Describe your collection in three words.
Maximizing the Mix!

What are your picks for the most iconic patterns from the collection?
Anne: “Soldo (DE42674). We are known for our use of florals in our interiors as well as textiles. When we had the concept to add a snake to a floral this pattern became my favorite in the collection with this unique twist.”

Suysel: “Angelina (DE42673) is my top pick! I have always loved scallop patterns, so when we visited the Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon I was immediately drawn to the whimsical shape of the window archways. I knew we had to translate this iconic motif to a fabric in our collection.”

How about your favorite color ways?
Anne: “Red! We were stopped in our tracks when we saw a stunning red door at a church in Lisbon. This bright red, which we came to call Encarnado (it’s the word for red in Portuguese), has such passion and so much personality.”  

Suysel: “Emerald green. This jewel tone feels like the perfect evolution from the greens in our first collection. It’s vibrant and sassy!”

What were some highlights while designing this collection?
Being that this was our second collection, we had a better understanding for the process and the timeline. Our favorite part for both collections was collaborating with the Duralee Design Studio on color ways because our fabrics are so multi-colored. For each pattern we created 20 or 30 different color combination options. Then in the end, we selected the top three to five that make the collection. But creating from a rainbow of options was such a highlight for us.

How do you see your fabrics being used?
We always love seeing fabric paper-backed and applied to walls. We also love unique vintage furniture and are excited to see how our collection will be used to transform pieces and give designs new life!

What's catching your eye right now in design?
We have been seeing a resurgence of bold patterns—in fashion, especially. We are currently loving the collections from Rhode Resort. It would be a dream to see one of our bold patterns translated to fashion!

Who are your style muses (past and present)?
Past: Madeleine Castaing
Present: Sasha Bikoff (she rocked the Kips Bay Showhouse 2018 like ‘Woah!’)

Any Instagram obsessions right now?
Quintessence is always one of our favorite accounts, most especially for her summer travels in Nantucket. It’s absolutely dreamy!
