New Fall Releases From Maharam

Inspired by textiles of the 20th Century and the modernist era, American textile brand Maharam has created faithful reissues of original contract textiles from its extensive archive.

Called Pressed Plaid, Soft Tweed, Wool Rib and Wool Striae the new launches are typified by classic constructions, natural fibers, and an elemental character.

The four designs, due to launch this fall, are original Contract Textiles that have been drawn from Maharam’s archive or are interpretations of the aesthetic principles from the time when performance-measured textiles for commercial interiors first emerged.

Soft Tweed is a linen blend with a warm hand and supple drape. Its thick-and-thin yarns and subtle tonal variations combine in a rustic surface with a handwoven appearance.

Wool Rib achieves a similar homespun effect through weave structure. Two-tone contrast emphasizes the dimensionality and slight irregularity of its vertical channels.

Woven in Scotland, Pressed Plaid and Wool Striae use dense woolen yarns to explore color mixing at a magnified scale. Both textiles employ planted, or striped, warps, but to different effect.

Pressed Plaid is a crisp tartan in a vivid palette. Anchored by blocks of solid color, pointillist panes appear transparent, adding visual depth to a surface flecked by heathered yarns.

Wool Striae is a careful arrangement of neutral and bright colors into a fluid vertical ombre. A smooth finish is achieved through an application of heat and pressure.
