I was very lucky to have a lot of time to spend wandering around John Rosselli’s 18th floor showroom at the D&D Building. They were kind enough to give me free rein, and I poked into every corner and looked at nearly every fabric sample they had.
I love textures, so seeing this great looking mock croc wallpaper, similar to papers I’ve brought back from the UK, was lots of fun. And here’s the same paper in context.There were well thought out vignettes on every table, highlighting some of the beautiful pieces of blue and white china for which Rosselli is justly famous.
Then it was on to the fabrics. Sister Parish’s line is so contemporary in both pattern and colour. In fact, Rita Konig referenced Parish’s Chou Chou in an article she did for the Wall Street Journal’s Off Duty section this past weekend.
Another print that Konig referenced was one by Carolina Irving of dandelions. Funny that it was one I also picked!
I loved this woven by Robert Kime, but at more than $1000/yard, it’s a bit out of my budget!
