Our Director of Design, Marisa Gutmacher, looked to the Indian Ocean archipelago for inspiration when developing the palette, pattern and materials for the new Seychelles collection. The wood bead fringes and borders display a patterning reminiscent of the sea. Imagine its undulating waves and the impressions left behind in the sand.
IN THE STUDIO
“The glazed beads evoke a sleek uniformity, which adds to their versatility. The teardrop and globe fringes will work with many kinds of patterns, fibers and constructions. From dressy to casual, and with a diverse color palette, this collection will accentuate a variety of interiors.”
— Marisa Gutmacher, Director of Design
The palette is broad and ranges from naturally influenced neutrals and deep mineral hues to a series of brights derived from topical vegetation. The designs are woven of cotton, a material indigenous to the island chain.
Above: Shades are trimmed in the Wood Bead Fringe in Sand, pillows in the Wood Bead Fringe in Twilight and the ottoman features a layered application, pairing the Chevron Border with the Wood Teardrop Fringe, both in Twilight.
The collection consists of two wood bead fringes, a 1/2″ gimp and 2″ border.
