Art and fabrics collide thanks to a London designer

Margo Selby is first and foremost a
craftsperson-an artist who is constantly
reinventing herself by playing with texture,
materials, and patterns in new, innovative
ways. Her modernist style incorporates
geometric motifs in diverse combinations,
which recently led to a textile collaboration
with Designtex and West Elm that includes
high-performance contract textile Triform,
showing off bold triangular motifs made from
varying configurations of stripes.
As a child growing up in London, she
always had a penchant for fabric and trained
in woven textile design at Chelsea College
of Art, followed by a postgraduate degree
from the Royal College of Art. It was during
her time working for industrial mills that "I
combined my handwoven constructions with
industrial machinery," Selby notes. Textured
fabrics are a hallmark of her eponymous
textile design company, and she is particular
about where she sources her wool and silk,
choosing trusted craftspeople in Scotland and
India, respectively.
Besides her daring use of contrasting
colors "to create lively harmonization," what
makes Selby standout is her versatile textile
offerings, including furniture, artwork, and
rugs. "Fabric is the starting point for anything
I make," she says, adding that she wants to
remove the boundaries associated with textile
work (repeat sizes, sampling considerations,
and durability).
It's fitting that many of her creations are
featured in a number of hospitality settings-
the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London and
the Crown Casino in Australia, to name a
couple-because Selby sees herself akin to
an architect with the warp, like a building's
foundation, becoming the backbone of the
fabric and an integral part of the design. As
she says, when it comes to the loom, "it feels
like I am painting with yarn." hd

tones.
