Fabric from Smyth's Schumacher Collection
"BEATRICE BOUQUET is a very soft linen that captures light subtly and drapes beautifully. I'd do simple curtains -- the simpler, the better -- with a bronze rod and rings, or a bamboo pole," says designer Matthew P. Smyth. "This isn't a serious, boring damask -- it has a lightness to it. Try PONT ROYAL DAMASK on a skirted armchair, like the Austin Club Chair from DessinFournir. GABRIELLE EMBROIDERY is an elegant silk for light upholstery. It should be on a streamlined piece like the Comédie Chair from Hutton Home, so you see the beautiful lines of the fabric. The crisp, graphic look of DURANCE EMBROIDERY bridges contemporary and traditional. It looks best on large upholstered pieces such as the Wingback Sofa from DessinFournir."
