TRINA TURK by the Pool or at Table

Schumacher has teamed up with savvy CA. fashion designer, TRINA TURK , to create a new "Living- Life- Proof" textile collection.

Right from the SCHUMACHER site!- A detailed design statement from Schumacher:

Trina Turk
Trina’s dramatic collection of indoor/outdoor prints, many of which were originally designed for her resort collections, are inspired by the poolside lifestyle of Los Angeles and Palm Springs, and also the variety of cultural influences and landscapes that are found in California. Bold geometric patterns are mixed with prints derived from natural motifs, and also designs discovered in Trina’s extensive collection of vintage apparel. The color palette of this collection is fashion-influenced; bright and breezy shades of turquoise, citron, watermelon and marine are combined with smart neutrals such as sand dune and charcoal, giving these outdoor suitable prints a thoroughly modern appeal.

I have selected two of Trina's fabrics for a spring outdoor courtyard- porch project that will include new furniture pieces from Gloster and an extensive array of inherited wrought iron pieces. I've also decided to use a graphic giraffe pattern from Groundworks. I would love to add some yellow paint to a piece or two of the wrought iron but I'm not firm on that yet.

I love the practicality of these new fabrics and have used them for years on furniture IN the house. A Scalamandre indoor/outdoor fabric went on a french chair for a Living Room and now resides in a bedroom in the client's new residence. A Kravet fabric that is and indoor/outdoor chenille covers a pair of sofas in a bright family-dining-kitchen space that looks out on a lovely pool and rustic landscape. The sofas take everything an active family with two large dogs throws at it.

Here are the fabrics- All from the Schumacher website:

I think my client could actually get away with this- I'll have to mention it.
