Tobi Fairley on Barclay Butera: Day 4

Thanks to Tobi Fairley for the fourth in her week-long series of posts on Barclay Butera!!

Barclay Butera and Kravet

Barclay Butera is known for his signature blue looks. Clean,classic, traditional and timeless, Barclay’s blue rooms often layer florals, geometrics and stripes in the perfect combination.
So it is only fitting that Barclay’s new fabric collection for Kravet has a plethora of blues including Ikats, stripes and more.

And though I love Barclay’s new blues, there is so much more to the collection. In fact, Barclay’s approach to his fabric line is not unlike his book or even his interiors. Like the chapters in his book Living in Style, Barclay uses the categories of Beach, Town and Country, Mountain, Desert, and City to distinguish between colorways of his collection.

So the cool blues and rich navy’s are representative of the beach.

Chic and sophisticated neutrals are the hallmark of the Town and Country category.

The desert collection includes dusty tones. Both the Mountain and City looks have rich colors and textures and even a few novelty prints.
To see more of the Barclay Butera fabric collection, visit the Kravet website. And to see Barclay’s beautiful versions of Beach, City, and Mountain interiors, check out his book, Living in Style.
