Wesco Fabrics on Launching New Decorative Fabrics

Wesco Fabrics participated in the Denver Design Center LAUNCH event earlier this month, and we loved seeing some of their stylish offerings.

We love traveling and working with Dick and Marla Gentry because they are always interested in different cultures and different design aesthetics.  They delve into each country they visit and everything the country has to offer.  They then use what they have discovered in their travels to help them create stunning collections of fabrics.  We Asked Dick to do a guest post for us explaining how he comes up with his collections.  Below is his post about launching new decorative fabrics:

I develop new decorative fabric collections for Wesco Fabrics throughout the year. The process starts by scanning world-wide textile and home furnishing markets for trend snippets that form my vision on directions. I plunge into anything that may inspire such as fashion, museum exhibits, and all sorts of media. Recent retrospectives of couturiers, Yves Saint Laurent and Jean Paul Gaultier, were visually exciting with their courage to take risks.

One of our new offerings from the Gentry Collection, “Imagine,” showcased beautiful designs in a harmonious palette. A key motif is the Suzani, a tribal textile design from the “stans,” Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, and throughout Central Asia. Woven matelassé designs in a soft spring palette were also standouts.
