We are thrilled to debut our partnership with acclaimed designer, Christiane Lemiuex and our new "Material Archive" Collection.
Following the launch of her new home brand, Lemieux Et Cie, Christiane is set to return to High Point to celebrate the release of this incredible collection.
The 83-sku collection brings to the forefront her love of design history and the artistic process. "For this archive, I pulled inspiration from my personal collection of textile fragments, a library I have been building over a lifetime," says Christiane Lemieux. "But this archive isn't just a celebration of print, it is a celebration of process."
Each fabric evolved from a series of hand-drawn sketches, illustrations and color explorations - just as it was done for hundreds of years. "People didn't have Adobe back then," she explains. "Textile design was an art based endeavor, and I want to put that creative energy back into our process."
“Christiane’s design process is informed by a deep understanding of design history, as well as an informed and intuitive grasp of what feels right for today. This combination is the power behind the collection,” says Hannah Harvey, Richloom’s Creative Director.
“It is both personal and relatable. The ambitious mix of influences and styles felt effortless as it came together in such expert hands.”
