For her latest upholstery textiles collection – Wovens VIII – renowned designer Kelly Wearstler turned to a variety of artisanal paintings for inspiration. The resultant textiles collection – Wearstler’s eighth – features nine original patterns that include small-scale motifs, robust weaves and textures and a harmonious palette of earthen hues. Colours range from faded terracotta and warm amber to soft Aegean blues and grounding neutrals. Five highlights include:
Baja, an understated yet captivating hand-drawn geometric. The inviting and warm mid-weight textile is made from a luxurious linen blend and offered in four subtle and soothing colourways: Fossil, Shadow, Coin and Claret.
A dreamy two-tone linen jacquard, Dadami evokes a mesmerizing quality through its tranquil linear waves and stretch across its surface. Woven from premium heirloom-quality linen, the fabric’s small-scale painterly lines were inspired by graphic artwork. Offered in six colourways: Chalk, Honey, Clay, Pool, Marlin and Soot.
With Mado, a small-scale grid is realized through the blending of three separate yarn colours. A knubby surface lends a measure of textural dimension to the fabric, which is offered in four colourways: Ash, Spice, Russet and Indigo.
A contemporary take on dimensional artwork, Hana features a provocative interplay of understated diagonal patterns and painterly flecks of colour. A subtle sheen adds to its elegance, and it’s offered in six colourways: Almond, Glint, Rosy, Seaglass, Lake and Graphite.
At once sophisticated and laidback, Cabochon is defined by the woven slub detailing that dances across its richly textured surface, resulting in a ribbing effect that draws the eye. The cotton-blend is available in five colourways: Rust, Calypso, Slipper, Brandy and Coconut.
