I am on a first name basis with my UPS driver, Martin. We usually connect multiple times every week, as assorted design elements arrive at my studio. My point here is that it's not unusual for boxes of fabrics to land on my doorstep, and that's what happened yesterday. A nice box from Kravet — unexpected but always welcome.
This morning I finally had a chance to open that box — and OMG! I was shocked (and might even have drooled just a little bit) at the three simple books it contained — Thom Filicia's new collection for Kravet. Titled "Dawn", "Noon" and "Dusk", the set features fresh patterns with a modern edge and interesting color combinations — deceptively simple and oh-so-easy to love.
You may remember Filicia as the designer on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, where he usually created gold from straw.
When not on TV, he's a high-profile interior designer with celebrity clients and hotel designs in his portfolio. With the introduction of his furniture line for Vanguard earlier this year, we non-celebrities gained access to his style. Add this new Kravet line, and the Thom Filicia juggernaut is one step closer to total home domination!
Check out this video interview of Thom Filicia for Kravet and these snapshots of some of the new patterns. But please, do wipe up the drool!
