If my newly launched fabric collection reminds you of patterns and techniques you’ve seen in Peru or Mexico, or an extraordinary museum exhibit, that’s no accident. For my first collection for Kravet – that was 3 years in the making! – we mined Kravet’s own archives (that are truly remarkable) as well as art, architecture, and history to create a collection that feels unexpected. Whenever I’m traveling I am constantly taking pictures of architectural details, like a patterned floor tile or an intricate wrought iron door, and then I come back and find ways to incorporate them into my designs. This collection is all of these things brought together and is aptly named, Well Traveled.
The collection took inspiration from Mexican textiles, heavy embroidery and boucles, as well as the geometry of the Bauhaus movement and the motifs of the Viennese secessionist period. The goal is to invite creativity and let people make their own choices, and tell their own stories, in their homes.
