Last week the design team went to the Museum of Art and Design to see an exhibit titled Pathmakers: Women in Art, Craft and Design, Midcentury and Today. The exhibit focuses on a core group of pioneering female artists from the 50's and 60's who made an impact in the use of alternative materials such as textiles, ceramics, and metals. The legacy of these women is relayed through a section of the exhibition that presents works by contemporary female artists and designers that echo and expand upon the work of the earlier generation. Check out a few images of the beautiful works below!

We had a very successful photoshoot at our warehouse photo studio this week! In a continued collaboration with Avery Boardman and with the help of many others, we were able to photograph some of their beautiful pieces upholstered in select fabrics from our most recent collection, Fusion! Here is a behind the scenes take on the shoot. Above are Zinnia, Color Guard and Sedan Plush on the pillows with West Coast on the sofa. Those are Vito's legs, he was our model for the day.

One of the freshest surprises in this collection is the color pink, starring in the sophisticated group above.  At its most demure in our velvet Sedan Plush, this color pushes the offbeat geometry of Color Guard, a painterly block design of various weaves, in a particularly modern direction.  The color deepens in Bedford, a beautifully scaled plaid, where it’s paired with grey and white - the two tones that also brush Cobble Hill’s casual surface with the random variations of mélange yarns.

This group literally piles pattern on top of pattern!  From the top: The Joy of Hex, a hexagonal motif of matte and lustrous yarns, horizontally striped with bands of color; Magic Eye Velvet, a supple panné velvet striped with the tones of two space-dyed yarns; Color Guard, a finely woven geometric with various weave effects; Engagement, a lush and curvaceous voided velvet; Striptease, a richly textured surface woven with strips of burnished faux-leather; Alloy (background), this perennial favorite - softly metallic and crosshatched with color - welcomes six new colorways.

With an intricate play of color and luster, the strong, classic shapes of The Joy of Hex take on a boldly animated and graphic quality.

West Coast earns its casual creds by weaving multi-fiber bouclé yarns - one heathered, one just white - in the warp and weft, washing the textured surface with fresh, clean tones.  The second pattern in this cheerful duo is Zinnia, a hand-drawn motif, floral yet tailored, woven with a thick-and-thin viscose yarn against a finely checkered ground.

Sunrise Linen weaves four weft colors against a white warp, transitioning in a gentle rhythm from pinstripes to denser areas of color, finely mixing individual picks of color in a large, airy repeat.
