Posted by

This summer, I was thrilled to partner with Duralee for the Hampton Designer Showhouse! They have been one of my favorite vendors for years, but getting to work so closely with them was great. Their team was an absolute dream to work with – and now I am even more excited to announce that we’re going to continue that partnership with a new Duralee Designer: Tobi Fairley fabric collection! I am over the moon to be the next designer in Duralee’s amazing line up of Designer partners. My collection is set for debut at the wholesale Fabric Show, ITMA Showtime, in December 2015 in High Point, NC, and will be available to the Interior Design Trade in April of 2016. So that means by Spring of 2016, you can buy my fabrics from your favorite designers and manufacturers around the country.

We have been hard at work on my fabric designs since last summer, and the process has been fun and fabulous! I can’t wait for you to see the patterns and colors that we’ve come up with – but I can tell you that the fabrics will definitely fit my brand of Bright, Bold, and Tailored! The gorgeous fabrics I used for the Showhouse (shown above) are from Duralee’s Bailey and Griffin Collection. And you’ll be excited to know that my Duralee Designer: Tobi Fairley Collection will have equally large-scale fabulous prints and bold colors that are right in line with my Tobi Fairley style, perfect for your pillows and drapery. Plus there will be brightly-colored woven geometrics and florals that are hard-working and perfect for your upholstery!


As you know, I’ve been producing my own fabrics for a few years now. You can see those patterns above. But it is SUCH an amazing opportunity to move onto a national stage with a premier fabric company like Duralee. They really get what designers need and ultimately what consumers want in their interiors, and together we are going to produce fabrics that are fashion-forward and essential!

I’ve formed some terrific partnerships this year – including those with CR Laine and Soicher Marin. And you’ll be able to see those incredible collections at the upcoming April High Point Market. With Duralee added to that list, all three of these companies really fit my brand and my aesthetic. But they also are just terrifically great people to work with – and that’s what is really important to me and the people in my company. And look for at least one more company to join up with us for this fun ride in the near future and round out the great offerings I am bringing you for your home.

Thanks for coming along with us!










Big News and Which Would You Choose?

Posted by


Did you hear the exciting news? We announced yesterday that I have partnered with my favorite art company, Soicher Marin, to create a line of decorative framed art for the home. I am thrilled to be launching a 70-piece collection THIS April at High Point Market!

My collection with Soicher Marin will be shown in their showroom and featured in the CR Laine showroom with my brand new upholstery line for Spring. Things are definitely getting exciting around here, aren’t they?

So for today’s Which Would You Choose? I want to ask you this:

Do you prefer traditional-themed framed botanical artwork like this Soicher Marin grouping in my last dining room?

Or something contemporary like this pink and green abstract Soicher Marin piece that I used in my New York showhouse space?

Leave me a comment and let me know which you love and why. And the good news is that I am designing both traditional and more modern pieces for my Soicher Marin collection, so hopefully all of you will find something that you love!

Happy Hump Day!









An Inspiring Show and Partner

Posted by

Hi, everyone! I’m spending this weekend at the amazing High Point Market, the world’s largest home furnishings trade show located in North Carolina. And today is a busy day for me! I’m speaking with the editors of Southern Living and Coastal Living today about how designers can get their work published in shelter magazines, and then at 4pm I will be at a fabulous cocktail event with my new partner C.R. Laine!

I love coming to High Point Market because it’s full of color, style, and inspiration! It is honestly like Fashion Week for those of us in the home world. And this is the first market that I’m also dipping into the exhibitor side of the show!

Next April, I will debut my first upholstered furniture line with C.R. Laine, an absolutely amazing partner! As a start to our partnership, I designed the bistro area in the newly expanded showroom for C.R. Laine on the 2nd floor of 310 N. Hamilton. I went with a striking black-and-white palette, with bright splashes of kelly green in the chairs.

What really sets the sophisticated tone in this space is an amazing new product from Soicher Marin. Wall Couture is a customizable wall covering that is also reusable! I designed the paneled look you see here – and they have hundreds of designs in their High Point Market showroom at C&D, space 1B/1C. Wall Couture can be applied to any smooth or semi-smooth surface, so I may have to try this on some doors and shelves in the future.


I am so excited to embark on this new collaborative and creative partnership with C.R. Laine! It was thrilling to design their new Bistro as our first project together. We will be giving a few of their VIP clients some sneak peeks of the product this market. Exciting, right? And I can’t wait to unveil the designs to all of you next spring!

In the meantime, if you’re at High Point Market stop by and see the new C.R. Laine Bistro and their newly expanded showroom. Also don’t miss Soicher Marin’s Wall Couture - and be sure to notice ALL the artwork in C.R. Laine, because it is expertly created by Soicher Marin.

Until then, I’m off for more inspiration!









The Hampton Designer Showhouse: Soicher Marin

Posted by


When I was putting together my design for the Hampton Designer Showhouse, I was looking for the perfect set of prints to hang in the room.  Size, color, content.  I had a definite vision for what I wanted.  A coral background to match the stipes on the ceiling.  A chinoiserie feel to complement the F. Schumacher fabric used on the bed, wing chair and drapery.  Where did I turn?  That’s easy – Soicher Marin.  My go-to source for amazing custom prints.  Didn’t these turn out amazing?!?!

Here’s an up close look at just one of the prints in the series.  If you’re a designer, Soicher Marin has an amazing library of images.  Tell them what you want and they will work with you to make your ideas come to life!  I couldn’t do the work I do without their talent and expertise.

If you’re not a designer, they offer their standard line for purchase online.  Be sure to visit their website and check out the MANY beautiful collections from Soicher Marin!

And if you get the chance, be sure to visit the Hampton Designer Showhouse in Bridgehampton, New York.  The house will be open until September 4!
