Where does fabric inspiration come
Yearning for yellow? Re-thinking red? Tempted by taupe? Flip through our Color Stories to see how we make sense of color.
The extraordinary Painted Velvet shown here, a lush striae of eighteen colors brushed through areas of cut and loop pile, defines the essence of our fabrics - patterns that generously fill their particular niche - window coverings, bold upholsteries, innovative embroideries, and countless other categories - with thoughtful graphics, careful craftsmanship and exemplary value. This is evident throughout our history and our line, and continues to be the case for the twenty-five patterns in this collection. We are excited about the six double-width sheers that are included, as well as the introductions that expand our Pure and High Performance groups. You’ll find modernist graphics, intricate weaves and unique yarns - and perhaps even a fresco. Welcome to the Rise and Shine collection!
About Our Collections
The POLLACK textile collection has grown over the last 26 years to encompass more than 2500 colorways for upholstery, wallcovering and window fabrics. Design Director Rachel Doriss and the studio designers have created our signature line working with mills throughout the world. We like to work with mills that have unique and fascinating yarns, and a range of capabilities that have not been applied to decorative fabrics before. We look for mills that specialize in particular fibers and finishes, and for those that bring the very detail-oriented approach of apparel fabric manufacturing to the art of weaving fabrics for interiors. Whatever the source, each of our fabrics represents extensive development time, careful production oversight and a commitment to good design. Additionally, the studio strongly believes that design implies utility: if you don’t design fabrics that can really be used, they are badly designed regardless of how beautiful they are.
Our line includes a wide variety of fabric types – velvets with silk, mohair or even acrylic piles, window fabrics with an intriguing mix of layers and complex yarn arrangements, upholstery fabrics using the newest man-made fibers and those with hand-embellished motifs. The range is sophisticated, beautiful, superbly crafted and one that complements all of today’s interiors – from restaurant to reception room, from the airport lounge to the aircraft, from shoe salon to family room to poolside.
The design process starts with one particular element of the fabric, though not necessarily always its pattern – an interesting novelty yarn, a special finishing technique or a complex weave structure that imparts a nuanced quality to the fabric. While the objective is to create textiles that delight the eye and hand, equal regard is given to a consistently high level of quality and performance.
