I partnered with Valley Forge to create a palette of velvets I've longed for but could never find in the market (let alone the hospitality market).”
He added, “Tangy Orange, the perfect Mushroom, marshmallow White, the Green that will make you feel like you've never seen green before, inky inky inky Mediterranean navy -- these are just a few of the 17 colors that form the foundation of the Volumes of Velvet collection. Using the solid palette as a foundation, we added all kinds of groovy sculpted patterns, unexpected textures and nifty stripes”
