Bethesda interior designer Marika Meyer has channeled her fine arts background and love for antiquities into an eponymous brand of custom textiles that are modern interpretations of the past.
Meyer drew inspiration from ancient cities to create patterns such as Roman Fig, a play on a Roman temple pediment, and Pompeii, which pays homage to wall paintings in Herculaneum ruins. “For some designs, I have a specific client in mind, while others are part of a universal collection,” she says. “Fabrics evoke an emotion. In our printing format, the patterns can all be custom-colored, which drastically changes that mood.”
