The Delamere Damask is a large-scale damask in varying neutral shades. This pattern contains gorgeous nature scenery mixed among varying decorative motifs.

Palatine Stripe

A palatine or palatinus is a high-level official attached to imperial or royal courts in Europe since Roman times. So as the name implies, this is a classic stripe with imperial influence.

Collection Drummond Houndstooth

Nothing says professionalism and sophistication like a tightly woven checker houndstooth. The Drummond Houndstooth is everything we love about a design tailored suit jacket, but for the walls of your home.

Crayford Paisley

The Crayford Paisley is one of our favorites within the Ralph Lauren Wallpaper collection. Highlighted arcs connect gorgeous spiraling paisleys in this truly meticulously detailed print.

Castlehead Paisley is a stunning paisley of royal proportions. This large-scale print is intricately detailed with twisting and interlocking floral motifs. The inner details of each motif resemble the lace on a wedding dress. Available in a dark solemn red and green mix, or the more angelic pewter.

Marlowe Floral

The color combinations of the Marlowe Floral are built on elegance. Ralph Lauren Wallpapers created this covering with the calming ambiance of England’s beautiful rolling hills and gardens in mind.

Chelsea Damask

The Chelsea Damask is a lighter toned damask with less contrast in colors, for a blended more subtle look than the Gwynne Damask.

Collection Round Up

The Ralph Lauren Archival English Papers II showcase is packed with a wide variety of damask, paisley, stripes, and floral designs. With the upscale and calming colorways any paper from this collection can give you the elegance you’re seeking. Until Next time!

He and his team have undertaken many methods of extensive research in rug creation to discover the perfect blend of wool sourcing from countries such as Iran, Afghanistan, and the United Kingdom.

Wool isn’t the only material used in these artisan rugs, the team has experimented in mediums such as jute, linen, silk, and they are even beginning research into sustainable and recycled materials for the growing demand in the market today Christopher Farr rugs pass through the hands of many talented individuals before arriving at your doorstep.

Schumacher Fabric : Caroline Z Hurley’s Minimal Collection 2018

Minimalism At It’s Finest

Schumacher Fabric’s newest collection comes from a Brooklyn based artist, Caroline Z Hurley. This talented young individual started off as a full time preschool teacher in New York. It wasn’t until she took a trip to Indonesia it changed everything.
I was block printing in my studio and started incorporating these pieces into my paintings. I began making a couple block-printed pieces for my home and sharing them with friends and family. Later, a shop reached out to me.
Hurley’s collection with Schumacher Fabric is composed of thoughtful and artistic geometric simplicity. She uses pops of color to create interest and meaning within these symbolic patterns.

Patterns within Schumacher Fabric’s Caroline Z Hurley Collection:

  • Cedar Tree Neck
  • Great Rock Sheer
  • Great Rock Embroidery
  • Icehouse
  • Joshua Tree
  • Menemsha
  • Oaxaca
  • Overlapping Dashes
  • Overlapping Triangles
  • Sepiessa
  • Tashmoo
  • Tiasquam
  • Tiasquam Weave


Cedar Tree Neck is an excellent minimal arrangement of vertical dashes with varying spacing. The negative space create a loose checkered effect that doesn’t feel forced but rather creates interest.


Schumacher Fabric’s Great Rock is a simplistic pattern consisting of dotted lines and curves placed to create a visually stunning arrangement. Sometimes less is more, especially with a geometric print like this one. Embroidery is available now, just click the pattern to check it out.


Icehouse consists of vertical and horizontal line fragments in contrasting colors. Available in a light cream backdrop with navy and white, or the neutral beige backdrop with black and white.


Joshua Tree, as pictured at the beginning of the article, is a hand block-printed pattern portraying the different cycles of the moon. Inspired by nights spent camping under the stars, available in Natural with pops of primary colors, or the Indigo imitating the calming night sky.


At a distance, Menemsha looks like a plain heathered pattern of assorted earth tone neutrals. Upon a closer look, this pattern contains micro brush strokes of white in varying directions.


Oaxaca is a state in southern Mexico known for its indigenous cultures. Its capital city of the same name is noted for colonial buildings often made of green volcanic stone. This pattern portrays the varying heights of the city’s skyline.


Overlapping Dashes mixes camel and white minimal line arrangements that overlap in the center for contrast. Overlapping Triangles combines black triangles in the background with a smaller white triangle placed on top for a grey neutral space in between.


Sepiessa is based on a painting by Caroline Z Hurley that showcases over-sized gestural brush strokes.


Tashmoo is a vertical stripe pattern with micro triangles and dashed lines.


Originally handpainted by Caroline Z Hurley on paper, Tiasquam imitates the art of hand-blocking with its subtle variations throughout the pattern.


A woven rendition of the Tiasquam pattern pictured above.     Caroline Z Hurley & Schumacher hope to bring life back into the textile rich city of New Bedford as it originally was before the great depression.
