There’s a new trend-setter in town, and it is fabric – these modern decorative textiles for window treatments and upholstery come with a good dose of drama with a touch of glamour, apart from being fabulously functional. Nya Nordiska has highlighted four new trends with the new 2011 decorative collection: Transparent, Elegant, Natural and Suitable For Contract Use. Falling under the Transparent category, the likes of Rosario, Tai Chi and Visiona stand out for their barely-there quality. Elegant (both by name and by design) are the Constance or Granada. The Natural textiles like Elena, Hawai or Malinka, offer a more transitional “furniture” feel. And for the practical designers out there, the modern fabrics made for contract use are easy to clean, low-maintenance and fire retardant. If utility is your cup of tea, check out the Cordoba CS, Liska CS, Multi-Pli CS or Voyage CS. Whether you’re looking for a statement piece or a practical one, these glamour textile designs will easily find a place in any home. To learn more visit .
