Full of worldly charm, the sophisticated–yet unpretentious–designs of the newest collection from Madcap Cottage have arrived. Teaming up with Robert Allen Fabrics, designers John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon traveled the world for inspiration and style trends to influence their latest designs in “A Collector’s Eye.” Known for their whimsical style statements and fun-filled color schemes, their collaboration brought us last year’s “Into the Garden,” which captured the tranquility of summertime relaxation, garden florals and countryside designs. “A Collector’s Eye” captivates with alluring designs that speak of distant cultures, featuring a medley of fabrics with unlimited potential for your home decor.
World travel influences the designs in this culturally significant fabric from Madcap Cottage. Set against the backdrop of the Indian desert, the city of Jodhpur features Indian culture, palaces and beautiful sunshine. Nicknamed the “Blue City” due to many of the homes painted in shades of blue, we can see layers of color throughout the fabrics in this globally chic pattern, shown here in Ocean.
Reminiscent of the rich interiors of New York City’s Colony Club, this turn of the century fabric offers a feeling of prestigious design in intense colors. The vintage look of this fabric–available in contemporary shades–is the perfect blend of the past-meets-present callout of this collection, shown here in Strawberry.
Road to Canton
There’s no better way to showcase cultural design than with the imitation of Chinese motifs through Chinoisserie. Depicting storytelling and life from centuries ago, these patterns are full of historical nostalgia. The animals and floral life of Canton Island in the South Pacific are full of color in this lagoon-inspired artistic pattern, shown here in Marrakech Green.
It’s a Madcap Cottage World!
We are so excited to see what we can do with these fabrics! We love how the color schemes allow you to mix and match patterns for your own individual style. The best part about Madcap Cottage is that the designers don’t create their textiles to fit any one project. There’s no “boxing in” of this collection. They create from the imagination, influenced by the world around them–and across the globe. That means, what looks great as an accent pillow fabric and pattern to you might look fabulous as custom draperies in another home. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder with “A Collector’s Eye.”
