Leaving 1958 behind and moving forward to 2015...
I want to call your attention to two new fabric collections, both of which were designed by friends. The first is by Steve McKenzie, who, along with wife Jill, is proprietor of the Atlanta home furnishings shop, Steve McKenzie's. But retailer is just one of his many titles. Steve is also a talented artist, interior designer, and now, fabric designer. What I like about Steve's fabrics is that their brushstroke designs capture Steve's artistic skills. Flowers (see above), stripes, and swirls lend a painterly touch to these versatile fabrics. Steve's fabric collection is available through his shop as well as numerous designer showrooms.
The other collection I want to mention is that of San Francisco designer and blogger, Scot Meacham Wood. Perhaps it's no surprise that the man whose blog nom de plume is "Tartan Scot" would make his textile debut with a line of Scottish tartans. Part of Scot Meacham Wood Home, the fabric collection also includes tweeds, tattersalls, and trims. With cold weather just weeks away, Scot's woolen fabrics are just the thing to warm your surroundings. The collection is available to purchase from the Scot Meacham Wood Home website.
