Fabric Friday: Barbara Barry Indochine Collection for Kravet

Posted by    |    August 6th, 2011 at 5:50 am

Who knew you could reach nirvana through fabric? Barbara Barry’s new Asian-inspired collection for Kravet is sure to take you there! The Indochine Collection, inspired by Barry’s latest tour through the orient, consists of fabrics, trimmings, carpet, drapery hardware and wall coverings that pay homage to the colors, textures and patterns of Asia.

“Asia has been a large influence on me and my work because of its ancient culture, the graciousness of its people and the way they use and relate to nature,” said Barry. “Indochine has so many different moods to it and in the hands of designers I know that it will unfold in compelling ways.”

Right: Fabric: Marco Polo-11, Carpet: Temple Key in Silver

Barry’s signature subdued color palette is reinterpreted into the ancient colors of Asia: lotus and silver; lacquer and blanc de chine; gold and fig. Less subdued colors found in the collection were influenced by other Asian aesthetics like the red lacquer doors of the Forbidden City.

Carpet is available in signature Indochine designs and colors, and is fully customizable in wool and viscose options through the Barbara Barry Elegant Floors collection. I love the classy yet eclectic look of the Ink Brush carpet pictured in pewter in the picture above, left.

I am also particularly drawn to the unique drapery hardware and trims featured in this collection. These pieces add perfect finishing touches for a beautifully layered space and the box of trims shown below has enough inspiration in color and texture to design an entire room!
