Luxurious Rich Fabric Collection

Texture, colour, design, material, technique: all melted together in these great products!
A luxurious fabric collection by Thomas O'Brian for Groundworks, seen on Inspired Talk and available from Lee Jofa.


A fascinating combination !

This Sequined Floral Cushion is a great example of:
> combining techniques:
printing and paillette embroidery

> combining colourpalettes:
divers bold colours with greyscale or ton-sur-ton effect in one design

> combining artistic styles:
vague watercolor flowers and detailed botanical prints

> the interacting combination of product versus surface design:
the playing with light and reflection is stimulated by the dimensions of the end product creating an overall added value

What a great and unusual application! This contemporary building in Mumbai is patterned with the famous traditional Indian motif: the paisley.


ORANGE: ethnic, retro or traditional

A color currently gaining popularity is orange. Giving a warm feel to any pattern type. The combination with other colours determines the final athmosphere.
