I just had a few minutes before closing to check in with the reps at P&B Textiles. They were getting a lot of deserved attention for two lines in particular — Toomuchery by Helen Dardik and Gallery Fiori by Karen Tusinski. Both artists are represented by Lilla Rogers studio, with whom P&B has been contracting with the last couple of years to bring some great design to fabric (Helen Dardik’s first collection, Mod Kitchen, Caroline Gavin‘s Wild Thyme and Spring Street, and Jenn Ski’s Aldo to Zippy). They are obviously very aesthetically different collections, but they are both modern and they both use palettes I wasn’t seeing a lot of among contemporary designers at market.
At this point in my day, I just wanted to kick off my shoes and curl up in that Toomuchery chair.
Karen’s line, Gallery Fiori, were mounted on stretchers like canvases. It was a really simple and a really beautiful display.
Both these collections will start shipping in late summer.
