Lillian August decor fabrics are the newest designer collections, exclusively from Fabricut, and available through Patio Lane. Dramatic colors and rich, earth tones embody more than 100 smart, uptown upholstery, bedding, drapery and multipurpose fabrics. Drawing on 25 years of unparalleled success in textiles, Lillian August fabrics showcase a legacy of quality design, seamlessly moving from traditional patterns to contemporary scales and textures.
In developing her collections for everyday home use, Lillian applied her life-long devotion to textiles and married them with simple lines and deftly crafted colors. Maypole Harvest turns a humble wheat stalk into a powerful geometric structure laid upon fields of gold and tan silks. Maryknoll Berry is a perfectly feminine floral made from heavy duty, silk embroidery that mixes well with today’s modern wood and metal furniture finishes.
As a young busy mom with two boys, Lillian August began her interior design business selling one of a kind crafts and patchwork quilts. By the mid 1980's, Lillian had begun creating wall coverings and textiles which catapulted her popularity in and around New York City. One of the chic Lillian August Collections exclusive to Fabricut is the Townhouse Collection with two, stunning books that blend luxurious neutrals with bold colorful reds, purples, and golds. Dynamic combinations of chinoiserie, stripes and scrollwork create that slightly, over-the-top drama appreciated by trendy, city dwellers. Tea Ceremony is a large-scale, Euro-scenic design that is rich with drama, yet contract-strong and comes in 4 versatile colorways.
For Lillian, when you live in New York and you work with fabric, the runway is the one, never ending, and constantly inspiring parade of new and exciting texture and color. Celebrity designers become the “fabric” of daily life and have impacted many of Lillian’s finest textiles.
I look at all of the fashion designers because a lot of their couture design is about texture and color, so I study all of the collections…My challenge is to interpret colors, fabrics and designs that capture what is happening [now] in fashion..."
The delectable, cotton woven Barclay Scroll fabric imparts the same luxe appeal of a recent Alexander McQueen gown, but is softened to work for everyday upholstery. Bold stripes as seen on Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2015 fashions are powerfully played by Lillian August with Andover and Glendon stripes. Here, stunning, satiny silks are lined up in varying golds, greens, creams and blues that are decidedly soft and pliable.
