Designer’s Own

Six designers pick their current favorites from their own lines

Bill Diamond and Anthony Baratta

 "Woven in Italy, "Roma" for Lee Jofa is a modern pattern that is not only luxurious, but wears like steel."


Matthew Patrick Smyth


 "Inspired by an antique Indian block print, "Beatrice Bouquet" for Schumacher is one of my favorites because of its scale, colorways and ability to blend with many different schemes. It can work in any room in the house."


Kelly Wearstler


 "This "Bengal Bazaar" from my Lee Jofa Groundworks line is a modern take on a classic Ikat pattern. I love this color combination of lavender, purple and gray—it’s surprisingly versatile and works great with other neutrals."


Jamie Drake


 "I’m in love with "Not Square," a cut velvet from my line for Schumacher. Its lustrous silk-and-cotton grid pattern is separated by a warm, subtle metallic that works with both gold and silver tones. It’s rich but extremely durable, perfect for upholstery."


Philip Gorrivan


 "One fabric I love from my collection with Duralee/Highland Court is "Alhambra," a cut velvet. The tessellated pattern is both visually alive and relaxing. It comes in more than six colorways; my favorite is charcoal. I can imagine decorating an entire room in it. It would be amazing."


Sally Sirkin Lewis


 "I developed the hand-woven silk fabric "Klimt" for J. Robert Scott based on patterns in the work of Gustav Klimt. In a serene neutral setting, I think the upholstered piece should be a focal point, as it is here. To me the fabric itself is like a painting!"
