Diego Burdi

Loro Piana
Classics

These solid color cashmere fabrics have an inspiring depth and richness. They’re perfect for foundation pieces when we’re designing complex, layered spaces.

Holly Hunt
Great Plains, Take Direction

The sophisticated palette and subtle texture lends itself to a tailored modern-classic look, terrific for creating a beautiful backdrop.

Jack Lenor Larsen
Peking
www.larsenfabrics.com
The rich pile of the silk velvets is unequaled; it’s stunning. We reserve the couture feel of the Peking line for very special, signature pieces, adding a sophisticated accent to any room.

Christina Romann

Pindler & Pindler

Pindler Green Fabrics, Tybolt
www.pindler.com

Maharam Design Studio

This is a great fabric for the workplace, school, or home and for anyone with high sensitivities to dyes and metals. It’s a nice pattern with several offered colorways. It is constructed of 77 percent post-consumer recycled polyester, made with heavy-metal-free dyes with high exhaustion rates, and is Greenguard and Greenguard for Children & Schools certified for indoor air quality.
