Take an Inspiration Fabric Walk!
During West Week in Los Angeles last week, I went to an event in the beautiful "back of the shop" gardens of Nate Turner's shop and Harbinger-Lucas Studios. It was, as is always the case of the events thrown in their secret garden... fun, festive with a twist of the magical....but mostly it was fabric, fabric, fabric everywhere. If you haven't noticed...Everyone has suddenly created their own interiors fabric line...fashion designers, interior designers, painters etc. My favorite line (besides my own, of course) is Peter Dunham's over at his new and improved store, Hollywood at Home (on the other super street of antique stores on La Cienaga). I think it would be great fun for all fabric designers to get together, spread out an enormous piece of white fabric and each paint a little something on it. Like a joint piece of work that we can hang somewhere and then auction off, proceeds going to Charity...just a thought. Here is a little list for your LA fabric walking tour (or interneting tour, as the case may be)
1. LULU DK at Donghia 1st floor- Pacific Design Center 8687 Melrose Avenue
2. Schumacher also at the Pacific Design Center- representing Kelly Wearstler, Celerie Kemble, Trina Turk, Jamie Drake, and Matthew Patrick Smyth
3. Quick drive around the corner will bring you to Hollywood at Home: Where you will find Peter Dunham, Carolina Irving, Jed Johnson, Lisa Fine and Martyn Lawrence-Bullard
4. Another quick little drive will bring you to Harbinger on Almont Drive where you will find Katie Ridder, Idarica Gazzoni, John Stefanidis and Pintura Studio.
(p.s fabric above is my LULU DK Plumes)
