We’ll be heading to High Point next week (!), and among other things, I’m looking forward to seeing the new directions for textiles this spring — color, pattern and texture are the best eye candy.
Four notable American fabric houses — Duralee, Kevin O’Brien, Kravet and Thibaut — have new collections on deck for the season, which run the gamut from neutral to bold floral. Read about them below
Duralee’s biggest spring release is the Respite Collection from Bailey & Griffin®. This two-book set of wovens and prints features a juxtaposition of statement-making stylized botanicals and embossed velvets, coupled with versatile basket weaves and classic stripes. Natural fibers like linen and cotton elevate the hand of these rich textiles, and with color schemes that range from warm tones of spice and saffron to cool blues, graphite and moss, the overall aura is one of elegance and rejuvenation.
One of Kevin O’Brien’s High Point intros is this Tapestry linen/cotton blend duvet in Rose Cream. The soft rosy pink paired with its mauve-y counterpart look luxurious atop the ivory backdrop, which makes sense as this design is said to have channeled the tradition of lush botanical artwork.
A new furniture collection in partnership with Hamptons-based design duo Mabley Handler will grace the Kravet showroom in High Point this spring. The 35-piece collection comprised of upholstery, casegoods and occasionals will offer a fresh new perspective for Kravet Furniture that captures the duo’s unique design perspective: coastal sophistication. The soft blue-gray fabric paired with wood in a light veneer, as shown on the sofa down below, create an airy feel sure to be at home in a laidback seaside abode.
New for spring from Thibaut, Oasis is a collection of coordinated Sunbrella indoor/outdoor fabrics that incorporate the great, bold design Thibaut is known for. Greens and blues take center stage, but don’t forget saturated rosy pink and grays as neutral. The high-performance fabrics in this vibrant collection are lightfast and stain-resistant, too, meaning you can dress your poolside as well as your living room.
