MAKER’S GUILD For nearly forty years, the Peter Fasano brand has provided leading designers with unique and compelling fabrics and wallcoverings, hand crafted and hand silk-screen printed in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. An exciting chapter in the company’s history is underway with the new leadership of Reid Stewart and Peter Webster, and their inaugural Skylight Collection is available through Charles Spada. “We are giving this great brand a new influx of energy and resources. We’re delivering fresh ideas, relevant to today’s designers; we’re innovating our supply chain to meet the expectations of our increasingly on-demand industry. And, we’re creating new digital interfaces that will assist designers with their projects in a totally new way,” says Reid Stewart. The new Skylight Collection is fresh, fun, and packed with style. It pairs light grounds and powerful colors with patterns that are unmistakably Peter Fasano. Our sample package arrived on a dreary, rainy day and this lively yet harmonious group of fabrics was precisely what we were yearning for. The floral, traditional, and whimsical patterns reflecting Peter Fasano’s original twist that we have loved for decades were all there— just refreshed. New England Home Hall of Fame Designer Michael Carter adds, “I just saw Peter Fasano’s new Skylight Collection and it stopped me in my tracks. Chic meets fresh. I would like to do a whole room around the Reverse Off-Shoot in the chocolate colorway. Bravo!” “I am thrilled to now represent Peter Fasano fabrics in my showroom at the Boston Design Center. Peter Fasano prints have always been, to my mind, fresh, up to the minute, yet classic designs that never smack of trendy. On the contrary, Peter Fasano designs and colorways hold their style. Our designers and clients love the quality and flexibility, the quick turnaround and custom ability offered by Peter Fasano Fabrics. I especially love the inspiring designs and colorways of the new Skylight Collection, the superb Wood Block Collection, and the range of classic Fasano prints and wallpapers,” says showroom owner Charles Spada. “Our legacy of expert custom work will continue forward as a very important component of our offering. Many of our craftspeople have been with the company for over twenty-five years, giving Peter Fasano a distinct advantage in this area of the business—and it’s something we love to do!” says Stewart.
