Lenor Romano Home debuts
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, January 29, 2009
Romano is a New York-based designer of men’s luxury sweaters who recently launched a line at Saks Fifth Avenue. She also produces a secondary label that is younger and more contemporary, lenie R.
Her home collection includes mohair, alpaca and knit cashmere throws and pillows, with an emphasis at this week’s show on the cashmere.
The cashmere throws feature a fur-finish Romano developed with a Japanese fabric mill. The process creates a lofty, fox-fur effect without compromising the integrity of the fiber, as can happen in brushing. The throws also feature a thick “rasta” self fringe. They are available in storm blue, mesclun, thistle, nutmeg, dragonfly (a teal), eggplant, black, charcoal, heather brown and ivory.
Lenor Roman Home also showed double-faced versions of throws and pillows in combinations of teal/soft brown, ivory/oatmeal, thistle/eggplant, charcoal/black and blue/gray, among others.
