Large stripe pattern - Haversham: Comes in 21 colors.
Solid pattern - Chilton: Comes in 22 colors.

Lilly Pulitzer Home Collection

The story of Lilly Pulitzer as told by Lee Jofa:

Once upon a time, at the young age of 21, an enterprising New York socialite eloped with publishing mogul and citrus heir Peter Pulitzer. The couple left New York and embarked on a glamorous and colorful life in Palm Beach. Lilly opened a simple juice stand in 1959 and transformed her citrus stained clothing into a line of brightly colored shift dresses in an array of cheery prints. Her designs became the unofficial uniform of America's resort towns. Fifty years later these prints and colors continue to inspire and are now available through Lee Jofa fabrics for your home. Delicious!

Examples of some of these beautiful new designs!

Hartmann and Forbes hand crafts natural window coverings that mix effortlessly into the interiors of today. Get rid of the "white blind" syndrome and install a textured woven shade that will enhance your decor, not take away from the overall design. Below are two examples from the Liniedge Collection that can be custom woven to sizes even up to 158" wide.

This collection is available in 37 weaves in all sustainable fibers. Darker shades look great without drapes too.

A lighter shade color can really enhance the fabric drapes.
