I think we got the same memo – sensational gray.

Eskayel is an innovative Brooklyn, NY based design studio founded by artist and designer Shanan Campanaro. Along with her partner Nick Chacona, Shanan designs print-to-order fabrics and wallcoverings. In addition to their hundreds of colorways and patterns, Eskayel can provide custom designs or adjust one of their patterns to suit your needs. They have a strong focus on sustainability, using eco-friendly materials and practices. Eskayel is a fabulous textile company.
What I find interesting about Eskayel is that they have put a twist on the traditional, like a modern form of tie-dye. It’s very fresh and versatile — the fabric can be applied to anything from pillows to poufs. Eskayel also produces wallcoverings. I love that one pattern can be generated into so many things. You can use this as an accent or an all-over application.
I’m working on a project for a client’s Montana home and am using an Eskayel pattern to cover an accent wall in a bunk room. I’m so excited to use this product in an environment that is expected to be rustic — the scale is so big and blown up. Eskayel also offers more traditional styles for safer, less risky options.
Now that spring has finally arrived, I find myself really drawn to fresh, new styles.
Now that spring has finally arrived, I find myself really drawn to fresh, new styles. My energy is focused on finding inspiring things no one else has, like fabrics that are totally not common styles from typical vendors. Bespoke items that no one will walk into a room, look at, and say, “I have that same fabric on my pillows,” is the kind of look I love.
Choosing fabric is an integral part of what I do as a designer. Window treatments, pillows, and upholstery are essential elements of a space, providing opportunities to add color and texture. Fabrics let us explore creativity and embellish with unique details.
When choosing fabric, it is very important to be mindful of lifestyle when selecting fabrics. Homes with children and pets should have fabric that is more durable and easy to clean. Making wise choices is essential. You wouldn’t want something delicate on a sofa, for example. Having a source of versatile fabrics allows even the busiest, most active homes to enjoy beautiful fabrics in many different applications.

Maharam Fabrics began as a theatrical textile production company and evolved through the decades to become a source of high quality fabrics. Maharam makes a good choice for both commercial and residential areas. The product is thoughtful of use and doesn’t look contracted.
I am a huge fan of Maharam’s wool fabrics, especially the wool with embroidery. When I design, I go for quality over quantity, and Maharam exhibits superb quality. The fabric has a great weight, with quiet and simple designs that aren’t too heavy or traditional. I love the palette and stitching. It’s really well executed.
The durability of Maharam’s wool products make it a good option for families with kids. The solids are available in every spectrum of the rainbow. In addition to being user-friendly and practically indestructible, Maharam fabrics are reliably in stock, making it a fantastic go-to product.
Maharam also produces these digital projects for large-scale wall installations. Something like this takes just the right client, but I can’t wait to use this giraffe print! It’s so unique, charming, and sweet!
