designers select Steven McCollom Workplace Offerings Manager, Intuit San Francisco Karen Ostromecki Principal KO Design Rochester, New York 1 2 Steven McCollom, AIA, IIDA 1. Camira Fabrics: Blazer Check www.camirafabrics.com Reader Service No. 291 Color me wowed. Take a staid check, abstract it, and introduce super-saturated hues that create conversation pieces. This New Zealand wool fabric has a sensuous hand and its color combinations help enliven a space. 2. HBF Textiles: Flywheel www.hbftextiles.com Reader Service No. 292 Tales of the City: Fabric Edition. Energizing geometries that evoke psychedelic trips (flywheel foreground) meet traditional morals (field) rendered in six eye-pleasing palettes. Kudos for incorporating eco-friendly content and high performance. 3. Luna Textiles: Sketch Stripe www.lunatextiles.com Reader Service No. 293 I’m a sucker for stripes, and this undulating stripe is scaled to work equally well on pieces both large and small. It comes in gorgeous colorways that whet the design appetite, and it’s a workhorse with bona fide performance chops that cover the institutional, corporate, and hospitality fronts. 3 fabric Two designers tell Contract readers about their favorite new fabrics Karen Ostromecki, IIDA, NCIDQ 4. Maharam: Centric www.maharam.com Reader Service No. 294 Centric is a fashion-forward concept fresh off the runway from Maharam. The exciting avant-garde artist who designed it, Marion Banties, created a traditional pattern but rendered it in modern colors. The result is a fluid pattern that offers variation and transforms an upholstered piece. 5. Création Baumann: Rosalie www.creationbaumann.com Reader Service No. 295 An elegant and environmentally friendly wool-blend fabric, Rosalie has a laser-cut ornamental pattern that lets beams of sunshine trickle in. The pattern produces a cheery light spectacle throughout the day. 6. Pallas: Vespa www.pallastextiles.com Reader Service No. 296 This upholstery fabric has a modern and sleek texture that conveys movement. The surface resembles brushstrokes on a canvas, with simple colors that resonate like a Rothko painting. It’s easy to clean and high-performance so, just like the scooter, it’s suitable for high-traffic areas. 130 contract july/august 2011 5 4 6 www.contractdesign.com http://www.camirafabrics.com http://www.hbftextiles.com http://www.lunatextiles.com http://www.maharam.com http://www.creationbaumann.com http://www.pallastextiles.com http://www.contractdesign.com
