ALEXA HAMPTON

“Pierre Deux’s La Fete toile de Jouy in blue and gold is one of my favorite document prints. I’ve always loved the architectural background and how well it marries with the more fanciful depictions in the foreground.” Shown: Pierre Deux La Fete toile de Jouy in Blue/Gold 1040113. Available at the D&D Building, NYC, 212-644-4891, pierredeux.com.

MARIO BUATTA

“Lee Jofa’s Floral Bouquet is a classic. I’ve had it in seven apartments since 1963, and I’ve never gotten tired of it. I use it on sofas, pillows and curtains—and the curtains have been moved to many different apartments!” Shown: Lee Jofa Floral Bouquet 889300. Available at the D&D Building, NYC, 212-688-0444, leejofa.com.

CELERIE KEMBLE

“Blair House Palm by Schumacher, with its pendulous banana-like leaves, is my favorite. The variety of color and large pattern make it modern-looking, even though it has the specificity of a historic hand. It feels youthful.” Shown: Schumacher Blair House Palm 169093. Available at the D&D Building, NYC, 212-415-3900, fschumacher.com. All fabrics on this page are available to the trade only.
