Fabric Inspiration Unveiled at ShowTime 2017

Our creative directors log some serious miles trotting over the globe in search of the newest trends that make fabrics come to life in our hands.  They study runway fashions; immerse themselves in pop-culture at home and abroad; and, they pay careful attention to street-styles to learn what they can about the current vibes and tastes.  Then, they take what they’ve learned and infuse it into fabric design. 

Fabrics should be a visceral part of daily life, invoking comfort, desire, warmth, family, friends and memories of a life well-lived.  We took the new LiveSmart fabric line to the 2017 Showtime Market in High Point and our customer base came away excited about the new fabric collections.

Mimosa Inspired Fabrics

A warm golden yellow embodies optimism and confidence.  Tapping into the expressive and creative side, this warm color is the color of new ideas and shared intellect.

Texture Inspired Fabrics

Understated, uncluttered and mindful simplicity gives us a moment to breathe and a place of rest in a world competing for our attention.  These simple warm, weathered neutrals gather in layers of varying texture and pattern lets us disconnect and enjoy the now.

Fabric is woven into all the parts of our day.  Comfort, simplicity, warmth and tradition are a natural fit in modern homes where people like to live in color.
