The Basics

The Basics is our application of the “basic black dress” concept to creating a variety of décors. “The Basics” are a set of solid color fabrics from which we create complete sets...dinette slip covers, curtains, bed spreads, pillow shams, throw pillows and window valances.  Then we can substitute some of these “Basics” pieces with those made using accent fabrics...to establish an overall coordinated look.  The concept allows any number of combinations to offer variety—and a single “Basic” set can be used with more than one group of accent fabrics.


The colors we have settled on for The Basics are Camel (tan), Chinese Red (Red), Ivy (Green), and Ebony (Black). These colors are all the same sturdy quality hopsack weave that has a fused backing for stability, has excellent body , and functions well for alll applications from curtains to slip covers.


In addition to The Basics we have a variety of complementing Vinyls and Ultra Suedes that can be used in much the same way as The Basics...complementing an assortment of accent fabrics. Ultra Suede is great because it is sturdy, adds texture, is nice to the touch and is washable. They can be used instead of The Basics or in conjunction with The Basics...
