Yes, we are dedicating an entire blog post to one fabric, because it is just that special! Heather Smith just got this beauty in straight from Paris for a local client. "The entire room is going to be designed around this fabric," Heather stated. It is a hand made gauffrage fabric, which is just a fancy word which means to emboss. In other words, this fabric was embossed over a plain textile with a hot pressure cylinder, which melts the pattern onto the textile. This technique is mainly used with velvets. So first they hand paint the gilt, and then press it to make it permanent. Now-you can add this new word to your design dictionary!
We can't wait to see how Heather uses this throughout the client's dining room. Do not worry- pictures will be up to follow!
