Strands of small pearls appear to decorate the linen ground of Beaded Leaves, although it’s actually machine embroidery that simulates a classic French knot stitch with a white cotton yarn.  The vine motif flips horizontally and half-drops as it repeats across the width, creating a larger sense of movement and more complexity in the design.

Two linen and cotton fabrics lead this ‘green’ group: a striae of cut and loop pile stripes Chamfered Velvet, while Garden offers a large-scale warp print that simulates a feathery ikat.  Next is Everest, combining four fibers in a wonderfully thick and heathered yarn.  Fluted Cotton and Resurface follow with linear patterns, the one from fine ottoman rows and the other from bamboo yarns that brush the recycled polyester ground with texture.

Long stitches of a wrapped Lurex thread densely embroider glistening nuggets across the surface of this supple velvet, in a heady combination of luxurious materials.  The embroidery coverage on Razzle Dazzle is so heavy that the velvet is barely visible, and acts more as a faint frosting or haze that peaks out around the motif.

Columns of elliptical forms snug up to each other in Go Go, an energetic polyester-faced matelassé.  Linked together and outlined by ogee curves, the motif sits above the surrounding ground, thickly filled with a heavy cotton stuffer yarn.  The high relief accents the simple graphics of this playful design, and the colorline extends from saturated hospitality tones to restrained neutrals.
