Barbara Barry's Chalet

CHALET, Barbara Barry’s new collection of fabric, trimmings, drapery hardware and wallpaper for Kravet, is based on her love of the Austrian Alps, where rustic meets refinement. Rendered in the soft colors of Edelweiss, alpine streams and winter grays, CHALET offers chic simplicity to layered formality. The collection ranges from perfect plains and pretty patterns, to exquisite embroidered and elegant trims. Dress up your cabin-inspired interior in wool and cashmere, felt and fur, or keep it spare and modern with touches of trim and antler drapery hardware accents.

Design Trends: Muted Tones

"Every year I head to Austria to take in the beauty of the mountains. The green Alps and blue skies are a spectacular backdrop for a simple but refined lifestyle. An all day hike is rewarded by the return to soft pine floors, fine linens and a glass of crisp Austrian Riesling. This magical lifestyle and beautiful surroundings is what inspired this new collection called Chalet. " - Barbara Barry

Design Trends: Muted Tones

The exquisite trims recall the provincial motifs of wooden balconies and the details of traditional clothing.

Color of the Month SKY

Color of the Month

Scalamandre Introduces SKY, May Color of the Month

Color is rooted in the daily life of interior designers and is used to effect profound statements in expression of their art. Blue is historically the most prized color. Blue pigments were so rare that they were valued more than any other.

Color of the month sky

Blue is often associated with depth and stability and is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect and promotes creative problem solving.

Color of the month sky

Scalamandre has created a collection of products inspired by the color SKY you can view on Pinterest or on their website.  Stop by the Scalamandre showroom in the Washington Design Center in Suite 210 and the friendly showroom staff will be happy to assist you with more SKY product offerings from Scalamandre.

Spring Lifestyle Report

Spring Lifestyle Report

Century Furniture Spring Lifestyle

This spring Century explores the ideas of confidence, continuity, and collected wisdom. From an urban bohemian lifestyle infused with earthy and saturated colors to a story of the modern curated home, the presentations depict less of the “what we put in our homes” and more of the “how we live and put it together.” The rooms feel effortless but are layered with subtle nuance and details and showcase the strength of Century’s finish and fabric offering. Mixing Thomas O’Brien pieces with new Bob Timber-lake pieces and other new items from the Maison ‘47 Collection, Century artfully shows us how to create collected rooms that feel lived in rather than decorated.

Spring Lifestyle Report

A Curated Home 

The Curated Home is all about this concept of home as a gallery, an ever changing space where furniture moves around as needed instead of being set in one place to live in perpetuity. Rooms should evolve as we collect and curate our lives through time. The colors here are inspired by mineral hues. A punch of citrine awakens the grays and spa blues in one room, while in another gallery Rose Quartz acts as the neutral mixing with taupe and beige. #CenturyCurated #Citrine #Rosequartz #Madebyhand

Spring Lifestyle Report

Organic Modern

Organic modern is the juxtaposition of rus-tic more casual settings with modern things. A contemporary sofa against a planked wall. We were inspired by William Wurster, an early American architect, and his work. Ivory, taupes and powdery and slatey blues mix on modern upholstery. #CenturyOrganicModern #artofmixing #rootedinhistory #Madebyhand

Spring Lifestyle Report

Resort

Not meant to conjure a physical place, Century’s Resort Lifestyle is more about a state of mind. Nostalgic prints made youthful and modern with coloration and scale mix with a range of furniture styles showcased in Century’s white lacquer and a new finish, Eden, to create playful rooms. This lifestyle is all about not taking things too seriously, kicking up your feet and living the good life, wher-ever that might be. #CenturyResort #Eden #RobertAllen #MadcapCottage #Madebyhand
