all things la fiorentina!

A lot of people have asked me about the fabric on my ottoman.  It’s La Fiorentina by David Hicks for Lee Jofa in the Ivory/Camel colorwave.

My Ottoman
I love this tan/white combination.  The geometric pattern gives you a a strong graphic element, but the colors keep it neutral.  If you like mixing patterns and colors, but are a little nervous about doing it, this is the fabric for you It’s easy, I promise, and you can still maintain a clean aesthetic.
I’ve been thinking about putting a tan cowhide under my ottoman.  Looks like I’m not the first person who has done this!
Here it is in one of my favorite living rooms by Angie Hranowsky.  Looks great with that fabulous marble fireplace, and accents of purple and yellow.  See how it pairs so easily with a graphic rug and a large scale suzani (other seat cushion)?
I also love it as curtains.  I like how the pattern changes with the pleats. Is it geometric, is it abstract?  Who cares, its fabbbbulous, darling.
It wasn’t right for my home, but my favorite colorwave of La Fiorentina is Wine/Magenta.  I’m using it in an upcoming project, though!
Looks great on this sofa!

Another fun, colorful option is Coral.  I adore this pillow…

As I am a lover of Gray, I also have a soft spot for the gray colorwave.  The gray/tan combo is subtle and soothing.  I love how Ashley Hicks used this fabric as a canopy for a bed!!  And the bedskirt.  It’s official:  I need a patterned bedskirt.

And while it is not my favorites, the brown/white and black/white colors are perennial stars.

    I’m hooked, I’m hooked! I’ve been at the fabric store all morning longsink your timing couldn’t be more perfect. I want to reupholster EVERYTHING. Your ottoman is gorgeous and the moment I first saw it I immediately thought of the Ruthie Sommers sofa cover. I love that magenta.

  3. I think I need it in gray. NEED. But seems like it’s not accessible to me.. :( I can dream, though…

  4. Oh yes, yes yes yes.

  5. I really like your blog, beautiful pictures!
