fabric friday — blogfest2011 — barbara barry

Another won­der­ful expe­ri­ence at Blogfest2011 was the oppor­tu­nity to lis­ten to inter­na­tion­ally acclaimed inte­rior designer Bar­bara Barry dis­cuss her new col­lec­tion Indo­chine for Kravet. Barbara's slides revealed the many inspi­ra­tions she found dur­ing her trav­els in Asia, par­tic­u­larly in Japan. If you have seen any of her pre­vi­ous fab­ric col­lec­tions, you know her fab­rics are always gra­cious, under­stated and calm. Her per­son­al­ity matches com­pletely! The Asian influ­ence is clearly vis­i­ble; the palette remains soft and ele­gant. In addi­tion to fab­rics, the col­lec­tion includes trim, hard­ware, rugs and believe it or not, her own cus­tom tea blend named Cit­rine. Bar­bara in the Kravet show­room, show­ing the fabrics:

What do you think? I think sub­tle and beau­ti­ful, like the lady her­self. Thanks Kravet for the chance to meet this amaz­ing talent.
