It's too bad I'm so fussy and vague about what fabric pattern I want - I envision something modern and not too busy. No flowers, maybe something geometric or with flourishes? I'm having trouble finding something online because I have no idea what this style would be called. Oh well, on with my search. Here's sort of what I'd like:
