My eyes deceived me yesterday (or I didn’t look close enough).
I was wrong about the fabric.
The fabric used on the chair above is actually Lee Jofa/Groundworks “Edo” designed by Kelly Wearstler. See how it compares to the Clarence House fabric I had found below.
The fabrics are similar but definitely not the same! The Kelly Wearstler fabric runs around $117 a yard, while the Clarence House is more like $146. Thanks to reader, Libby, for the heads up!
Neither is cheap.
Do you like one, both?
I obviously love this fabric because it is in my kitchen….
I spotted it on pillows the other day….
What really struck me is how this fabric changes based on its surroundings. The orange in the room really brings out the orange in this fabric (which is a pink and more orange-y mix). And then there is that Manuel Canovas floral…
What do you think?
I have been spending A LOT of time at the design center lately. Like, way too much time….my car could probably drive itself there. Before the holidays I was in Lee Jofa the day they were putting out the new sample wings for Suzanne Kasler’s new line. I wanted to blog about it right away but I ran out of time. It does not disappoint.
I have chosen all of my window treatments for our house……no turning back….they’ve been ordered…..but if I hadn’t…..this beauty would need to find its way in. Don’t you think it would work equally well in a sophisticated nursery as it would in a cozy guest room?
I also love the colors in the “Montmartre” pattern. And it is available in a total of 5 colorways.
There are also a lot of basics in this collection, great solids, stripes and upholstery options. If you go to Lee Jofa, you can search on her collection. Almost all of them have been photographed at this point.
It is hard to go wrong with someone like Suzanne Kasler in the driver’s seat.
Do you agree?
Ok, if you read blogs it is no news to you that these fabrics have hit the showrooms. You can see the full collection here. I remember the excitement I first had when I saw a test run of this fabric over a year ago. I so wanted to blog about it….but someone else had the same thought and was scolded by Lee Jofa for posting so I resisted. I will admit to having some modest yardage in my stash.
The patterns and colors scream cheerful to me! In fact, on the walls in the below image is one of my favorites, “Happy Plaid.”
There are just so many vibrant colors and patterns.
I don’t have a fabulous beach house where I can go crazy with all of these fabrics. But, I do have a space in my home with a couple in mind…..
What do you think? Could someone be happy in this room?
I am a big fan of Suzanne Rheinstein’s “Hollyhock” fabrics for Lee Jofa. In fact, I used her “Folie Chinoise” fabric in the living room of our old home. I brought the panels with me and they’ll be repurposed somewhere in the new home.
“The latest collection from Suzanne Rheinstein for Lee Jofa, called Hollyhock II, is comprised of beautiful prints, weaves and embroideries inspired by antique textiles in Rheinstein’s own collection. Refined silk, mohair, linen and cotton provide the perfect foundation for her modern interpretation of centuries-old designs from around the world. Combined with her signature palette of blues, greens and neutrals, this collection features soft grays, yellows and lavenders which are new to her color repertoire.”
So, enough about the collection….below is a preview. I cannot wait to go see these fabrics in person!
What do you think? See anything you like?
Update–The collection is in showrooms now, but they are still working on getting all of the fabrics photographed for the website so keep checking back (I will do the same!)
For those of you in the North, I hate to admit that we had a weekend of 70+ degree temps. Neighbors met up for impromptu wine, conversation and a play-date for the kids on Friday evening. The parks were packed and everyone was outside on Saturday and Sunday. It really put me in the mood for Spring!
Speaking of warmer weather. This new “Silhouette” print collection for Groundworks / Lee Jofa beckons cheerful and warmer days! Love this yellow print! It makes me happy!
Look at all of these great prints from the new collection. My mind is swirling with the possibilities!
Do you see anything in there that interests you?
