April: Dark Coral
Monday April 20, 2015

What is April's color of the month? According to Chase, it's a vibrant yet sophisticated dark coral.

From top to bottom: Orb in fireball, Persueded in poppy, Nest in cardinal, Persueded in paprika, Crosscurrent in wheat and Astronaut in Mars. Snake Charmer in hot pepper lays in the background.


Dottie, upholstered on this great pair of seats that live in our design studio, in all its glory!

Game On, in its red color way,  plays the role of dark coral effortlessly.

Machine Age Velvet At Jack Geary Contemporary Gallery
Wednesday April 15, 2015

Strolling along Varick street on the way to work today, we noticed giant pieces of Machine Age Velvet hanging at Jack Geary Contemporary, a spacious art gallery lined with windows only two blocks away from Pollack HQ...

As it turns out, the artist, Lina Puerta, got some materials for her artwork through Materials for the Arts, an organization that provides a way for companies (such as us!) as well as individuals to donate uneeded supplies to thousands of nonprofit organizations with arts programming and public schools, and chose Machine Age Velvet to include in one of her intricate works titled "Cascara (Peel)" within her exhibition Traces.

It's a complete coincidence that Lina's art, and our very own fabric, ended up two blocks away from our HQ in this great space. What a pleasant surprise!

Make sure to check out Lina Puerta's works, as well as a great review of this exhibit on Hyperallergic.

Thanks to Jack Geary of Jack Geary Contemporary.

'Francois Et Moi'

Erin Francois, the manager at Blended Blue, a showroom that represents us in Minneapolis, was interviewed by House Beautiful recently for a spotlight of her beautiful DIY blog, Francois et Moi. Take a look at the House Beautiful interview here to hear about what inspires her and why she loves DIY projects so much. Our favourite part of the interview is when she mentions how she is a 'textile lover at the very core'... Ditto!

She's got some great DIYs, including her favourite (and ours too!): Hand woodblock printed pillows. We've got a hand woodblock printed fabric too! Priya, from the Jaipur collection. The only difference, really, is that it was printed in India.
