Fabri-alcoholics there is a new fabric collection at Lee Jofa that combines past and present for perfect. To celebrate their rich history, Lee Jofa asked seven of today’s top designers to dig into their archives and pull a favorite document print and then reinterpret to make it Modern based on their signature palette and style.
Love the concept; and for the most part, I like what the designers have done to create the Heritage collection.
Diamond and Barratta don’t disappoint with a ribbon and flora chintz recolored into two looks- a blue and white toile and Chocolate grounded floral with a decidedly English feel. Best part of the chocolate colorway is the blown up mural as a backdrop.
Suzanne Kasler reinterpreted a Shiraz/Suzani print by rescaling and choosing neutrals. It looks entirely different -sort of global imagery gone chic.
Which one is your favorite? Tell us by taking the poll in the sidebar.
