ICFF 2014: Textiles + Rugs

by Grace Bonney

I’m always drawn toward the textiles at ICFF, but this year there weren’t quite as many eye-catching pieces as I’d hoped. I think wallpaper has taken some of the pattern excitement away from textiles and into the world of paper, but there were still some great pieces to found. I particularly loved the way pattered textiles were incorporated into upholstery and lighting. There was even a great one-of-a-kind piece from Hinterland Design that was inspired by crab nets. Whether you’re looking for heavy weaving or digitally printed florals, there’s something here for everyone. I hope you’ll enjoy our textile highlights…xo, grace
