Last week at Maison & Objet in Paris, fine fabric manufacturer Robert Allen introduced Pigment; its new Spring 2013 Color Library collection with palettes inspired by artist’s such as Matisse and de Kooning.
The Robert Allen Spring 2013 Color Library collection’s colors draw inspiration from the saturated tones found in an artist’s pure pigments.
The new palettes include Lush green Viridian, fashionable Fuchsia, bright Turquoise, and rich Cobalt. All four shades of yarn are dyed to the Robert Allen design team’s exact specifications, making them one-of-a-kind.
In keeping with a springtime theme and falling in line with current fashion and home trends, the vibrant green Viridian took center stage for the Maison & Objet launch. Robert Allen’s Vice President of Design, Christy Almond, commented: “Viridian is a punchy green that’s perfectly in tune with the current bold and bright design aesthetic you find in cutting-edge interiors and on today’s runways. It is unexpected, yet easy to understand.”
Together with Robert Allen’s new Turquoise and Cobalt blue colors, the collection has an overall relaxed and fresh feel that’s set off by an intense Fuchsia that adds flashes of summertime color. The full library of four colors can easily be merged for a wide variety of looks ranging from lively and bold to classic and calming.
The fabric line includes statement designs and unique coordinates that encourage pattern-on-pattern mixing in addition to practical canvas, velvet, and linen solids.
