ICFF 2013: 10 Great Textile Designers

This year’s ICFF was a textile-lover’s paradise. There were thick wool blankets in intensely colorful patterns, soft cushions that looked like they’d been splattered with beautiful paint and so many rugs that I had to save some for a second post coming up soon. I’m an equal-opportunity textile lover, so I tried to include a range of my favorite subtle textile designs and some more in-your-face textile installations. I hope they’ll inspire you to seek out some beautiful handmade textiles in your area, whether it’s a small rug or a new throw for the couch. xo, grace

Timorous Beasties Have been a long time favorite of mine. This print is new to me. Thanks for sharing. I hope it is HR friendly as their London Toile got me in a spot of bother. So beautiful and clever though! I am having to cover guns with Starbucks coffee cups.


Gorgeous fabrics. So much color and texture. I am a sucker for toile and that couch is no exception.


Wow what an amazing collection of textiles! and that toile couch….. gorgeous!
