripe, chevron, or pattern for your space and your style.
