Suzanne Rheinstein for Lee Jofa
Above, "Folie Chinoise," is an overscale French chinoiserie print, on all cotton, adapted from a mid-century French design. Rheinstein sees this as ideal for a large wing chair.
Above, "Dotted Leaf," the most graphic pattern in Rheinstein's collection, was inspired by an 18th century English indigo resist print.
Above, "Ikat De Lin," a large scale print on handwoven linen.
"Sensuous and comforting" is how Suzanne Rheinstein describes the translucent colors she chose for her debut collection of fabrics designed for Lee Jofa. The line is set to launch in the fall. Expect to see Rheinstein's signature milky aquas, warm honey tones, bronzes and gray-greens. Above are a few of my favorites. Not surprisingly, I especially adore the large scale "Folie Chinoise."
