Think Big Sur with its jagged coastline, crashing waves onto soft sand, ancient redwood trees and beautiful light as part of your daily lifestyle. Blending together are the natural elements of stone, wood and sea colors in nature to inspire our outstanding California designers. Look outside your back door and you too can find a wealth of inspiration!
California colors reflect those found around their coastlines: sandy beiges, marine blues, shell greys and warm corals.

“California is a major point of inspiration to me. There is so much organic beauty, from the rugged, layered coastline and lush botanical gardens to the vast and scenic desert scapes. With this collection I wanted to evoke the unaffected luxury and natural beauty of the diverse terrain in a versatile play of patterns, colors and textures. The rhythmic patterns of an ocean wave, the labyrinth of a botanical garden, the subdued tonal hues of the shoreline. The idea was to capture an easy, yet elegant, raw and refined vibe.” – Kelly Wearstler

Once an avid water polo player, Los Angeles based interior designer Jeffrey Alan Marks’ Kravet and Portfolio fabric collections express his passion for the ever changing California coastline.
“I am a Californian designer and am inspired by the clear and constant light that illuminates the subtlety and nuance of texture and color. Like the multitude of shades in the grains of sand on a beach, I like to mimic nature by using many tones of one hue throughout a room.” Barbara Barry
“Every year I head to Austria to take in the beauty of the mountains. The green Alps and blue skies are a spectacular backdrop for a simple but refined lifestyle. An all day hike is rewarded by the return to soft pine floors, fine linens and a glass of crisp Austrian Riesling. This magical lifestyle and beautiful surroundings inspired this new collection, Chalet.” – Barbara Barry
