LAKE HOUSE TRANSFORMATION

For a long-treasured family lake house in desperate need of a refresh, two sisters turned to Schumacher to zhuzh-up their mid-century modern space without dismantling its perfectly imperfect charms. Stylish and happy indoor/outdoor fabrics were just the things to channel the cabin’s surprisingly chic legacy—and they’re tough enough to handle anything that comes their way.

Looking for effortless elegance and easy living? Look no further than Threads’ newest introduction, Moro Collection. Celebrating the relationship between the natural world and architectural design, Moro combines structural prints alongside beautiful textured vinyl wallpaper.

Moro takes its cue from nature’s gentler colors. At its heart are the soft blues and teals of sea and sky moving to deepest midnight indigo. Organic neutral shades of charcoal and linen complete this beautifully focused color palette.

This collection combines restful painterly prints together with more structural graphic forms. Some of the patterns are sourced from our expansive archive, adding a historic richness to this contemporary offering.

Collecting and curating is a way of life for Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke, the design duo behind esteemed firm Madcap Cottage.

Exotic toiles, splashy florals, stunning geometrics and lyrical embroideries mingle to create a transporting, riotous mix of color that lends itself to numerous applications.

DAY & NIGHT

Imagination and intrigue are the heart of the beloved Moon Blossom print by Beacon Hill. This timeless textile takes us deep into the forest where a moonlit kingdom of lush flora and fauna enchants the senses and deepens our connection to nature. Inspired by a late 19th-century French document, Moon Blossom gives rooms an unexpected dose of wonder, romance and fantasy.

Available in two colorways

IKAT FABRIC

Definition of ikat

  1. :  a fabric in which the yarns have been tie-dyed before weaving

Lending itself towards Bohemian or global vibes, the ancient Ikat pattern is trendy and everywhere these days.  Ikat is a weaving style common to many cultures around the world, and is one of the oldest forms of textile decoration.

CELEBRATE SUMMER: OUTDOOR FABRIC GUIDE

Ready for summer but realize your patio furniture isn’t quite up to par and the fabrics have seen better days due to year round weather abuse?  When replacing your upholstery or cushions outdoors here is a guideline to choosing the right textiles to withstand the elements:

robertallendeckchairstripe

SOLUTION-DYED 100% ACRYLIC  

These begin with fibers that are initially colorless.  They are woven into yarns and the yarns are then dyed and woven into fabric.  Solution-dyed Acrylic is commonly used for umbrellas and awnings because it holds up extremely well under the sun and won’t fade easily.  It also efficiently repels water for an added bonus!

 ACRYLIC-COATED 100% POLYESTER

Comparable to solution-dyed acrylic in appearance, durability, and use, this fabric is a common choice for boat and car protectors.  After the fabric is woven it is dipped into an acrylic coating making it water-resistant.  Both acrylic and polyester fibers dry quickly and are UV resistant.

ACRYLIC-COATED POLYESTER/COTTON BLENDS

Blending man-made and natural fiber creates a fabric that is both durable and aesthetically pleasing, as it is offered in a wide variety of colors and patterns.

VINYL-COATED COTTON AND VINYL-LAMINATED POLYESTER

This waterproof and fire-resistant material is available in limited color choices and fabric styles.  Having a slick, glossy appearance it is regularly used for larger canopies and commercial awnings.

VINYL COATED SYNTHETIC FIBER MESH

Commonly referred to as ‘sling able’ fabric, this is the only choice for sling type outdoor chair fabric replacement.  Because the design of the sling chair is such that it requires the fabric portion support the weight of the occupant, rather than the frame, it is imperative that the fabric be strong and not stretch.  Most often these fabrics are made of vinyl coated polyester or acrylic yarns, or other synthetics such as olefin and PVC.  Besides their superior strength, they are durable, colorfast, easily cleaned, have a high UV rating, and do not promote mildew growth.

 

After you determine how much sun exposure your furniture will receive you will have a better idea of how durable your fabric selection needs to be.  Swatches are useful to see how the new fabric will blend with your existing décor, what they look like under natural light, and how they will contrast with your landscape.

Check out new fringes and trims that are available for outdoor use…a little pizazz on a pillow can really add some POW to your design.  Be sure to follow the guidelines for care and cleaning of your fabrics and they will last for several seasons of outdoor fun!

Floating World Collection

Floating World was sparked by a trip to Paris's Pinacothèque museum, which hosted an exhibition comparing the works of Vincent van Gogh with those of the 19th-century Japanese artist, Hiroshige. The post-impressionist Dutch painter was clearly influenced by Hiroshige, whose highly stylistic yet serene prints often pictured a hazy Mount Fuji in the distance. The exhibit sparked an exploration of Japonisme and Chinoiserie, two European decorative genres informed by the art of Japan and China. Floating World is a reflection of these two artistic styles, but made modern through scale and color. Go behind the scenes to see how the Robert Allen team of photographers and stylists bring this silk story to life.
