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

The Michael-Cleary showroom has recently added Maxwell fabrics to their ever growing list of fabric vendors at the Washington Design Center showroom location. As part of their expansion project in the new #WDCDesign Center, the Michael-Cleary showroom will expand their fabric section and the overall showroom floor space. They are the first showroom to undertake a remodel project since the opening of the new #WDCDesign Center.

As an introduction to their newest fabric vendor, they have provided some beautiful and dramatic before and after pictures from furniture pieces refinished with Maxwell Fabrics patterns.

Before & After -- This HUGE (it's nearly 4' x 4'!) mid-century lounge chair, designed by Adrian Pearsall, came from Maxwell Fabrics Annex inventory. Their clients, a wonderful couple with incredible taste, chose two textiles from Maxwell Fabrics for the redo -- Vibrant in Dragonfly and Supple in Spruce. Reupholstery minus the dated tufting has turned this gorgeous chair into the beauty it was always meant to be!
