CARTIER & WHISKEY

It’s all about texture. Nothing warms up a room more than plush, rich textiles. They immediately ground a space and instill a cozy vibe. 

The name Cartier instills a feeling of quality and luxury. Cartier is rooted in velvet’s history. Strié velvets have been around for centuries, revered for their quality, elegance, and traditional appearance. Recently strié velvets have evolved to become an essential element in modern and transitional spaces.  

Whiskey is an artisanal chenille upholstery fabric. Intricate, subtle but effective details were applied when developing this striking texture. The designer balanced rich chenille yarns with a combination of weaves and textures to achieve this “new” classic. 

IN SESSION COLLECTION | color inspiration

In Session embodies the quintessential markers of the early 1920s.  Jazz & Art Deco design. The arrangement, a 4-pattern collection inspired by the polyrhythms and improvisations found in their jazz legend namesakes, Calloway, Ellington, Simone and Winehouse. We combined these influences with early 20th-century interiors that were epitomized by rich colors, plush textures and bold design elements.  We wanted these patterns to be infused with history and culture and confidently move them into the modern spaces of our time.

To round out this collection we incorporated complementary textures, Soho, Prima & Whiskey

Ellington is loosely inspired by the Dutch painter Mondrian in his Modernist style of the late 19th & early 20th centuries. This pattern has the perfect balance of shape & color.

Winehouse exudes classic Art Deco design elements, heavy geometric influence, triangular shapes and smooth straight lines. Winehouse, and it is available in 5 distinct colorways.

In contrast to the sharp lines of the Modernist period and distinct Art Deco design elements, Calloway opens the door to a new organic, nature-inspired design direction. It’s softer lines and flowing all over design are detailed by a subtly printed rustic background that enhances the loosely drawn florals.

Shifting directions to a more elaborate organic form and the Art Nouveau movement, Pattern Simone, inspired by William Morris’s classic style, is a striking, climbing, large scale floral. It has the distinct overall feel of an authentic woven tapestry or hand-carved block print design.
