The Robert Allen Group's collaboration with DwellStudio has expanded yet again, this time with the Decorative Modern collection, an exciting new set of print and woven fabrics. These dynamic designs draw inspiration from the classic and iconic style legacy of New York City, with nods to art deco, disco glamour, and cosmopolitan style. Decorative Modern displays a cultured and contemporary look, infused with a worldly influence that adds a well-traveled appearance to the bold designs. The collection eschews the conventional rules of decorating, with a clever intuition for effortless layering and unexpected combinations that reveal an innate sense of style.
DwellStudio Founder Christiane Lemieux notes, "We are thrilled with Decorative Modern. The colors, textures and signature prints came together beautifully to create something modern, timeless and at the same time fashion forward. It is this juxtaposition of opposing ideas that makes the collection original and signature to DwellStudio."
The softly saturated color palette of Decorative Modern lends a warm and sophisticated touch to the line. While clean neutrals like Brindle, Dove, and Zinc ground the collection, bold hues such as spicy Persimmon and icy Aquatint highlight the lines contemporary notes. The designs, too, implement a range of both the simple and the extravagant. As always, DwellStudios signature animal patterns are abundant, including an oversized dragon (Ming Dragon) and a tapestry-like litter of forest creatures (Folkland), balanced by bold geometrics (Futura) and reimagined plaids (Unravel). Soft coordinates punctuate the collection further, with easy patterns like a subtle snakeskin (Renegade) and a crosshatched linen (Regency Linen) that encourage the layered look of Decorative Modern.
