Upon close inspection the stripes offer exquisite texture and visual relief, while a thinner parallel white stripe punctuates the ground between each braid, accenting the subtle beauty of the raised details.
Spring is a time of renewal, when heavy down jackets are carefully packed away until next season, and lighter, more vibrant fabrics make a triumphant return. While this turnover occurs naturally in one’s wardrobe, the need for renewal is often overlooked in home decor. However, just as the right accent piece ties a room together, and the right texture transforms the everyday into luxury, rejuvenation is key for your linens as well. Whether it’s a small redecoration or you’re embarking upon an entirely new home design, the luxury linens from Calvin Fabrics’ Spring Liaison collection are the perfect choice.
The go-to for fine Belgian linens, Calvin Fabrics are a favorite amongst designers and consumers alike. This season, the company have introduced a rare new collection after pairing up with one of just a handful of American mills using 100% belgian linen warp. The nature of Belgian flax is such that it requires an attentive weaving process, and thereby such a slow pace, that it is only created by master artisans. Calvin Fabrics were one of first companies to bring Belgian linens into the US market, and now they have become liaisons, connecting American artisans with the luxurious Belgian fabric.
With this historic new American production, Calvin Fabrics have enhanced the neutral color palette typically associated with Belgian fabrics. The Liaison collection represents the joys of Spring, ranging from simple basics to rich, saturated colors. For example, the Tryst linen is a modern take on the classic ticking stripes, incorporating a braided and raised color stripe that create a ticking illusion when viewed from afar. Upon close inspection the stripes offer exquisite texture and visual relief, while a thinner parallel white stripe punctuates the ground between each braid, accenting the subtle beauty of the raised details. This duo-tone colorway pairs a natural flaxen-tone with seasonal colors, including Spring-green aloe and rich purple plum.
The four-piece collection incorporate the joyous feeling of the season, with the eight-colorway Rapport linen featuring a handsome stripe of bright poppy red, with the textural complexity of speckled yarns in the Affinity linen and the stylized herringbone of the Rendezvous linen evoking the artful contours of ferns.
Calvin Fabrics’ new Liaison collection will be in showrooms starting March 1, available through your interior designer. For more information visit www.calvinfabrics. com/hauteliving or call +1.888.732.1996.
