Dana Gibson for Stroheim

Dana's collection for Stroheim includes a sophisticated line of fabrics and wallcoverings that embodies the essence of her joyous design aesthetic. It reflects her keen interest in centuries old traditions, seamlessly woven with what is modern and today.

Ancient ikats, Chinese vases, painterly florals, birds, animal prints, curvaceous ogees and intricate fretwork are rendered in bold strokes and infused with a distinctly American sensibility. Bold colors are daringly mixed with traditional design that has stood the test of time.
