Sometimes great things happen when you least expect them. Last year, we went to a major hospitality trade event in Las Vegas called HD Expo and were drawn to a mass of colorful storyboards in the lobby. Stacy Garcia, a well-known hospitality designer, was there talking about where she thought design was headed for 2017 and beyond. We were captivated by her playful geometrics, subtle metallics, and art inspired design, all accented by her “color crush” – in this case, a neutral pallet with inviting blues and purples. It was inspiring to see how she paired design with nature and technology trends. We loved it, and were pleasantly surprised to find out that Stacy was based near New York City, just a short trip from our studio and warehouse.
By chance, about an hour later we bumped into Stacy at a Moscow Mule reception (we can’t help but be drawn to a good copper mug!) She was immediately receptive to conversations about how our throws would be a perfect canvas for her designs, which can be found in hotel decor like flooring, wallpaper and upholstery fabric. Our meeting led to a year of spirited color and pattern discussions from which we developed a new collection of eco designer throws for both the hospitality community and boutique retailers.
Here are some examples showing patterns featured in the collection and how they have been inspired by other projects that Stacy has been involved in:
A sophisticated nod to mod, the eco Illusion throw satisfies the minimalist aesthetic acting as a modern and updated Greek key pattern. The eco friendly throw was modeled after designer Stacy Garcia’s popular pattern on commercial carpet and upholstery fabric. Available in 3 colorways, recycled cotton/polyester blend. shop now
Here we reimagine a timeless Stacy Garcia | New York residential wallpaper to create Retro, a punchy and playful twist on a traditional stripe. Exaggerated scale and continuous movement help make this pattern a cheerful way to add a layer of texture and color to your home. Available in 3 colorways, recycled cotton/polyester blend. shop now
With influences drawn from an era of refined luxury and embellishment, the Trellis eco throw highlights the symmetry and industrial angles seen within the period of the 1920’s. A favorite pattern in both Stacy Garcia’s commercial collection of wallpaper and carpet, this design is a contemporary take on an iconic style. Available in 3 colorways, recycled cotton/polyester blend. shop now
Stacy’s signature graphics and new textures will be found in a large 60”x60” square size. Each throw is domestically knit with a soft sweater-like feel, using recycled cotton and polyester eco yarns.
More on Stacy Garcia | New York:
According to Stacy, “Designing for the luxury residential market was a natural progression for our brand. With years of experience creating designs for hotels and resorts all over the world, we started seeing an increase in consumers eager for the look we had made available to the commercial design trade. That’s when Stacy Garcia | New York was born.”
The Stacy Garcia | New York collection is a strong reflection of Stacy’s own style and the patterns she brings into her own home. Stacy likes to say that this collaboration with in2green features “finely crafted products with an eclectic, well-traveled, high art appeal.” Subscribe here for Stacy’s design publication.
