Last week I attended an inspirational lecture by Eric Cohler in the Lee Joffa showroom as part of San Francisco Design Week. Eric Cohler is a talented interior designer who also happens to design lighting, fabrics and furnishings.
Here are a group of fabrics I've put together based on several of Eric Cohler's Lodge Collection. Three of these fabrics are his.
My inspiration for this grouping is Eric Cohler's Sundance Tapestry in Dusk ($268 per yard). I think these subtles colorations with browns, camels, aqua and natural linens are absolutely lovely. Native American and ethnic prints work beautifully in mountain cabins and lodges. This fabric would be perfect to upholster some living room lounge chairs in and it would also make wonderful toss pillows.
Again, these colorations are fresh and beautiful. I'd use this elegant linen for toss pillows in a living room. It would also make great curtains or bedding in a bedroom. This is Eric Cohler's Giovanni Pais in Sable.
I absolutely loooove this fabric! This is Eric Cohler's Wood Print in Brown. It's absolutely perfect for living room curtains with the grouping above. By the way, if you like this pattern, it also comes in wallpaper which is fabulous for just about any mountain room, but especially for an entry or powder room.
This is Big House's Pinehurst ($104 per yard) and I've tossed it into the mix for a little whimsey. This fabric is sturdy enough to use for upholstery, but I also like it for toss pillows. I'd trim them in a little brown leather woven braid from Garret Leather that I like to use on pillows in mountain houses.
Finally, I've added this lovely wool and linen weave from Classic Cloth called Rothsay in Lichen. This is a wonderful upholstery fabric and so practical for mountain living. Kids, dirt, dogs...this handsome fabric is already the color of their mess, and yet, it's beautiful.
You may have noticed that I also added a chocolate brown leather in my initial grouping. Leather is just so practical for mountain houses and I find that many of my clients ask for it.
Eric Cohler's fabrics are available through Lee Joffa. Of course, as always, you can call me if you would like to place an order for any of these fabrics or most anything else you see on any of my blog postings. (530 583-6076 X104).
