Mid-Week Design Inspiration: Grain Sack Upholstery Love
I love the sense of rustic elegance that grain sacks invoke.  The beautiful texture, timeless simplicity, and durable construction make them appealing fabric for upholstery.

This classic, blue-striped, grain sack complements the worn, gray finish and beautiful lines of this French country chair.

This gorgeous settee is from my favorite boutique in Santa Cruz, Saffron and Genevieve.  Scarlett, the owner, has amazing taste and her shop is full of beautiful antiques and interesting, unique items.  Click on the link above to check out her inspiring shop and if you are ever in the the area, you have to stop by in person.

This room, featuring a chair upholstered in an antique grain sack, is so warm and inviting.

I really like the antique grain sacks with faded, stenciled numbers and letters too.

Look at the slubby texture of the homespun, linen, grain sack used to upholster this simple side chair.
Something about the authentic quality of the old, grain sack fabric, makes me feel at home.

You totally had me at "grain sack", Amanda! Oh my goodness! I'll be the first to admit.....I am a total grain sack addict. I love the nubby texture, the faded stripes, and everything you can do with them. Let me know if you know someplace in the U.S. where I can purchase some more! The only ones I've found are overseas and shipping is outrageous. :)
