  1. The KnollTextiles Archival Collection builds off the company’s over 65-year history and its work with multiple designers across many decades. The line’s Striae Stripe is based on Ruby, a 1955 fabric designed by Swedish textile designer Astride Sampe (1909-2002). Design Director Dorothy Cosonas has taken this classic cotton and wool epingle and transformed it into a 9-yarn color warp stripe.
  2. Spring has sprung with Robert Allen’s Color Library: Botanical Color. Inspired by vintage botanical prints, the line incorporates these five bright, sunny hues: Sunray, Spring Grass, Water, Coral Reef, and Calypso Blue. Featured here (from top to bottom) are patterns Pelham House, Classic Ombré, and Mixed Tracks.
  3. Green Hides Leather Studio introduces Venus, a splattering of saturated color options in top grain leather, with a rich, transparent finish and silky hand. It’s processed using low-emission mineral tanning formulas and the hides are re-tanned in aged oak drums using vegetable agents, natural fat liquors, and oils along with the dyes to ensure the leather is properly through-dyed.
  4. Paul Smith has partnered with Maharam on yet another iconic offering that is sure to make history. Houndstooth is a jacquard upholstery that blends the two classic apparel motifs of houndstooth and windowpane plaid. Unique color pairings will once again set this product apart from its ilk.
  5. Momentum’s Naked Nylon V collection brings positivity and resilience to healthcare environments. Patterns Chipper, Nimble, and Brisk (featuring 28
    colorways) were recently added to achieve a total of 15 highly graphic offerings, all constructed of 100 percent Repreve Solution-dyed Recycled Nylon.
  6. Weitzner’s Nature Redefined is a line of coordinating fabrics and wallcoverings that attempts to go beyond conveying just a leaf or flower. The timeless essence of nature was captured through innovative constructions, unexpected materials, and fresh colors.
