New Collections

Had to RSVP this invite for the showing of
new textiles of Ralph Lauren among others at Kravet showroom at IMS this am. With image cute as this to promote presentation, who can resist?







Yummm, don't mind if I do ... Thanks Kravetcafe!




New prints... Super cute Indienne influenced, soft colors








Both wovens and prints in Exotic Traveler show suzani, ikat, and other Central Asian motifs still strong selling patterns




Recycled cotton poly and super great prices per yd. Give the people what they want!




New outdoor fabrics, Kravet Soleil

And these two for my pinterest pinboard My Latest Obsession - new fabric with an abstract expressionistic nature. LOVE these... I also collect midcentury Ab Ex fabrics to sell - you should come in and see!


Midwest rep John Collins shows layer after layer of new fabric lines


Tons of new "plains" - new sample books by Kravet Smart, Guanteed In Stock. Great durability, great color lines




Ralphie's new outdoor fabric line, Grasslands...









Fabulous soft woven, dhurrie-like stripes

And of course, the lovely wools... Brookfield, Fairfield Plaids... they always layer nicely with the other woven and printed fabrics from Every room should have some wool!

Great novelty prints ; architectural elements, bikers, detailed exotic fish, pen nibs, monkeys in arches, theater balcony sitters, owls, etc etc, each delightful renderings, colorways and print finish.


And of course carpet collections



Wool and viscose, hand tufted from lee Jofa






Pointing out great tufting, sculpting and loop on these custom wool and sisal rugs. Even the reps who work with them every day can't keep their hands off the luxurious nap of these rugs!



Gorgeous, one and all. Will definitely request samples to present to our customers in shop at Miller Upholstering on East Lake Street.
