Medallion Fabric: Celebrate style with this all-time favourite
If you want to add some detail to your designs, nothing adds visual interest like the classic medallion pattern. Medallion fabrics feature a large central design, known as a medallion, surrounded by smaller motifs that complement the main print.
These medallions might be round, oval, or square and often placed off-centre within the fabric. The overall effect is a busy, detailed design that can add interest and richness to any project.
Our medallion patterns are perfect for quilts, curtains, and as an upholstery fabric, but they can also be adapted for clothing and other applications. With its timeless appeal, medallion pattern fabric is a popular choice for anyone looking to add a touch of elegance to their designs.
Chenille medallion fabric
Chenille is a soft, plush fabric perfect for various uses due to its incredibly smooth texture and durable nature. While many people use chenille for clothing garments and accessories, it's also ideal for upholstery and soft furnishings because it's comfortable and a good insulator.
Medallion patterns will always be popular, and we stock a range of beautiful designs for all style choices. Our modern collection is full of beautiful patterns, including the intricate and exciting Lomasi Metallic pattern, which adds great depth to any design.
Or, you could opt for something more traditional, like the Vegas Black & Gold Shine Effect fabric with a classic aesthetic.
Cotton upholstery fabric
Cotton upholstery fabric is a popular choice for furniture, as it's durable and easy to care for. Mills make the fabric by spinning fibres from the cotton plant, with the most popular variation being a plain weave, which offers more durability and has tear-resistant features.
When cotton fibres make a medallion pattern, the results are impressive and add a sensational richness to the simplest of colours. The Bruges Medallion Fabric combines neutral beige, blue and red tones, which complements the intricate shapes and brings the entire aesthetic to life.
Velvet drapery fabric
Velvet is one of the most luxurious and elegant fabrics available, perfect for creating a sophisticated. While it can look quite heavy, it's also surprisingly versatile and perfect for curtains or upholstery.
When choosing velvet drapery fabric, there are a few things to keep in mind, including the weight of the material and your favourite design. Due to its luxurious nature, velvet can take over a room, but the right pattern can complement your decor and add layers to the theme.
A top seller in our range is the Casablanca Medallion fabric, which can enhance your home decor and inject some colour with its burst of vibrant green tones. Or you can go for more muted tones, with popular combinations including navy blue, cream, beige and grey for a traditional aesthetic.
