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‚Äôs second theme reveals a graphic and architectural emphasis – a 1950s look reflecting the ‚Äėconstructive thinking‚Äô of designs by the celebrated Jean Prouv√©. 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.

The Best Around

Dekayu Home
SFDC Showplace #325

Did you know that  Dekayu Home was selected for a third year in a row as having one of the best of High Point Market Products for Spring 2013?!  Check out the rock star below in all of its glory.

Dekayu was founded in 2004, born out of owner Thesia Bowo‚Äôs own needs and observations. Thesia found that much of the modern furniture on the market was processed and produced by means that aggravated her chemical sensitivities and affronted her core design beliefs.¬† Low quality softwoods and composites are often heavily chemically treated and contribute to a ‚Äúdisposable‚ÄĚ culture, with little regard for the end result.

The solution to these problems was found in her rich Indonesian heritage and her love of Mid-Century Modern greats; the answer was to create clean classic pieces out of environmentally sound materials.  Enter, Dekayu!

Brentano’s Spring 2012 Collection


Donghia, Inc.
SFDC Galleria #144 

When the Brentano sales team said clients were seeking a sophisticated and graphic outdoor upholstery, the Design Studio decided to rework their successful pattern, Dahlia. They knew they would need to alter the weave to create a textile that could stand up to the elements, and as a color leader, they are always aware of the necessity of offering both classic hues and fresh shades. 

In response to these requests, Brentano created Zinnia, an outdoor upholstery that maintains the Japanese stencil-inspired, botanical pattern of Dahlia but re-imagines the weave for outdoor requirements and re-colors it to create fresh options perfect for outdoor applications. Woven from 100% high energy-dyed polyester, Zinnia meets contract performance standards at 30,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek).  It also offers strong lightfastness and has both Teflon and antibacterial finishes.  Available in 9 colors ranging from classic neutrals, like Dreamland and Aztec, to the established blue of Art Deco, to the bold and fun Sunbow and Peppermint Stick.
