INTRODUCING EILEEN KATHRYN BOYD EXCLUSIVELY FOR DURALEE - Eileen Kathryn Boyd’s eclectic style and bold use of color have led her to become one of the industry’s most revolutionary designers.  Drawing inspiration from fashion runways and bold works of art, Eileen’s interiors are laced with a youthful interpretation of traditional styling for a confident, unexpected design aesthetic.  Embodying the Duralee philosophy of fresh, fun, chic design, Duralee is pleased to translate Eileen’s signature style into her first fabric collection.

Bright and innovative, the five-color books of the Eileen Kathryn Boyd Collection Exclusively for Duralee - AMETHYST/LAVENDER, FUCHSIA/CITRON, SMOKE/SAND, NAVY/SKY and AQUAMARINE/PERIDOT - are designed much like Eileen’s interiors: fearless, unique and expressive.  An artist in her own right, Boyd’s collection is a marriage of scale, function and beauty, with her signature intricate, yet bold use of color threaded throughout.

Of her collection, Eileen states, “while developing fabric and color schemes for client projects over the years, I came to recognize that the fabric companies had unique color languages.  Typically, you would find that special cast of neutrals or rich jeweled chromas in the European fabric houses.  These special colors often came with higher price points.  My objective was to make joyously vivid textiles accessible to everyone.”

DURALEE®, dedicated to providing the building blocks to design, is headquartered in Bay Shore, New York with showrooms nationwide and throughout the world.
