…we thought we’d get in on the floral fun and share some of our designers’ favorite floral patterns for interior design! For this week’s Inside The Orange Box, our designers choose their favorite floral fabric or wallpaper and tell us what it is about that pattern that they love…

Let’s see what they’ve picked!

– Lead Designer Lisa Palmer –

“This Zimmer + Rhode floral would be beautiful as a tailored skirt under a honed marble top as an entry table that had some height so you could see the large scale of the pattern. Finish the top of the skirt with a beautiful flat braid. Gorgeous!”

“I love how bright and cheerful this Stark pattern is. It makes me happy, and I like how the pattern is not a cliche floral.”

“I love this wall paper from Winfield Thybony! The Iris pattern is expressive and effective, without overpowering. An iris symbolizes eloquence, which shows up in the pattern of this wall covering.”

“I like that this Groundworks pattern is floral, but a very subtle floral. It looks like it’s painted!”

I’m loving this rich Dessin Fournir silk velvet right now!! It has such depth to the color, and the “leaf” design is perfectly abstract. I know it’s going to look fabulous on my client’s dining chairs in the Agate color way! We are doing all of the chairs using different parts of the repeat to further enhance the “natural randomness” of the pattern. When the same “leaf ” is in the exact same spot on five chairs, that makes the pattern loose something for me… it feels too structured. I love it’s free, all-over form and want to embrace that quality.”

“This pretty Galbraith & Paul pattern is all done by hand and made to order. I love this line because it’s so customizable. You can even get their fabric patterns done in wallpaper!”

“Generally speaking, to quote quote Austin Powers, floral is not my bag, baby. However, when I do floral, I want to do it in a large scale in a linen fabric that does not overpower the space. When it comes to floral, I’m going to do a two color, big-scale pattern like this Mary McDonald pattern for Schumacher. This room in particular called for this type of floral. I want my florals to be a soft backdrop. The larger the scale, the better a floral looks.”
