Diane von Furstenberg for Kravet


"Color palettes range from berry and orange jewel tones inspired by the sunsets in Rajasthan ...."

this is the home decor equivalent of a runway show


"...to azure blues that recall the Caribbean sea..."




"...and desert-inspired neutrals in sand and stone."





Diane von Furstenberg for Kravet Collections is the latest textile house collaboration with a fashion designer.

Bold geometrics, wild animal prints and fearless use of color are true to DVF's aesthetic and iconic style. I can see echoes of von Furstenberg's groundbreaking wrap dresses of the '70's (which have never fit me although I occasionally try them on -- just in case!).



And plenty of black and white too.

This can only be DVF.



Kravet and Diane von Furstenberg nailed the "runway to room" concept. The leap from fashion to furnishings is by no means easy to pull off, in fact it is difficult at best. Dressing a woman and upholstering a sofa have little in common other than fabric. The scale and proportions of architecture or furniture are so vastly different from the human body and what looks good on your back rarely makes for a great sofa or curtains.

If you are a DVF fan and are not shy about color and pattern, this collection is for you. Email me, we'll chat.

Well done Kravet! Brava DVF!
