8/23/13 10:53 AM

Donghia Suite 631 Donghia’s fall 2013 textile collection takes cues from the artistry of a Spanish matador’s performance. Comprised of 11 patterns, each textile embodies the essence of movement, drawing parallels between culture, its surroundings and the dance of a singular performer. Seen throughout the collection are hints of shimmer and embroidery, inspired by the elaborately embellished matador’s costume, known as traje de luces “suit of lights.”


Atelier Lapchi Suite 6–160 Inspired by a fragment of a 16th and 17th century Islamic Kashi tile, Lapchi’s new Medici pattern is a classic example of the delicate undulating geometries that turned palaces, mosques and mausoleums into jewel boxes of pattern and color.

Baker, Knapp & Tubbs Suite 6–187

Edelman Leather Suite 6–128 Join us to celebrate our new alliance partner TruStile Doors, and WOODLAND, our latest collection. Sharp lines and a fine embossing with hand crafted overtones make this collection versatile especially for door and wall applications.

Fabricut/Vervain/S. Harris/Stroheim Suite 6–117 Fabricut’s Nate Berkus—Color features over 100 patterns and textures that Nate designed to layer and work together. Merchandised in three color stories (Ochre, Quarry and Seaport), Nate Berkus—Color represents the color and pattern trends Nate reaches for first when designing for his own home or for his clients.

The Michael S. Smith Collection Martine Cabinet is a bold neoclassical statement with couture details reminiscent of the post–war Hollywood Regency. While the cabinet itself has a dignified restraint, Michael S. Smith looks to bespoke metalwork for a precise yet dignified look. The top rim is a single complex casting, and the body has a remarkably precise inlaid brass bead, substantial decorative collars and delicate pulls. Visit the Baker Showroom to view this and other new additions to the Michael S. Smith Collection.
