My New Collaboration with C.R. Laine Furniture

Posted by


I know it’s Tuesday and I know you are expecting my latest episode of Tobi TV but today I have bigger news! I am thrilled to announce that I have a VERY exciting partnership with one of my favorite upholstery companies, C.R. Laine. I will be creating a furniture collection to launch in April 2015 at the High Point Furniture Market with this amazing family-owned company that is based in Hickory, North Carolina.

My friends at the Editor at Large captured all the details about our unique collaboration perfectly, so you can read all about it here including an interview with me. And even though we have to wait until April for my collection to debut, I have been helping C.R. Laine redesign their “Bistro” in their High Point showroom so if you are a designer, come by and see their newly expanded showroom, their new cafe and say hello at market this October!  C.R. Laine and I look forward to seeing you there soon.

And for all you design-lovers out there who love my design style, I’ll be bringing you sneak peeks of our collaboration in the coming months.  And look for my C.R. Laine upholstery collection coming to retailers near you by Summer 2015.

P.S. I’ll be back with another episode of Tobi TV really soon. But check back here tomorrow for a BIG giveaway! You’re going to love it.

KATV Design Time: I’m Speaking Greek!

Posted by

Of course you already know all about my LOVE for Greek Key. To me it isn’t a trend, but a pattern that’s as classic as a Chanel suit! That’s what I talked about today, on Good Morning Arkansas!

Greek Key can be masculine and stately, but it’s also so clean and geometric and versatile!

It can give a design structure, like in the Richmond showhouse project I’ve shared with you before… (how many Greek Keys can YOU find?!)

And it is also gorgeous as a delicate detail, like on this glamorous tableskirt in my Lenox Hill tabletop design!

It makes a lovely border on these outdoor rugs!

And did someone say…Chanel?

And here’s my segment if you missed it so you can hear exactly why I love Greek Key and how to use it…

Tobi Fairley: Decorating with Greek Key.

Here are some of my past posts on Greek Key goodies, for your enjoyment!
p.s. If you love Greek Key, you should check out my Athens line of pillows and fabrics (sold by the yard) over at Tobi Fairley Home!

It’s All in the Details…

It’s always flattering to have another designer use your fabrics in their projects  – especially when it turns out looking as fabulous as this room by Shay Geyer!

She used my Athens pattern as the leading edge for these gorgeous drapery panels — proving that it really is all in the details! I love using unexpected, thoughtful touches like this to pull a room together and put an unexpected twist on a project.

While Shay used the Athens pattern in Charcoal, there are tons of colorways and pattern options that could create the same look.

View all of the fabrics in my home line.

You can read more about her work and this project in this month’s issue of Grand Luxe magazine and on her blog.

Special thanks to Shay for sharing this!

xo, Tobi

Color Combo of the Month: Flamingo & Kelly

Posted by

Hi Friends & Happy Monday!

For the past couple of months, it has been fun to share a couple of my favorite color combos with you and then some great coordinating products later in that month.

In April, I was in love with Navy & Pool and last month Ruby & White was hot. For June, I’m definitely feeling a little preppy and thought why not make it a month of pink and green…or Flamingo & Kelly to be exact.

I love this pairing because it reminds me not only of preppy patterns, but also summer — like a juicy watermelon or a strawberry margarita with lime garnish! Yum!

Of course, if you’ve taken a peek at my pillow collection, you may have already noticed that I’m pretty fond of this duo…

Skipper Pillow in Flamingo

Oh, and orange and white look pretty good with this pair, too! Don’t you think?
Stay tuned for more Flamingo & Kelly finds later this month.




Color Combo: Navy and Pool

Posted by

You know me, I love color. I mean, I REALLY REALLY love color and my recent trip to Marrakech just intensified it!! While I was researching Morocco, I found tons of gorgeous images that proves they love color, too — and lots of it! I can’t wait to recap my travels and share the experience with you, but in the meantime I wanted to share a particular color combo that seemed to emerge from my research.

After browsing sites and finding tons of rich, bold colors, I noticed that in all the architectural shots I found, I was gravitating toward a really cool combo of blues — rich navy and refreshing pool!

 For the love of mosaic tile!!!!!

What a serene palette of navy, cobalt and intoxicating shade of pool!  This brings me to my next dose of Moroccan inspiration:  the combination of a lounge and blues.  What better combination could there be?!

 I could kick back with a book and glass of wine on this lounge….just saying.

Afternoon swim here? Don’t mind if I do!!


 I just love the colors of the sky when the sun has just set….

With all of these gorgeous places and spaces, I couldn’t resist pulling some of my blue finds to share with you…
