Robert Allen and DwellStudio team up for bold new line
UpholsteryJournalMag.com | October 1, 2012
Robert Allen and DwellStudio have joined creative forces, pairing Robert Allen’s textile expertise and color leadership with DwellStudio’s tastemaking eye for the introduction of Modern Color Theory, a collaboration of unique prints and standout wovens.
For its patterns, Modern Color Theory draws on an arts and crafts feel taken from early abstract art, with an emphasis on intentional imperfection. Geometric lines appear to have an almost hand-drawn quality, and painterly florals blur and overlap one another like a cut-paper collage. Yet, the collection remains true to the signature DwellStudio style, featuring oversized geometrics (Coco); conversational animal motifs (Caravan and Kings Walk); and whimsical stripes (High Wire). The colors are full of attitude in richly saturated shades such as Malachite, a lush full green; Citrine, a shockingly chic bright yellow often paired with a sophisticated gray; and Ultramarine, a deep hue of ocean blue.
The Robert Allen Design Group is one of the world’s largest designers and producers of decorative fabrics for the interior design trade and is recognized as a brand leader in its field.
DwellStudio is the design house for modern home and family furnishings. With find excitement in the unexpected. DwellStudio is known for its contrasting styles, and the studio’s philosophy is simple: take classic elements and twist them into a modern setting, knowing that clean lines and sophisticated color always make an interesting story.
