Brunschwig & Fils Showroom

Holland & Company Antiques and Reproductions MacRae Designs

Having joined the Kravet family of brands in March 2011, the new Brunschwig & Fils design studio has created a collection that captures the company’s signature bold and colorful French-inspired style. Featured: Les Alizés, a new fabric and trimmings collection, is named for the fabled easterly trade winds found in the tropics and will be available in Brunschwig & Fils showrooms this fall. A documentary French hand printed fabric based on an Indian palampore complements an exotic ikat pattern and Turkish Ottoman Empire designs, all of which were culled from the extensive Brunschwig & Fils archive.
