Diane von Furstenberg has debuted a collection of to-the-trade upholstery fabrics and
trimmings with Kravet. Many designers have broadened their purview from the runway to
the rooms in which we live. For Von Furstenberg —who crossed over into the home
decor space years ago with bedding, dinnerware, and rugs— this evolution came
naturally. "Designing anything is about having a point of view," she explains. "It’s about
being able to express yourself, and the process is the same for a dress or a fabric."
Indeed, Von Furstenberg’s line is an expression of her signature aesthetic: bold colors
and vibrant patterns, including crisp geometrics and riffs on classic animal prints. And,
much like the designer’s wrap dress (a garment that deserves the often-overused
adjective iconic), Von Furstenberg’s collection for Kravet embodies sophistication and
ease all at once.
