Market: Soft Return
It’s been a decade since HBF Textiles vice president of design and development Mary Jo Miller discovered Christiane Müller, who was working in-house at a Dutch textile mill. Their encounter spawned a lucrative six-piece collection. The two now reveal the next chapter of their collaboration. Blurring the contract-residential divide, the seven introductions flaunt tactility and detailing inspired by art and architecture, the latter expressed in Honest Square. To achieve optimal volume, the polyester-cotton blend is embroidered and then stitched to foam backing, resulting in a cushiony grid that also helps improve acoustics. In seven colors.
