Bedrock is an allover small-scale stippled effect print. The random assortment of micro brush strokes in cream/off white breaks up the power of the lacquer red without taking away from it.

Twisted Knot

Twisted Knot – lacquer red
Similar to Robert Allen’s Bedrock, Twisted knot uses cream/off white negative space between the geometric rope detailing to create interest in the pattern. Twisted knot is a traditional style, that is easily spiced up with the bold color scheme.

Big Spring

Big Spring paints a surreal dream of multi-leveled ornamental gardens connected by bending and swirling tressils. If you look closely, the pattern has many detailed motifs. The miniature temples with lotus flowers and branches surrounding give off traditional regal splendor. Adjacent from the temples, a large oriental vase showcases an assortment of flowers in a dainty bouquet.

High Run

High Run – lacquer red

This abstract print cant exactly be labeled zebra stripes, because it also looks like the ripples in running water. This comprehensive print provides texture on any upholstery project you could imagine.


Mitaka – lacquer red
This ornate print features Greek inspired geometric formations that cascade in all directions. It is reminiscent of something you’d find in the Natural History Museum on a ancient pottery display.
