"Introducing . . . "


For any of you who know me, you'll already understand my great and abiding love of amazing textiles. Most every design project starts with a space plan - and a pile of fabrics. It's just part of my design process.

And speaking of wonderful fabrics - Suzanne Tucker is launching a new collection of textiles- and its San Francisco debut is this week during "Design San Francisco" - our annual design event here in the city.

I had a chance to preview the collection a few weeks ago - and was in the Shears and Window showroom last Friday when the sample wings were being placed - under the watchful and discerning eye of Suzanne herself. And the fabrics are amazing.

A beautiful palette of colours -
amethyst, mocha, sable, fig, nutmeg, fawn, and buttercream.

Here's a quick look at some of my immediate favourites:

Kiku - Aubergine
100% Linen
"Reinterpreted from a 19th century Japanese futon cover, Kiku
is an intricate pattern of staggered chrysanthemum and
lotus roundels and interlocking arabesques on a
heavy linen ground."

"As a reinterpretation of an early 20th century document, Fleur de Plume
is a woven multi-textured brocade displaying a majestic fantasy
of peacock feathers and robust leaves amidst
an intertwining floral motif."

Aurora - Olive
28% Silk, 72% Cotton
"Reinterpreted from an 18th century cut silk velvet, Aurora
is a boldly scaled woven silk and cotton damask displaying an
enchanting pattern of climbing vines, quince and
seed pods all joined by meandering lace ribbons."

Dolce - Amethyst
15% Alpaca, 85% Cotton

Okay - this might be my true favourite. It feels like a cashmere velvet. Yummy. Really yummy.

Suzanne will be speaking at the Shears & Window
showroom in San Francisco this Thursday afternoon (February 4th) -

"Suzanne Tucker launches her first fabric collection, a panoply
of silks, jacquards, cottons, and linens prints, cashmere and
cotton velvets, a matelasses. Please join Suzanne as she
illustrates how she has carefully reinterpreted classic
designs from 18th and 19th century documentary textiles
to give them a contemporary look and make
them easy to use in today's interiors"

If you're in the area - please stop by and have a look.
