FIL DOUX TEXTILES RELEASES EXPRESSIVE ATELIER COLLECTION Upholstery Fabrics that Capture the World of Art from the Studio to the Paintbrush
| New York, NY - May 15, 2019 | Fil Doux Textiles will debut the Atelier Collection of fabrics at HD Expo 2019, which celebrates the creative process found in an artist’s studio. The company was inspired by a totally blank canvas; a clean slate one day, then layered with inspiration the next. Each of the seven designs started as a singular thought and turned into a cohesive collection that mirrors an artist’s journey.
“We created an upholstery collection that reflects the beauty of process,” says President Leo Novik. “Atelier honors the artist found in all of us.“
The name Atelier references an artist’s workshop and was the jumping off point for this collection. Ranging from luxe wovens to colorful digital prints, the patterns in Atelier are named for techniques often employed in the creation of art and its varying styles and mediums.
Free Form: Woven to look like a free-hand sketch with unrestricted artistic gusto, Free Form is able to balance the design of any room. Rich with tonal subtleties, this organic pattern is woven in seven distinct color offerings.
Leaf Press: This pattern balances delicate watercolor branches inspired by leaf and flower pressing techniques, used by both turn of the century botanists and artists to document and preserve specimens of beauty and intrigue. Leaf Press is available in five earth-tones.
Brushstroke: A nod to great pointillist artists of the past, Brushtroke uses soulful colors layered with painterly brushstrokes. Digitally printed onto a luxurious chenille base cloth, it is available in 3 colorways.
Glazed Stripe: Reminiscent of hand-made pottery, large bands of color join together to create this design. Woven with Fil Doux Textiles’ proprietary Experience Blend yarn for a luxury hand combined with hospitality strength, Glazed Stripe is available in six colors.
Scallop: A digital print reminiscent of a fanciful seashell or decadent marbled paper, Scallop takes on a sophisticated twist with the company’s popular herringbone base cloth and is available in five colorful offerings.
Antico: Meaning "ancient style" in Italian, this design is an ode to the past while remaining fresh and luxe. It is available in four soft colorways.
Watercolor: Taken from inky ribbons of hand-painted color on a woven backdrop, Watercolor is a perfectly imperfect digital print stripe, and is available in nine natural dye-inspired offerings.
