The fusion of technology and fashion-forward, painterly effects come together in new collections from Romo’s Black Edition and Phillip Jeffries. The two lines are making their mark in this impressionistic style and doing so by way of innovative, digital printing. Their approach, which offers a modern take on traditional motifs, ranges from watery, inky florals and stripes to patterns captured in bold, impulsive brushstrokes. As if emerging from a dream, the designs bring a sense of harmony and serenity to walls, upholstery and windows, in addition to a unique in-stock, ready-to-ship collection of pillows offered at a surprising price point.
Artistry meets innovation in Phillip Jeffries‘ Bloom, a collection capturing the details of watercolored blossoms in two unique scales and seven subdued colors. India Ink can be seen above and Fuchsia below.
According to Phillip Jeffries, the use of digital printing has allowed for the layering of multiple tones and an unrivaled depth and dimension. Both Bloom and its digitally printed counterpart Fade (below), a statement-making paper inspired by a watercolor mural, are printed on natural grounds.
This season we’ve seen fashion-forward designs from Romo’s Black Edition digitally printed on velvets, silks and linens. Their Kansai fabrics and wallcoverings give the impression of being “immersed beneath a soft flow of rippling water.”
As mentioned above, Black Edition offers a unique collection of in-stock pillows featuring paintings from contemporary British artist Jessica Zoob. There are nineteen designs in all and each includes the pillow cover and down insert.

For the textile and wallcovering obsessed (guilty as charged), the presentation of a new collection brings with it the thrill of seeing what’s new and what’s next in color, pattern, construction and fiber. Last week, Cowtan & Tout Design Director, Catherine Cronner, presented the Fall 2015 collection in person to our St. Louis staff a select few design firms. As you can imagine, to hear from the source how each design came to be, made for a memorable event.
Catherine began by reiterating the brand’s unique position within the industry and within the Cowtan family of textile lines. She explained how each, Colefax and Fowler, Jane Churchill, Larsen and Manuel Canovas complement one another, Cowtan & Tout being a line of decorative fabrics designed specifically for showrooms. It represents a distinctly American point of view and is not presented as booked collections, rather hung on boards or as three yard lengths.
She explained, “Not booking the collection gives us latitude from an inspiration point of view. We’re constantly looking at the entire collection and addressing what needs refreshing or phasing out—it’s a much more organic approach.”
Catherine noted a big commitment to velvet with this season, explaining that she’s developed transitional designs using Old World techniques. As you scroll through our photos from the presentation and the images provided by Cowtan & Tout, watch for not only epinglé velvet, but documentary inspired prints, burnout sheers, intricate embroideries and appliqués.
Tibetiana is an embroidered design inspired by Chinese carvings seen at The Metropolitan
Museum of Art.
Jagger is a viscose epinglé with a gorgeous strié yarn-dyed ground.
Vermeer, seen at the back, is 100% linen and represents a merging of Eastern and European influences. Also seen here, the Jagger epinglé, the Milano velvet from 2014 (sofa) and the Javan and Arezzo wovens.
