New Larsen collection @ Cowtan & Tout

Cowtan & Tout
SFDC Showplace #170

Larsen’s 2013 Collection focuses on two distinctive themes: the first inspired by the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age in the 1930s, and tributes to screen legends such as Greta Garbo, depicted in beautiful evening gowns. A sophisticated haute couture collection, featuring glamorous chic metallic effects and shimmering satin silks in subtle mineral shades.

Larsen’s second theme reveals a graphic and architectural emphasis – a 1950s look reflecting the ‘constructive thinking’ of designs by the celebrated Jean Prouvé. A collection capturing the excitement of the 1950s cultural period: freedom of spirit, a search for novel techniques and a refined aesthetic without artifice. Cubist influence, a sculptural form in patterns, an abstract feel complemented by modern shapes, dynamic lines of movement and vibrant color contrasts define the latest collection.

The unique color palette is the key to the identity of the whole collection, with warm and spicy tones affording fascinating color combinations. Larsen has created new plains with a relaxed and luxurious feel – the essence of texture – and a new weave density derived from interlacing surface yarns.

Kelly Wearstler Debuts Wallcoverings and Trimmings Collection with Groundworks

Lee Jofa
SFDC Galleria, #490

Famed interior designer and tastemaker Kelly Wearstler has partnered with Groundworks to launch her first collection of wallcoverings and her second collection of trimmings. Celebrated for her lavishly chic design aesthetic and unexpected use of color and texture, these new collections build upon Wearstler’s successful relationship with Groundworks, a brand distributed by industry leader Lee Jofa, and converse beautifully with her elegant fabrics and existing trimmings.

With a meticulous attention to detail and a vintage, timeless quality, the seven-pattern wallpaper collection and eight-pattern trimmings collection boast dramatic designs, which are rendered using artful, hand-printed techniques in sophisticated color pairings and graphic patterns. Wearstler calls upon different environmental elements, both natural and urban – including street art, brushstrokes, gradient coloring, water and wood – which have been interpreted in a modern and imaginative way.

The wallpaper collection features rich gold, silver and copper mixed-metallic finishes, a Wearstler signature. For the trimmings collection, Wearstler continues to build on her signature color combinations, seen throughout her interior design and fashion projects, bold black & white, periwinkle blue, pistachio green, smokey aubergine and coral, citrine yellow, warm charcoal grey and ivory.
