Racing stripes are a growing trend in fashion and home decorating, and upholstery is a great way to add this classic and fun look to your home or office. Find inspiration on the track from speedsters like Herbie, the Love Bug, and classic Porsche 911’s. Style writer Patricia Sheridan touted the vertical stripe treatment in her recent article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Here are some examples from the track and fashion to spark your creativity.
Blawnox Upholstery has been adding racing stripes to some fantastic pieces for years. A singular vertical line can add a sleek subtle or bold touch to a traditional sofa or chair, or it can compliment and highlight the lines of a more contemporary piece. It’s a perfect way to add a personal touch, as you can see below in a few of the pieces we have made. We can help you create your own signature fabric using solid colors, solids with patterns, or even mixed patterned fabrics. Play with color, play with texture, and race your way to your favorite piece of furniture.
