Commercial + Residential
When art and commerce collide, everybody wins. And so, manufacturers are masquerading as curators, proffering gallery-worthy materials for aesthetically inclined designers and their art-attuned clientele. Fabrics, wallcoverings and carpets morph into canvases, with painterly approaches especially prevalent. But the power of the statement is variety, from collage and pen-and-ink effects to Cubist geometry and Pollock splatter. No shrinking violets here, the audacious patterns are destined to create highly personal statements in homes, and guest-wowing settings in hotels and offices.
