A reader asked the name of the fabric that Katie Ridder used on the back of the chairs above. It’s called New Wave by Old World Weavers and the color is Capri (AB 0003 6512). It’s available from Stark in New York but was out of stock today when I stopped by with my friend Eddie Ross. I was told that it’s very popular and this is evident by the fact that Steven Gambrel also used it for the draperies in his new townhouse, below. It’s a very beautiful fabric and I look forward to using it someday too. But first I have to wait for my sample to arrive!
