How would you describe the aesthetic of the Lonni Paul for Duralee collection? The design philosophy for this collection is fashion for the home and livable luxury. The patterns are inspired by couture fashion and a custom atelier vibe. The performance quality of the fabrics cater to the livable functionality of the collection while maintaining the fashionable aesthetic.


What was the best part about designing with performance fabric? I was surprised that I was able to get the hand and feel of the fabrics to such a luxurious level. With performance fabrics you are not limited to only certain applications for the fabrics. These fabrics could be used in the messiest of family rooms and kitchens but also in luxurious living and dining rooms.


What inspired the color palette for the Lonni Paul for Duralee collection? The palette of this collection is both current and classic. The elegance of the soft colors is easy to live in and will stand the test of time. I love using these hues in many of my projects. They are appealing to both men and women and the subtle tonal nuances make the fabrics feel luxurious and timeless.

Tell us about your approach to the patterns. I was inspired by couture fashion and I wanted to make sure the little details and nuances in the designs would be noticed and appreciated. These patterns are not just your typical check, or plaid, or stripe or texture. They each offer a point of view and something eye catching.

How do you see designers using your fabrics? I see designers using these fabrics on literally every piece in the home! Sofas, chairs, pillows, benches, drapery… everywhere! Why not? When you don’t have to worry about the fabric getting ruined you don’t have limit yourself!
