Interior designer Marika Meyer displays her fabric creations.

The pastel hues of throw pillows beautifully complement a piece of abstract art, also created by Meyer.

A cheerful vignette highlights Meyer's Dove Stripe, Roman Fig, Laurel Leaf and San Michele motifs.

A love for antiquities inspired Marika Meyer's textile collection.

Art History

Markia Meyer's custom textiles

Art HistoryBethesda 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.”

Marika Meyer Textiles are available through Evans & Sheldon by appointment. marikameyertextiles.com; evansandsheldon.com
