How to Clean Drapes and Curtains

*”I wish to thank you for your patience and great service with cleaning our drapes while we were remodeling our house. Due to unforeseen problems our renovations stretched much longer than anticipated. You held our fabrics in storage without a complaint and were very gracious when I notified you of each reschedule and delay. John even promised to help with the rehanging of the curtains when my new sheers come in to ensure a proper hanging height. I would not have protested you charging for storage for the amount of time you had my drapes. You took some of the stress away from the experience of remodeling. Yours was then best experience of the time.” – Ed Page

Best Bookshelf

In creating the Story Bookcase (2017), they brought a new twist to Sapien-style vertical book storage by allowing the user to position the shelves facing forward or to the side. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, Story holds dozens of books in a very compact footprint. “We hope people see it as a quiet, functional sculpture,” says Hung-Ming. All-metal construction and a heavy weighted base provide strength and stability.

Lamps

A graduate of ENSCI-Les Ateliers in Paris, designer Inga Sempé started her own studio in 2000. She’s since partnered with several renowned firms, including Alessi, Hay, Luceplan and others. Sempé was always impressed by the clever clamp lamps of her childhood, readily available in local hardware stores. These very lamps inspired her Sempé w153 ile Clamp Lamp (2015), which indeed proves that simple can also be sophisticated, consisting of a clamp base with a light source that shines upward into a diffuser mounted on a magnetic ball joint for quick and precise positioning.

Robert Allen Showroom

Alfresco Elegance

From the living room by Robert Frank to this loggia by Ederra Design Studio, the Pasadena Showcase House of Design was full of Robert Allen and Beacon Hill fabrics. For their concept, “Cocktails at Five,” designers Cynthia Lambakis and Samantha Williams used indoor/outdoor patterns in navy and turquoise hues from our new Wanderlust and Cloudscape collections.

“We wanted the fabrics to be sophisticated… blurring the lines between the interior and exterior spaces.”

Sheers enhanced the “living room” feel and framed the view for a happy hour setting as dreamy as the movie La La Land—which you may recognize the loggia from.
