Waverly is coming up roses

New York — Focusing on what appears to be the world's favorite flower, Waverly is launching an extensive decorative fabrics collection — American Rose Garden.
The 10 print and eight woven pattern collection looks back to a romantic, nostalgic era but moves forward using more cotton warp sateen and less cotton duck as print base cloths, said Pamela Maffei-Toolan, design director, Waverly Lifestyle.
Four statement prints are the centerpieces for the collection, inspired by documents and coordinates include a loose lattice, a wrought iron scroll, a rose toile and a lattice/ribbon combination.
Eight wovens in the collection include a wavy stripe, a two-ply cotton jacquard and a matte grosgrain ribbon design — all elaborate and opulent themes using the rose as the motif.
