April is the time when new fabrics are rolled out by the most discerning fabric houses. Interior designers were invited to Design Trade in the Strip District to preview the new collections. It was a festive and inspiring time!
My favorites were from opposite ends of the decorating scale. Classic and clean versus edgy and quirky.
Thibaut showed some crisp traditional fabrics with a twist.
By the way, we were so inspired by the butterfly paper above we decided to use it in a little girl's bedroom as an accent wall.
My other favorite from the Spring Market preview was a French company, Élitis. Sometimes highly textured, sometimes three dimensional, and sometimes completely out of scale. Just fantastic. Their coverings work in both both comercial as well a residential environments.
