'Little touches' play big part at Thomasville
April 28, 2003,
Thomasville put the push on designs with strong color stories, extra detailing and interesting fabrics at the spring New York Home Textiles Market.
Portico, for example, featured a crushed poly fabric with rayon/chenille flowers and gold tracery in a palette of copper, topaz and gold.
Inspiration translated a classic botanical in a palette of grasshopper green print on a moire-like textured ground. The top of bed reverses to a maize/green/eggplant stripe. Embroidered butterflies embellished dec pillows and shams, with more stripes employed on toss pillows. The coordinating window valance featured a customized tooling.
Accents for Raja included woven chenille and metallic top of bed in tangerine, grape and kiwi, tied in silks and an iridescent foulard on the sham.
Villency featured a classic bouquet on a buttercup ground with periwinkle accents. The top of bed tied to damask print sheet, with accents in a homespun plaid shirting motif.
