Hunter Douglas has expanded its portfolio of fabrics to include exclusive collections from two esteemed artists: San Francisco-based textile designer Seema Krish and New York City-based visual artist Marcie Bronkar. The Design Studio Featured Artist series provides thoughtfully designed textiles that can be used across a variety of shading projects to complement the connected home.
As the worlds of home technology and interior design continue to merge, Hunter Douglas is paving the way with a portfolio of products that offers the design aesthetic homeowners and designers are looking for, while also offering the convenience and interoperability that automated shading provides. As integrators continue to tackle the learning curve presented by the design-forward automated shade category, the customization options of the Hunter Douglas portfolio invite homeowners, integrators, and designers to synergize and find the perfect solution – without compromising on style or functionality.
The new Design Studio collections complement and coordinate with the Design Studio Core Fabric Line and the entire assortment of Hunter Douglas window treatments. Both Seema Krish and Marcie Bronkar’s collections are fully customizable and offered with a variety of operating systems, including PowerView Automation hardware.
Meet the Designers
Seema Krish: With a deep love of travel, Seema Krish’s Artisanal Craftsmanship collection of seven fabrics borrow from the vibrant cultures and scenic beauty encountered in her journeys around the world. Rooted in heirloom hand-craft techniques together with modern processes, her designs are infused with vivid colors and striking dimensional beauty that delight the senses and make a bold style statement. “I have been fortunate to experience many places around the world, and I find it’s always the light that inspires me,” says Krish of her collection.
Marcie Bronkar: Marcie Bronkar draws inspiration from historical period artwork and objects, reinterpreting them with a modern twist that forms the basis of her seven fabrics. Her collection features highly stylized patterns and nuanced colorways that pay homage to their historical roots while beautifully integrating with today’s more contemporary traditional décor. “I feel a responsibility to interpret historical design in a modern way, so it can live in a modern home,” says Bronkar.
