This re-emergence wasn’t just on the high-end side of the scale; lower to mid-price manufacturers sported Savile Row inspired covers, too. Here is a peek at some of the dashing looks sported by upholstery around High Point.
Houndstooth was seen in several showrooms, adding a classic note.
American Leather featured black and white houndstooth check on its Matteo chair.
Flexsteel featured multi-hued houndstooth on its Allison chair.
Plaid made a showing as well.
Chaddock featured a chair in salmon check, an ode to Guy Chaddock’s traditional legacy.
Flexsteel chose gray plaid for its Collins collection.
Windowpane fabric made its presence known.
Norwalk featured navy windowpane fabric for seat and cushion on a navy leather chair.
Ashley’s Valerani ottoman is covered in windowpane fabric as well.
