Barry Dixon for Vervain, a new collection of fabric and trim, transcends place and time. Known for his elegantly tailored furniture designs, Warrenton, Virginia-based Dixon (right), took inspiration for his fabric line from a childhood spent living around the globe. Every item interprets an image or object associated with a specific location. Pictured above, Papillion (drapery) was inspired by a piece of Dixon’s grandmother’s transferware. And on the chair, Grenada fabric is a riff on a document Dixon collected in Morocco; it’s embellished with Voyage trim. With 300 combinations of patterns and colorways, the line presents designers with infinite opportunities to pay homage to the past while remaining very much in the present.
