Dana Gibson for Stroheim

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.

Dana Gibson for Stroheim

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.

Powell & Bonnell


J Lambeth is pleased to announce a partnership with Powell & Bonnell. They identified with their design style and philosophy immediately and we think you will too.

With a philosophy to provide tailored lifestyle-centric solutions of exceptional quality, the P&B team take pride in the fact that they are not confined to a signature design style. This enables their multi-talented design team to create solutions which meet the lifestyle and desires of the client, while respecting cues given by the established "architecture" of the environment. 


International and domestic design projects are orchestrated from their Toronto atelier. Finished projects are appropriately understated and suitably luxurious. 


The Powell & Bonnell philosophy is unmistakable in an equally refined and understated offering of furnishings, lighting, mirrors and textiles. Their bespoke collection is made in North American and is arriving on the floor at J Lambeth for you to preview soon!

Purpose, Passion and Creativity

Purpose, Passion and Creativity

Design Creativity At J Lambeth

PURPOSE, PASSION AND CREATIVITY—all are paramount if your dream is to make an authentic impact in the world through any artistic endeavor.

Like Van Gogh, Hartmann & Forbes has discovered and realized their unique point of view. Their purpose is to help the designer of luxury interior spaces create sanctuary through natural design.

[gallery link="file" ids="4095,4098,4096"]

This authentic and unique perspective is rooted in Their love of nature and all of its many inspirations. Connecting with the natural world actuates the process of reunification, rebalance and renewal.

This year, Hartmann & Forbes tore down the walls that kept them from fulfilling their purpose. Their focus was on the ideas that truly move them—concepts that propel their artistic expressions. 

Crosshatch Crosshatch

They refined their collections to reflect this vision. This Spring, you will find an eclectic mixture of coordinated products, adding new colorways, textures and designs to the natural offering. The Hartmann & Forbes team has also spent months conceiving our print Reference Guide Kit for 2016 in an effort to showcase our broadening range of natural products.

[gallery link="file" ids="4094,4099"]

"We hope that by creating a body of work that we are proud of, it can live on in spaces that are relaxed and restful; lived in and enjoyed.” Michael Jones, Founder

If you would like to receive the 2016 Reference Guide Kit, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we’ll get one to you!

Charlotte Moss Collection

Charlotte Moss has created two incredible collections for Fabricut. The second collection debuted only last year in 2015 and is a must see! If you haven't stopped by the J Lambeth showroom in the #WDCDesign Center, make some time and drop in to speak with the wonderful sales associates and have them walk you through the Charlotte Moss collection. 

Charlotte’s inspiration for her collection is drawn from antiques, vintage documents, architectural themes and, of course, her garden. Direction and inspiration for the collection was found primarily within her immense anthology of textile documents, items acquired during her travels and images she's captured behind her camera.

Only a few of the images are displayed here, but you can see the entire collection on the Fabricut website by clicking here.Charlotte-Moss-Trims-3
