Baker announced this week the debut of a new textile collection with designer Philip Gorrivan.
The Philip Gorrivan Fabric Collection for Baker includes 11 fabrics, representing Baker’s first guest designer textile collaboration since launching its flagship fabric showroom in New York City last year at 200 Lexington Avenue.
The new fabric collection ranges from a lustrous silk and cotton sateen cloth to crisply tailored men’s suiting adaptations, along with a lightweight silk and wood blend in a tweed effect that’s offered in 13 updated and sophisticated colors.
“I believe that ‘tailoring’ and the concept of classic menswear fabrics have a very practical and handsome application for the home, so I’ve created a collection ‘evocative’ of suiting, but not a direct representation necessarily,” Gorrivan said.
Highlights of the collection include “Kingsland,” a fine woven mohair with a touch of silk that’s soft and tactile. “Malcontenta,” Gorrivan’s printed signature pattern, uses his signature Palladian tile motif as a graphic pattern on linen. “Montfort” is a precise, reversible wool plaid.
Other offerings are in washed linen, textural sheers, a wool/cashmere blend with a reverse pattern and a wool/damask with a pattern that appears to float. All are upholstery weight, with the exception of four drapery only fabrics. The collection is for indoor residential use aside from the drapery only fabrics.
