For fabric lovers who don’t have access to the showrooms at the Merchandise Mart, life just got a little brighter. Calico Corners
has added 1,700 new patterns and styles by Robert Allen
(the more modern-leaning designs that Robert Allen produces for DwellStudio
, shown at right, are also in the mix as of this past spring). “The fabric books are organized by color making it easy to design an entire room,” says Calico’s press release. Not that we want to get too matchy-matchy.
