Jack Lenor Larsen (b.1927) studied architecture at the University of Washington where his interest in textiles was piqued when students were required to practice weaving in an effort to learn more about textiles. In an Elle Décor article from 2011 Larsen notes that that he ‘melded weaving and architecture and got something new.’ So began a fêted career in textile design. Larsen’s revolutionary approach to colour, pattern, and texture, inspired by modernist architecture and textile traditions from around the world made his fabrics firm favourites with mid-century designers, working with Frank Lloyd Wright, Alexander Girard, and Florence Knoll. Larsen's designs are held in a number of international museums and he has been honoured with an exhibition in the Palais du Louvre. In 1997 Larsen sold his company to Colefax and Fowler who continue to honour his approach to textile design with their contemporary offerings.The large pattern repeat for the Sunset design in Poppy Gold ensures every cushion panel in this fabric is its own unique work of art! A perfect companion to the Pierre Frey cushion, with a graphic pattern of squares delineated in a complimentary colour palette.
