Oregon-based designer Jen West raves about Groves Bros. hand-printed Venetian-style textiles. She used "Monferato" in Butternut to reinvent some vintage chairs with lovely lines.
Be sure to click these images to appreciate the details. Interestingly, Jen says she now prefers Groves Bros. to the venerable Fortuny. "It feels much heavier than Fortuny," she explains.
Robert Kime's "Susani" linen was Jen's choice for the Dunbar chairs, below. Mixed with these are six blue chairs sporting posh Fortuny on the back and less expensive Pindler linen on the front.
