Last May, Knoll Luxe, a luxury textile division of the highly acclaimed furniture company Knoll Inc., invited Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the creative duo behind Rodarte, to design a line of textiles…the collection’s eight fabrics, three for drapery and five for upholstery, are named after the sisters favorite poets…Byron, pictured above and below, has a wonderful earthy texture…maybe it’s referencing the luscious curves and grooves of sand at low tide or could it be the natural waves found on the trunk of a majestic tree…like with their fashion collections, the textiles are a unique mix of rough and delicate, masculine and feminine, primitive and futuristic…simply beautiful!
wishing you a happy friday!!!!!
“Fabrics always take on a life of their own for us. We’re constantly reworking our fabrics and are very open to how things are created. When Dorothy Cosonas (Knoll Textile’s creative director) asked us to collaborate, we were really excited to be able to focus so intensely on the design of the textiles themselves. We didn’t feel one constraint during the design process and we thought a lot about how the different textiles could be combined in an interior in the same way we combine different fabrics and treatments in one dress.” ~ Kate and Laura Mulleavy from an interview with T Magazine
