On Wednesday, November 17, Morris & Co., which this year celebrates its 160th anniversary, hosted editors and designers for an intimate lunch at Bobo in Manhattan to celebrate the launch of its latest collection, Simply Morris. Interior designer Lindsey Coral Harper shared her carefully chosen edit of signature fabrics and wallpapers with mood boards and styled photography of the collection in her own home. Then, guests were encouraged to get hands-on and create their own mood boards with a variety of fabric and wallpaper samples.
Twenty-six guests enjoyed the luncheon, including Dennis Scully, Kathryn Given, Madeline O’Malley, Jill Sieracki, Melissa Feldman, Sarah Shelton, Audrey Margarite, Lisa Frantz, Tina Ramchandani, Michael Tavano and Will Brinson of House of Brinson.
“We were delighted to introduce the modern color palette of iconic designs from Morris & Co. with the Simply Morris collection to editors and designers,” said Beth Holman, president of Morris & Co.’s parent company, Zoffany. “It was inspiring to see our guests create their own interpretation of Fresh Maximalism and have a little fun.”
