FROM DAILY LIFE

Elodie's first collection for HBF Textiles received the Neocon Gold upholstery award.
Elodie’s process-oriented approach has resulted in a thoughtful and elegant collection of eight modern textiles. Each unique piece showcases her ability to take everyday objects–an heirloom quilt, a utilitarian moving blanket, a favorite pair of pants and transform them into extraordinary textiles with diverse design applications. 

 
 
 

Moving Blanket - New York 

Moving Blanket  - is inspired by the simplicity of its name – a moving blanket. Designed with a chevron pattern using a matelassé structure to enhance its padded construction, this elegant reinterpretation of a classic material features both large- and thin-stitched lines inspired by artist Sol Lewitt’s drawings and focuses on contrast. Available in 9 colors.

Foundation - Gravel

Foundation - is subtle grid of boucle rayon threads discreetly pop out, evoking a feeling of a distressed velvet rug that grows increasingly beautiful with time. The depth of this solution-dyed, recycled-polyester, ring-spun chenille gives Foundation a sumptuous tactile quality, as well its bleach-cleanable properties. Available in 4 colorways.

Dot Structure - Grey & Red

Dot Structure - A Turrell exhibition at the Guggenheim left Elodie keenly focused on optical illusions. Combining this with inspiration the work of Buckminster Fuller, she began to play with layers of patterns, depending on the contrast level of the colors specified, the pattern’s negative space can vary in prominence. Constructed of indoor/outdoor-suitable Sunbrella yarns, this fabric is bleach cleanable. Available in 9 color ways.

Twist - Black & White

Twist - is a soft, comfortable fabric reminiscent of a favorite old, tried-and-true sweater you would never part with, is at once both elegant and nubby. This textural combination includes acrylic/cotton for wool-like bulk, linen for fine texture and polyester for a twist of strength. Available in 9 color ways.

Bars & Braids - Sovereign Grey

Braids & Bars - Inspired by felt pillows adorned with ribbons, braids and hand-stitched bars that Elodie crafts in her studio, the new Braids and Bars fabric is the designer’s woven translation of these creations. Available in 9 colorways.

Forge - Steel

Forge - Imagined as metal-mesh furniture covering, Forge mimics the high-tech fabrics that Elodie uses in her fiber installations. Forge’s colorations reflect metallic hues – gold, pewter, platinum, copper, silver, nickel and steel. This Sunbrella-certified performance fabric features vinyl-coated yarns, which are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Available in 7 colorways.

Remember - After visiting a  mill, Elodie found herself moved by the almost-photographic detail level that the mill could achieve. Based on personal memories – her wedding dress, her son’s blanket, a favorite pair of trousers – her new Remember fabric reflects a woven interpretation of these materials. Available in black & white.

Remember Houndstooth - A pull-out design from Elodie’s Remember fabric, is enlarged 200 percent to create an all-over, large-scale, classic black-and-white houndstooth. It can stand alone or work in coordination with Remember. Available in black & white.
