“This line provides an instant update to a classic material with the variety of striking color options,” says Caponi. “With several thicknesses, this felt transcends furniture to walls and floors.”
“I would love to use this on the back of a banquette—the gradation creates soft movement,” Caponi says.
“It’s a fun, large-scale that goes from mild to bold color combinations,” Caponi says.

“This is wonderfully fun and playful, as though it is a sequined expanse when on a lounge piece,” Delano says. “Everyone at NeoCon® had to touch it when they walked by—when designers can’t stop staring and touching a product, it’s a sign of success.”
“The visual and physical textures possible with an epingle cannot be beat,” Delano says. “This one has a luxurious feel and look in colors more complex than a bright solid yet can still energize a space.”
“Dots Damask has a neat trick up its sleeve: Viewed from a distance, it appears to be a traditional damask, but as you get closer it reveals itself as a very modern dot pattern and the damask disappears,” Delano says.

“A combination of pattern and texture gives this herringbone such intensity. It’s a very hearty product, and the pattern is actually stitched rather than printed—almost like knitting. Feel that?” Cherry asks. “The hand is nice.”
“I think of it as a modern interpretation of grandma’s sofa. Up close it looks like pixels, but stand back and it’s a large-scale rose pattern. It’s a beautiful marriage of contemporary abstraction and traditional needlepoint,” Cherry says.
“A reissue of Alexander Girard’s vintage prints, it’s a gingham design that feels very fresh. The beauty of it is its large scale, which means if you upholster four chairs with it, each will have a different look,” says Cherry.
