Design Team Favorites: Fabrics and Wallcoverings

Designers deal with fabrics and wallcoverings daily.  It is their discerning eye that can look at two fabric samples, which to others might seem identical, and determine which would look best on a piece a furniture.   Presented with new samples daily, most of the designers have pinned up the fabrics they love or that inspire them around their desks. This month, we asked everyone  to share their current favorites. With so much love for fabrics and wallcoverings, you might just call us a bunch of …

Design Team Favorites: Emerald

Emerald Header

Every December, Pantone identifies a shade it believes will be “the breakthrough color of the following year” after sifting through trends from around the world.

“Emerald is the color of balance and harmony, enhancing one’s sense of well-being and inspiring insight and clarity,” Pantone said.

A contrast to last year’s invigorating tangerine tango, emerald (Pantone 17-5641) is a lush hue that, “is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eyes sees more green than any other color in the spectrum, “said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

In honor of the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year, our staff shared their emerald favorites!

J Banks Inspiration

Joni recalls having to have the fabric specially milled because emerald fabric was simply unavailable at all of the factories. People were just not producing products in this hue. What a difference a few years can make.

We are excited to celebrate emerald in 2013!

Happy New Year!
