Jim Thompson at the Musée Guimet

I heard through the grapevine that Jim Thompson Fabrics hosted a stellar party during Maison&Objet. The event was the launch party for the new Jim Thompson Spring collection as well as the debut of The Spotlight Collection by David Rockwell. The charming vignettes, all of which incorporated fabrics from the new collections, were the work of the very creative Douglas Little. (Don't you think the lions look right at home amongst the Asian artifacts of the Musée Guimet?) While I wish that I could have seen the fantastical menagerie in person, the photos below do a great job of capturing the beautiful fabrics used in very whimsical ways.

The lion and alligator installations incorporated fabrics from The Spotlight Collection by David Rockwell.

The three photos above show fabrics from Jim Thompson's Spring 2012 collection.
