Hartmann&Forbes’ Spring Updates

The Roman Shade Company
SFDC Showplace M-45

Hartmann&Forbes, award-winning maker of natural windowcoverings, wallcoverings and textiles of sustainable natural materials, announces the launch of over fifty new designs into its renowned woven-to-size Liniedge Collection and luxurious ErtheWeave Collection of soft fabrics. The new designs weave intriguing textures of exotic natural materials into patterns of striking beauty.

Each of the new natural textiles are available by-the-yard or handcrafted by artisans at the Oregon Finishing Facility into natural window coverings including roman shade, draperies, Panelscreen and top treatments.


The Liniedge Collection update includes 32 weaves, nearly doubling the company’s renowned line of woven-to-size, natural window coverings. Handwoven to precise window dimensions, each new weave features best-in-class sustainable fibers, the collection’s signature loom-finished edges and is available seamlessly up to an industry leading 180” wide. Highlighting this update are LE1405 Bintang, LE1409 Candra, LE1413 Langit and LE1417 Malam. Inspired by the reflection of the night’s sky on tropical waters, these designs feature metallic fibers interwoven into refined, neutral backdrops bringing a gentle shimmer to a room’s design.

The ErtheWeave Collection update includes nearly 20 designs inspired by current color, texture and pattern trends and broadens the collection’s range and depth. Featuring wool, linen, cotton and hemp textiles, the update is highlighted by EW291 Broadmore, woven from 100% horsehair into a striking houndstooth design.

ArtHaus FLOOR SHOW Collection at Classic Fever

Classic Fever
SFDC Galleria #488

Modern Fever debuted the ArtHaus FLOOR SHOW Collection last Wednesday, and attendees were in for quite a treat.  Five new designs based on the expressive works of ArtHaus Gallery Artist, American singer/actor, Franc D’Ambrosio were on display at Classic Fever while guests sipped bubbly and noshed on tasty sushi.   Franc gave a stunning performance of the Academy Award winning Sicilian ballad Brucia La Terra from The Godfather Part III, where he acted the role of the opera singing Anthony Corleone.  He also brought a tear to guest’s eyes when performing a flawless rendition of Music of the Night from The Phantom of the Opera.  Franc played the Phantom for seven years running in San Francisco.

That’s right…on Saturday, April 6th, we will hold our semi-annual public sample sale!  For one day only, select showrooms will sell items off-the-floor directly to the public at up to 70% off retail.  Hours are 10 AM – 5 PM.  This is the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind fine home furnishings at remarkable savings.

Smaller purchases can be carried out the door while larger purchases may be scheduled for delivery using a shipping service located on-site.  Admission is $10 to non-design professionals.  Definitely worth it because you will also receive a 10% off coupon at the door for one select item in select showrooms.  Are you smiling yet?

Nosh on Grab-and-go breakfast items and lunch on both days.  Gotta keep that energy up.

Preview days to the trade:  April 4th and 5th from 9 AM – 5 PM.  A list of participating showrooms will be listed on in the next few days so you can schedule your route toward doing some major damage!
