Like a wide linked cuff of silver or gold, Adorn (above) is jewelry for interiors.  On a dense, felted wool ground, two colors of viscose embroidery stitch wide, symmetrical panels, multiplying the lustrous color effect simply by changing direction.

A unique collaboration with the Coral & Tusk studio brings their magical imagery to the interiors market.  In Circus Toile, delicate stitches translate exquisitely fine line drawings onto a natural linen ground, depicting four charmingly imaginary circus vignettes.  Circus Stripe coordinates with a vertically striped pattern embroidered in clear, fresh colors.

A Coral & Tusk signature motif, finely drawn feathers are faithfully recreated in Quill with long, delicate stitches that follow the shape of each form.   Circus Stripe coordinates with bands of fresh, clear color.

Gently filtering light with an elegantly scaled motif, Honeycomb Sheer is double width, reversible and woven with Trevira fibers.  Two filling yarns, one a linen-like slub yarn and the other boasting a high sheen,  color the pattern and create a lovely, shifting moiré, while a weave change encourages puckering in the vertical elements.

Bursting into full, extravagant bloom, our Peony is an exercise in pointillism, with fields of viscose- embroidered ovals defining the shapes against a silk douppioni ground.  Each colorway uses eight embroidery colors, with the dots themselves intricately toned, and each leaf and petal shading from the center to the outer edge.

Tufts of viscose pile dot the surface of Whirl, aligning in orderly concentric circles and filling the spaces in between.  Their varied size and irregular spacing counters the precision of the larger pattern, infusing the design with an unstructured element, as does the organic shading of the panné.

Six new High Performance / Bleach Cleanable patterns form a beautifully balanced group of designs, textures and fibers.  Petal Pusher is a playful yet sophisticated field of abstracted blooms, Record is a finely embossed faux leather, Kinetic uses a fine boucle yarn for its detailed drawing, Knot Tonight brings the classic geometry of an endless knot motif to the group, Fine and Dandy introduces a graceful, damask-like pattern and Reverb sends out waves of irregular shapes in its organic design.
