With a deep tradition of collaborating with celebrated interior designers such as Mary McDonald, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Celerie Kemble, Alessandra Branca and Timothy Corrigan, Schumacher has announced its latest designer collaboration—a line of fabrics and wallcoverings devised by Miles Redd due out next fall.
Known for dramatic, high style decorating that is rooted in classicism, Redd's new collection will feature fabrics and wallcoverings that reflect his bold use of color and pattern and his ability to mix a variety of influences.
“For the last 125 years, Schumacher has represented the best in quality and craftsmanship,” said Redd. “I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Cecil Beaton, Dorothy Draper and Paul Poiret, and thrilled to begin this partnership with such a revered fabric house.”
Although the design process is just getting underway, Redd is already working closely with Schumacher’s Creative Director Dara Caponigro (former Editor-in-Chief of Veranda magazine) on the collection.
“Miles and I have had a long history together,” said Caponigro. “I was privileged to be the first editor to publish his work and was impressed from the get-go with his artful eye and his ability to design rooms full of joy and drama but always rooted in a deep understanding of the world of decoration. It seemed only natural to ask him to design a line for Schumacher.”
“We are thrilled to work with Miles, a true arbiter of taste, and to continue Schumacher’s rich history of attracting the best in the world of design,” added Terri Eagle, President and CEO of Schumacher. “I am confident that our clients will love the collection and that it will be just as beautiful as all of his amazing work.”
Redd embarked on his interior design career after graduating from New York University, honing his skills with luminary antiques dealer John Rosselli and decorator Bunny Williams. In 1998, he opened his own design firm in New York City’s NoHo neighborhood. Redd had also served as the Creative Director of Oscar de la Renta Home from 2003 to 2013, and his work has been featured in Vogue, W, House Beautiful, Elle Décor, Veranda and Architectural Digest. He was most recently honored for the third time as one of Architectural Digest’s “AD 100” designers.
Stay tuned for additional information on the collection in the coming months.
