There are a few places in my home where I would like to include a console table or small cabinet, but I don’t necessary want it in a wood tone. In some rooms, additional wood pieces would be too matchy-matchy. In other rooms, an additional wood piece may feel a bit cold. These are the situations when fabric-covered furniture comes in handy. My favorites are ostrich or grasscloth, but there are many choices out there. Fabric allows you to soften the line of a structured piece. It also allows you to add texture to a room in an unexpected way.
I like the console below in ostrich. The nail heads also add a bit of additional detail.
The remaining pieces are covered in grasscloth or lacquered grasscloth. I love the texture and many color options that are available.
