This 16-Piece Residential Window-Treatment Line Packs a Punch

Multidisciplinary designer Inga Sempé finds inspiration by walking through her Parisian neighborhood, homing in on seemingly humdrum moments that, upon closer inspection, reveal possibilities for intrigue. “I look for variations in walls or windows—tiny changes that turn what looks normal into something lively,” she explains. “I try to insert these subtle shifts into the most classical patterns and weavings.”

Sempé partnered with the Danish textile giant Kvadrat’s in-house creative director, Isa Glink, to bring that mindset to bear on Multiply, a 16-piece residential window-treatment line. The gauzy, geometric designs are both ethereal and punchy. Take Fil-à-Fil, a blend of linen, lyocell, and recycled silk integrating classic herringbone construction and artisanal forms, in four organic colorways, including emerald. Following suit is Fil, a subdued broken twill with a smattering of microscopic recycled-silk dots in eight classic colors, and multidimensional Mash, a jacquard with wispy, space-dyed yarns woven into a watery moiré that dances when draped.
