One of the most challenging aspects of vintage furniture restoration is choosing a fabric that is appropriate to the period. Finding a catalog that tells you what was used on the original is a godsend, and discovering that the fabric...or even something very similar...is still in production is nothing short of a miracle.
Kvadrat is a leading Danish manufacturer of design textiles. Founded in 1968, the company has supplied leading architects and designers with fabric for their projects for decades. Their first and most iconic fabric was Hallingdal 65, which many consider a perfect choice for mid-century restorations.

In 2012, Kvadrat celebrated Hallingdal 65. Numerous designers submitted projects using the fabric in fun and creative ways, demonstrating the versatility of the product. Here are a few that caught my eye.
