Schumacher is one of the oldest and most respected names in interior design. Founded in New York in 1889, the company notes that founder Frederic Schumacher "was a keen distiller of popular taste.The fabrics he imported were the most refined that Europe could offer: brocades and damasks designed for Catherine the Great; velvets fit for Louis XV. His client list soon included top-shelf talent like Stanford White. Schumacher fabrics lined walls at the Breakers and the Waldorf Astoria Hotel." Schumacher has kept its finger on the pulse of fashion ever since, and the company has just released its Schumacher Classics collection, select patterns from the company archives that have been updated in fresh new colorways.
One of the classic designs, above, is Sandoway Vine in the Delft colorway. The design is based on a 19th-century French Indienne print and was reinterpreted on a fine linen ground. The all-over floral motifs are graphic yet delicate, and they echo paisley’s exotic patterning. It comes in the original three color palettes plus three stylish new options. The fabric is suitable for curtains, pillows, headboards and light upholstery.
This 54-inch fabric has a horizontal repeat of 18 inches, a vertical repeat of 27 inches, and is made of 100 percent linen. If you'd like to learn more about the Schumacher Classics or other Schumacher fabrics, please call Knox and Panoply at 770-251-4557 and we'll be happy to assist you.
