Included in the Paul Smith x Marharam collection are three instantly recognizable styles by Charles and Ray Eames, including the Eames Sofa Compact, which originated in the 1940s as a built-in design for the Eameses’ own Pacific Palisades home. The current freestanding version, which is perfectly scaled for small spaces but still comfortably seats three, has been in continuous production since 1954. Its sleek, rectilinear frame now provides an ideal canvas for Smith’s latest textile, Blended Stripe, an uninterrupted ombre that pairs light neutrals with cool shades of turquoise, cobalt and navy blue. A fusion of pattern and texture, Blended Stripe is woven in a dense cotton epinglé construction that’s notable for its fine loops, low pile, matte finish, and cool hand.
In collaboration since 2002, Paul Smith and Maharam have generated a vibrant range of textiles that translate traditional suiting concepts to interiors: reinterpreting quintessential apparel motifs like houndstooth, plaid, polka dots, and stripes through idiosyncratic combinations of colour. Now the two entities are partnering on an exclusive assortment of iconic pieces from the Herman Miller Collection that give new meaning to Smith’s “classics with a twist” approach. Launching at Herman Miller’s Tokyo flagship store on October 1 2020, an exhibit will showcase this concise selection of midcentury designs reimagined by Smith in alternately tailored, whimsical, and artful textiles.
