Nicole Fabres Crocus design is simply one of my favourite fabrics, period. Yep, it’s very ‘traditional’, but take a closer look – the colouring is sublimely delicate and actually rather off-beat with its lilacs and sea greens. I have one treasured piece at home as my cushion on our simple, modern, peat-grey sofa and it sits perfectly happily against a modern silhouette as much as it would upholstered onto a pretty antique.
