The No Chintz team have been permanently upholstered to their chairs, enthralled by this season’s House Rules on 7 series. Who are your hot favourites to win? We have all our buttons and trimmings backed on Adam and Lisa, who clearly have an eye for good quality fabrics. We were absolutely thrilled when the duo chose two sets of curtains from our fabric collection on episode 1 of House Rules on Seven. The fabrics used were Maya in Indigo and Awning Stripe in Acid Yellow. No Chintz is a Proud Supplier of House Rules on 7 – we can’t wait to see what the coming weeks reveal. Here’s how you can use the No Chintz featured fabrics in your own home….
Maya is a contemporary ikat. “The ikat warp has the design dyed into it before it is woven,” explains fabric expert and No Chintz owner, Chrissie Jeffery. “It requires great skill and afterwards produces some strange weaving irregularities – all part of the charm!” The Maya ikat in Indigo is a heavy weight cotton and can used as curtains, quilts, lampshades and more. No Chintz has a great range of woven ikats in spots, mosaics, multi-colours, single colours and traditional designs.
It’s as versatile as they come, works great with contemporary interiors and can be used to create almost anything, from cushions and blinds (looks fab in children’s rooms), to bedheads, lampshades, casual chairs… the options are endless. Awning Stripes make a great backdrop for a fresh and breezy, beachy theme for coastal homes and nautical themes. The No Chintz Awning Stripe collection are made from textured twill woven cotton and come in a range of colours including Denim, Capri, Acid Yellow, Charcoal, Cumquat, Fern, Musk and Taupe.
