Knoll Luxe Collection by Dorothy Cosonas

Every year, creative director for KnollTextiles, Dorothy Cosonas, designs a textile collection for Knoll Luxe. This year, the collection gets its inspiration from two sources: "the classic aesthetic of Florence Knoll" and fashion pioneer Alexander McQueen. The fabrics created by Cosonas include four upholsteries and two draperies "that embody classic modern luxury."

Fashion-Inspired Textiles Feature Random Pattern

The new collection by Cosonas focuses on "rich textures, clear colors and modern patterns." Arezzo, a velvet upholstery with a large-scale pattern, was motivated by a retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the work of the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen. Created by combining computer printing and hand manipulation, Arezzo has a random pattern "where no two yards are alike." Arezzo's expressionistic design comes in four colorways: Dolce, Aqua, Truffle, and Squid Ink.
