Newark, NJ – Creative use of texture, tonal effects, and metallic finishes offer a wide variety of looks in Thibaut’s new “Stripe Resource Volume 4” collection. Designs range from classic to contemporary, from soft and subtle to bold and elegant. Their stylish, tailored appearance is ideal for either casual or formal settings.
“Savoy Stripe,” with broad, feathery vines, climbs upward to create wide, textural bands of color. This is a versatile design that adapts to its surroundings—in one instance it can yield a sweet cottage feel, and in another make a more elegant, formal statement. Another notable design, “Derby Stripe,” incorporates thin metallic lines that complement a delicate strie pattern radiating graceful variations of color.
“Veranda Stripe,” with a more contemporary look, features a worn, woven texture over wide bars of color. The bars are softened at the edges and embellished with an organic-looking vine. A modern look is also captured in “Metro Stripe,” with its wide-set stripes and subdued color palette.
The collection contains a “Marquis Strie” pattern that comes in a spectrum of 17 soft, vibrant, and neutral colors; and a variety of classic wide stripe patterns like “Piedmont Stripe,” “Manhattan Stripe,” which sports an “updated” look with heavy, woven texture; and “Leopard Stripe,” enlivened with an exotic animal-print overlay. “Weatherstone Stripe,” another textural design, features a stylized fleur de lis pattern over a linen-like ground.
This is the fourth edition of Thibaut’s popular “Stripe Resource” collection, with Thibaut stripe designs being favorites among many designers. The fresh, new looks liven up plain, ordinary walls, and coordinate readily with the design schemes of other fabrics and wallpapers in the home. Metallic accents in some of the patterns add a flattering touch. “Stripe Resource Vol. 4” and other Thibaut collections are available through interior designers and fine decorating stores worldwide.
