NEW YORK - F. Schumacher & Co.'s Schumacher brand is expanding its offering of sheer soft window treatments with a new collection dubbed Radiance.
The library collection of sheers ranges in choices from traditional lace to modern weaves. Made only of natural fibers, constructions include cotton, linen, and wool.
Schumacher said patterns are defined "by exquisite embroidery, fine eyelet, and delicately clipped madras gauze" and the also-natural palette is "soothing and neutral" -- shades of oyster, ivory, parchment, and taupe - "giving the collection a look of quiet luxury."
Three signature options include:
• Dhari Cutwork, an all-cotton offering made in India;
• Charleston Wool Madras, a Scotland-made cotton-and-wool blend woven clipped jacquard madras sheer featuring a graceful Italianate design derived from decorative ironwork;
• Coral Madras, a 100% cotton madras sheer made in Scotland and featuring a delicate coral vine design that is created with clipped threads against a fine net ground.
