Design Within Reach Maharam DWR Pillow in Ottoman Stripe Design Within Reach Maharam DWR Pillow in Ottoman Stripe

DWR Exclusive The collaboration between the textile company Maharam and British fashion designer Paul Smith could be attributed to Gio Ponti. After seeing a silk pattern designed by the prolific Italian designer, Smith approached Maharam for permission to use it as a lining for his menswear jackets. Shortly after, he began using archival Maharam textiles in his accessories collection, and a collaboration on a new upholstery collection quickly followed. Smiths Ottoman Stripe (2012) fabric for Maharam brings new dimension to his familiar yet unique language of stripes by punctuating a lustrous worsted wool satin with colorful bands to create the ribbed or corded effect known as ottoman. This fabric is Greenguard Gold certified and may contribute to LEED certification. This is an authentic Paul Smith fabric produced by Maharam Design Studio. Made in U.S.A. Materials: FABRIC, 92% wool, 8% nylon. INSERT, 90% goose feathers, 10% goose down. Measurements:L 21" W 11" L 17" W 17" L 26" W 18"

Design Within Reach Maharam Pillow in Arabesque Design Within Reach Maharam Pillow in Arabesque

DWR Exclusive Trained as an architect but proficient in nearly all design disciplines, Alexander Girard had a profound impact on 20th-century visual culture. Shortly after being introduced to Herman Miller by Charles Eames and George Nelson in 1952, Girard became the textile divisions founding director of design, a position he held for the next 21 years. He designed over 300 textiles during his tenure there, all the while benefiting from the freedom to explore wildly different approaches to fabric production, yarn content, pattern, texture, color and mood. Staggering not only in its sheer volume but also in its stunning creativity, his body of work remains relevant to this day. Maharam has reissued a total of 20 Girard patterns to date as part of its Textiles of the 20th CenturyTM series, dedicated to faithfully reissuing the textiles of great multidisciplinary designers of the past – from Anni Albers and Charles and Ray Eames to Josef Hoffmann, Verner Panton and Gio Ponti. Girard conceived Arabesque (1954) in just his third year at Herman Miller. Its characterized by offset weft striping and ribbons of geometric motifs, with a basket weave that adds rustic texture to the background and a dense weft satin that gives the details an embroidered feel. Fabric made in U.S.A. Materials: Fabric pillowcase (44% cotton, 28% nylon, 28% wool); cotton ticking; feather filling. Measurements:L 21" W 11" L 17" W 17" L 26" W 18"

Design Within Reach Axis Pillow Design Within Reach Axis Pillow

DWR Exclusive After graduating from the Royal College of Art and Design in London, textile designer Tamasyn Gambell headed to Paris, where she mastered her trade at couture houses such as Sonia Rykiel and Louis Vuitton. In 2007 she relocated to Stockholm to explore the opposite end of the spectrum as a print designer for H&M, launching her own company a year later. A true contemporary modernist, Gambell believes that good design and green design go hand in hand. I use the most eco-friendly materials and processes, she says, as I believe that designers have a responsibility to the environment and that being green does not have to compromise style or quality. In creating her Axis Pillow (2012), Gambell was inspired by the colors and energy of tribal textiles and the shapes and simplicity of iconic Bauhaus design. The result is a collection of throw pillows that defy the whims of fashion. The fabric is sourced from a mill in Italy and printed by Gambell and her team in South London. Made in the U.K. Pillows exhibit variances from one to the next since theyre individually cut from fabric with a repeating pattern, making each one unique. Materials: Irish linen; water-based pigments; invisible zipper; 90% goose feather, 10% goose down filling; 230 cotton ticking lining. Measurements:Small: L 18" W 13" Medium: L 20" W 20"
