Try a Different Way of Combining Fabrics for Striking Results!

This charming runner will be a lovely accent for your table. Give it any mood you want through fabric selection. Fun, bold colors are just as inviting as more sophisticated combinations.

The runner will be eye-catching in fabrics for any season. It’s easy to imagine it in Christmas colors, fun Halloween prints, and patriotic colors for summer.

This striking design features a center section that contrasts with the outside “border.” The runner almost seems like a runner within a runner.

Choose a focus fabric and select colors from it for the rest of the runner. Notice how prints run down the center framed by solids in a contrasting color combination around the outside. While you can use all prints, the design will be enhanced with quieter prints for the border area.
