Barbara is one of my all time favorite designers. She is so elegant in person. Her grace and poise are reflected in her fabrics, furniture, rugs, sheets, and china collections. Her passion and enthusiasm for her work is infectious!
I took a picture of her cute shoes - love the clear heel!
Here I am with Barbara and Faith Sheridan from Portland. I told her all about meeting her 10 years ago in DC! She was polite enough to say she remembered.
Her new tea Citrine was being served to us during our time at the Kravet showroom. It was a combination of lemongrass, chamomile, verveine, and peppermint. Yummy!
Here it is loose in a bowl on the table.
Her new line for Kravet was inspired by her trip to China. She had wonderful slides to share. She created many of her fabric designs right from photographs or sketches she made during this trip. She told us how she gathered small trinkets and brought them home to make small collections that inspired her color palate. She's not crazy about red - rust yes but not red.
This was one of the fretwork designs that I loved.
This video is the presentation she made to us. I love her voice so sophisticated and elegant. I hope it is not another 10 years before I meet her again.
