The We Love Color Collection

Color runs the gamut in the trio of unique surfaces shown above.  The twisted yarn used in We Love Color brushes the surface with faint vertical strokes of tone-on-tone color.  Cultured Cotton’s simple equation is that very fine mercerized cotton yarns, a warp satin construction, double width looms and a long, refined color line equals the essential, affordable window fabric.  And Carriage Car, with the appeal of a cotton velvet, offers a dense all-polyester pile, combed with delicate horizontal voids.

Exuberant texture in clear colors is the theme of these two like-minded upholstery patterns.  Dottie takes the optical route, with rows of dimensional matelasse dots aligned in a lustrous grid on a corded cotton ground.  Do Si Do turns to a lively boucle yarn to weave its soft, nubby surface.

Embroidery acts as an artist’s tool in Etched Floral, sketching confident strokes of metallic color on a douppioni ground, working stitches that change direction to follow a shape, and drawing abstract forms that assemble into flowers and fill the remaining space.  In the end, the surface becomes a remarkably evanescent experience of light and shadow.

Technology reveals it’s flare for drama in Ruffle, a fascinating window fabric.  It starts simply enough, with two layers of fabric- one, a bare whisper of nylon organza, the second, a reflective polyester taffeta.  The two are embroidered together at regular intervals with sinuous lines of stitching, while a laser cuts only the taffeta into wide vertical ribbons that seem to hang freely in the air.
