Do these work?

Just wondering if these fabrics work together. I have also attached a sample of my rug? any suggestions on fabrics that would work better. The fabric I must keep is the checker fabric. Thanks.

Where are the fabric going to be used? The lightest one is very light...could sorta "get lost" next to the main carpet if it will be used by it.

I think you need to change one. Maybe a brighter one to match your rug. Not much contrast with those three. What are they being used for?

The plan is for the light one to be used on a sofa, the diamond one on a wing chair and teh checker fabric is already on two Louis chairs.

Hmm. I wonder if the diamond one is too small scale of a pattern?

I think they work. I would add a couple of blue pillows though.

The small scale chevron reads as a solid from a distance so I would be inclined to go with a larger print on the wing chair or perhaps even leather.

I was afraid it would all sort of blend together too much...

They work together nicely. A neutral backdrop on these pieces is a fine idea, the rug will be the star but the diamond with the red dot is a classic way to nod to red. I think sofas should be neutral so you can do more in future with them.

The fabrics look good together, I do agree with Jayme though that a stripe could work in nicely.

Don't listen to me...fabrics are not my forte! However, maybe a stripe worked in to the accessories or an ottoman would look good? A wider stripe. Just thoughts.

Need a bigger scale print as one of the prints. I had a hard time with this myself - I liked all small or medium scaled patterns.
