New York School of Interior Design: Sourcing Historic Textiles and Wallcoverings

NYSID_Fall_2016 (8 of 14)

Scalamandre fabrics installed in the important Red, Blue and Green rooms at the White House in Washington, D.C. are just a small part of the fun course taught this past week by Marina for the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID). Students also had the opportunity to pour over and feel the plush thick woven fabrics made on a jacquard loom from Pierre Frey and review the new release of Arts and Crafts William Morris wallpapers by Sanderson. Those registered for the course are able to view a variety of archived fabrics and learn about the craftsmanship, design and marketing that goes into the creation of textiles and wallpapers—including the new process of digital printing and the older techniques of screened printing and wood block.

For the past several years, the NYSID has collaborated with our very own Marina Case of The Red Shutters to provide first hand access to her course called, Insider’s Guide: Sourcing Historic Textiles and Wallcoverings which tours New York City’s Design and Decoration Building (DDB)—a site normally only open exclusively to-the-trade. Representing over 3,000 leading manufacturers, the DDB known nationally and internationally as the world’s most important home to over 130 showrooms and stands as an invaluable resource for anyone who appreciates and has a passion for design.

Thank you so much for the fantastic lecture and the fun afternoon. As hurried and tired I was when I arrived, the more and more enthusiastic I became as we went from showroom to showroom to sample the most incredible textile collections the D&D has to offer. I am very grateful for this opportunity learn more about historic textiles, this was the perfect accompaniment to the Textiles class I had, that mostly dealt with technical terms and knowledge.
