Draped in Draper

By Emily Anderson, Allied Member ASID
One of Dorothy Draper's great strengths as a designer was her ability to create layers of pattern. She was a master of scale and color. And she certainly wasn't afraid to mix things up.
Carleton Varney, the President of Dorothy Draper & Co., Inc. has made it possible for everyone to own a little piece of the Draper legacy. Draper inspired fabrics, wallcoverings and rugs are available. It's no surprise, that many of the patterns and colors still feel fresh and current after all these years.
Draper's designs aren't for the faint of heart, a little could go a long way. These fabulous fabrics are available through the trade at Carlton Varney by the Yard.
