I have been following Lauren’s blog, Pure Style Home, and first read about her fabric line launch back when Lauren was discussing her DC Design House progress and had introduced one of the patterns in the line called “Happikat.” Through Pure Style Home, we’ve gotten bits and pieces — glimpses of some of the different patterns in the collection — but I wanted to see, touch and feel the fabric in person.
Immediately, I was drawn to 3 patterns: Filigree Chevron, Circtangles and Happikat
Everyone loves a chevron pattern, and this design is a fresh take with the leaf pattern within the chevron stripe. Coupled with the linen fabric, it feels clean and natural.

An assortment of Circtangles and one in Squircles (far left, in Black and Cream) are modern and traditional at the same time.
Happikat in Navy/Pink (left) was my favorite colorway in this pattern.
The Lauren Liess Textiles collection will include a total of 55 fabrics in 14 patterns. All of the fabrics will be available in a cotton linen and several of them are washable. This photo (below) of “Live Paisley” in a gorgeous teal/turquoise color shows how beautifully the fabric washes.
The full collection of Lauren Liess Textiles will be available at the online Shop at Pure Stye Home in a couple of weeks, so keep checking in with Lauren over there (or @LaurenLiess on Twitter).
The Design Center of Northern Virginia is a To the Trade showroom only. I had never been there before, only to the Washington Design Center, where I spent my college summers tagging along with my mom. Elise, at the Design Center of Northern Virginia, has a great eye and has found some unique pieces for the showroom during her High Point, NC trips. Here’s a look at some of the things I loved (aside from the LL Textiles):
