Friday Find :: Schumacher 125th Anniversary

Schumacher turns 125! In celebration, the legendary American textile company is pulling from its archives some of its most iconic patterns and reinterpreting them for today. Schumacher’s 125th Anniversary collection consists of a wide variety of patterns that span different influences, periods, and styles. It’s fabulous and I can’t pick a favorite, but have narrowed a few to share for this week’s Friday Find:

citrus garden // schumacher fabric #citrus #fabric

Citrus Garden – Based on an archival botanical pattern that acclaimed midcentury architect Josef Frank designed for the house in 1947

Flame Stitch // Schumacher Fabrics #blue

Valkyrie Flame Stitch – First introduced in 1972, this classic motif traces its roots to 15th century central Europe

Shengyou Toile in indigo // Schumacher 125 Anniversary Fabrics #chinoiserie

Shengyou Toile – Hand drawn toile based on an 18th-century Oberkampf document by Jean-Baptiste Pillement, a court painter to Marie Antoinette

Indian Arbre Fabric // Schumacher 125th Anniversary Collection #textiles #blue

Indian Arbre – Featuring the timeless tree of life pattern, this hand-painted fabric is inspired by traditional Indian palampore that was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century

Congratulations Schumacher and here’s to 125 more fabulous years!

happy decorating,

cristin

How cute this mid-century modern inspired marble coffee table with chic home decor accessories? The metallic banded vase is my fave! It’s all part of West Elm’s recently released collection for fall 2014. Scouring the globe from Peru to India, Haiti to the Philippines, this collection delivers authentic artisanal pieces to make your house a home. The most exciting part?

As the world’s oldest cabinetry maker founded in 1892, Poggenpohl is revered globally for its high-end European kitchen design. Poggenpohl’s minimalist lines and modern sensibility set them apart from the many traditional cabinet makers in the United States. The contemporary and dare I say transitional design is being embraced more and more by a new generation of homeowners. By delivering premium quality and a wide selection of product finishes, Poggenpohl offers 70 finishes, ranging from exotic woods to high-gloss lacquers, affordable European laminates, glass, aluminum and classic raised panel doors, allowing complete customization for each homeowner’s individual needs and tastes.

Poggenpohl’s beautiful form is equally matched by it’s high-function and innovation. I tested out these beautifully precise cabinets and drawers while at KBIS with #BlogTourVegas. They are indeed impressive on the inside and out. Poggenpohl’s new drawers and pull-outs are crafted from the finest materials and the pull-outs come with indirect LED lighting that is automatically activated when the pull-out is opened. Functional accessories, such as spice shakers and porcelain or aluminum jars allow for seamless organization and complement the light-maple or walnut wood inserts. Here are some of the impressive accessories Poggenpohl offers… get ready to swoon.

Design Crush :: Christine Dovey’s Home

Did you see Christine Dovey’s home featured last week on Style Me Pretty? Hello gorgeous. Christine, a stylist, mother of three and the voice behind the Bijou & Boheme, collaborated with interior designer, Meredith Heron (who I had the pleasure of hanging out with while in Vegas for BlogTour -love her!!!) on the project. The result is simply stunning. With a balanced mix of various period styles from mid-century modern to Art Deco, the home is all glam and all Christine.

You’ll see from some of my favorite images that Christine has embraced several current decor trends including the use of brass (hardware, lighting and furnishings), wallpaper (foyer, girl’s bedroom) and geometric patterns (textiles, rugs throughout). Love it!
