Stripy Seat Pads

Stripy Seat Pads

The Stripes Company stripy seat pads with piping are bright, fun seat pads ideal for kitchen, conservatory or garden chairs.
These lovely stripe seat pads have matching piping all around the edge and 16 knots across the surface of each cushion.
We make them in a choice of 18 stripy patterns from our 100% cotton fabric range. The stripes may vary from the images as it depends on where the pattern is cut on the fabric.

Each stripy seat pad measures approx : 40 cms x 40 cms seam to seam across the cushion and is approx 7cm deep

You can mix and match or choose different colours, which ever takes your fancy!

Fabric to Make Dog Beds

A clever customer has used our fabric to make dog beds

We love showing you what customers make with our striped fabrics

Mary M told us that she found our ‘ideas blog” with examples of what people are making with our fabric and thought we might like to share her idea of making dog beds with fabric from the Stripes Company!.

She had made her daughter some curtains in our lovely fabric, then bought some more fabric to make dog beds for her two rescue greyhounds. She chose the fabric ‘Baseball’ as the colours of the fabric coordinate with her rug!
She told us the dog bed covers she made for the bean bags have worn so well and have washed beautifully.

Blinds For French Doors

There was a time when French and patio doors were seen as the height of exotic chic. They were once the home accessories of only the well to do. They would garner puzzled looks from people who couldn’t believe there was another entrance to the house apart from the front and back door. It was a bit like when you first encountered a video recorder for example as if it was a marvellous machine from another planet. You might think the same when you see our very stripy blinds for French doors.

Blinds for French Doors – pourquoi?

Now nearly everyone has French doors they don’t seem so exotic any more. They let light stream in and allow you to enjoy the splendour of the garden or patio throughout the day. But what about when it’s time to shut out the world? When the light begins to fade the choices are limited. Curtains are heavy and expensive, Venetian and roller blinds are clumsy and difficult to use in this location. The simplest system in our stripy view is vertical blinds for French doors.

Next Years Hottest Fashion Colours

Each season PANTONE® creates a Fashion Color Report outlining the key colour trends – and the forecast for Spring 2016 at New York Fashion Week draws its inspiration from fashion.

Now although we at The Stripes Company occasionally flaunt the fact that we are able to take sartorial taste to a new level (please see Dan and Tilly in our previous post showing the versatility of stripes) it would take a brave soul to wear all these Pantone colours together

hottest colours - pantone colours spring 2016

They may be better appreciated and enjoyed from a distance – perhaps as an accent –  and we would encourage you to think laterally or vertically.
A few mixed piped square cushions on your sofa perhaps?
