California-based interior and furniture designer and star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators, Jeffrey Alan Marks, has signed on to work with Kravet for his very first fabric collection, set to debut in fall 2014.
“I'm beyond delighted to be partnering with Kravet on my first fabric collection,” said Marks. “Our combined focus is on creating beautiful fabrics at affordable prices. Expect to see lots of my signature beachy blues and forest greens. We've developed a number of exciting prints that are fresh, vibrant and sophisticated, wovens that have wonderful texture and depth, and a few surprises that I can't wait to start using in all my projects."
The collection will coincide with Marks’ “design by nature” philosophy, which is based on inspiration from his laid-back, California lifestyle. His vision is for the designs to exude style and luxury in perfect sync, exhibiting clean lines and classic, harmonious proportions.
"We are excited about our new collection because the casual California perspective he brings does not exist in our current product offerings," said Scott Kravet. "His original designs offer focused details that can be interpreted in various mediums either print, weave or window constructions. His color combinations are also unique and can provide an interesting backdrop to any interior. Perspective, design, color—that's what his collection is all about."
Marks started his career as a model while studying design at the Inchbald School of Design in England. He later lived in Milan and Paris, where he still draws inspiration from today. He started his own firm, JAM, Inc., based in Santa Monica, focusing on luxury homes and commercial projects.
