In celebration of it’s 125th anniversary, Schumacher has just released a line of fabrics in patterns collected from it’s archives. Founded in 1889, Schumacher has a wealth of amazing pattern and color to pull from. We personally think they picked some winners here. Here are a few of our faves….

We love using animal prints, and we love navy. We are loving the combination of two of our favorite things here on the Iconic Leopard pattern, in color Ink. This one is on a white ground but it comes on an off-white ground, as well, along with several other great colorways!

Next up ‘the lemon print’ as we call it around here, officially know as Citrus Garden.  This print is based on an archival botanical pattern designed by midcentury architect Josef Frank in 1947. The pattern, which is on linen, is whimsical with a hand-drawn feel.  We love both colorways (and it looks amazing with that navy leopard!!)

Another standout, Indian Arbre, we love all the colorways but especially this one:

Chintz and toile…we mentioned them in previous posts because they are trending. This collection includes both:

We can’t wait to see (and feel) these two fabrics in person. On the left is Serengeti, a rich chenille animal print and on the right Shockwave, which is a luxurious silk velvet. We love how these graphic fabrics could work in a traditional or contemporary space…
