The new Nate Berkus fabric line that I wrote about last week has arrived at Calico Corners!
My initial impression of the collection was that there weren't as many original patterns as I had expected. Most of the fabrics were in more basic patterns such as herringbone, chevron, subtle stripes, or simple non patterned textures. However, the weight of many of the fabrics was amazing! Like this Belle Terre pattern (shown in Carbon) - although the pattern wasn't all that unique, it was a very heavyweight, rich feeling fabric that I loved! It comes in two additional colorways, one of which is the golden yellow "ochre" that is shown at the the top left of the picture above - it was strikingly beautiful!
and here in Gilt. The Axis fabrics were also the priciest of the bunch at $86.99 a yard.
The Santa Monica pattern (shown in Charcoal) was a simple, classically beautiful option:
as was the Caroll Stripe pattern (shown in Mineral):
I love the Brixby pattern (shown in Paprika) that is available in this pretty colorway as well as three others:
One of the few fabrics that had a unique pattern was El Convento (shown in Mesa) that is available in four colorways. I love this combination of black, cream, and yellow:
The Grenelle pattern (shown in Graphite) is very simple but pretty. It would make beautiful pillows!
Many of the fabrics are available in a plum colorway which doesn't really do much for me but it must be a fairly popular color right now because there are quite a lot of plum fabrics throughout Calico Corners. Overall, the Nate Berkus collection has some very beautiful fabrics with a classic, rich feel but there is less color and fewer original patterns than I had been expecting. What are your thoughts? FYI, if you're planning to go to Calico Corners to check out Nate's Collection, do so by Saturday so that you can take advantage of their Winter Sale and get 25% off your fabric if you find something you love! Hope you all have a great weekend!
