Last May I met Martyn Lawrence Bullard at the Boston Design Center, where he was promoting his new fabric line for Schumacher (I blogged about it here.) In addition to another fabric collection for Schumacher, he has a new tile collection for Ann Sacks. Swatches from both collections, below.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard’s latest collection for F. Schumacher & Co.
I’ve emailed several times with Mary and interviewed Martyn on the phone for stories. Both graciously insisted they remembered me. (Doubtful, but nice of them to say!) Mary said she knows my blog; that she recalls its cute and clever name. We are FB friends, so I suppose it’s possible. As I said, they were utterly charming. Must be hard to have to be so *on* with so many strangers at so many events.
I snapped a bunch of Instagram pics of the fabrics for you. I have more from MLB’s line than MM’s line because my iPhone/Instagram went on the fritz, likely from overuse. Ok, now here are the Schumacher Designer Collaborations.

For a while I had been noticing gray sofas galore, but lately its been blue velvet sofas that have been standing out. Elegant but still cozy, they work in a variety of rooms, and seem just the touch of richness needed for this chilly winter week. There are some old favorites in here that I felt like I had to include (Frank Roop, Mary McDonald), but also plenty of new finds. Tomorrow we’ll take a shopping trip on the Interwebs to find blue velvet seating of our own.
