Celerie Kemble fabrics for F Schumacher embrace a modern look with deep traditional roots. The vibrant colors and outstanding fabric content make these fabrics well worth the money. Whether the fabrics are used for pillows or upholstery, it is guaranteed to add a splash of color and luxury to any home. 
Celerie Kemble is a woman who has lived, breathed, and eaten interior design since she was a little girl. Her childhood was spend around construction sites, antique stores, and homes designed by her mother, Mimi Maddock McMakin. Kemble’s mother founded Kemble Interiors, Inc. in 1982 which focuses on bringing comfort and beauty into the homes of her clients.

Celerie worked briefly in film production after graduating Harvard before she gave into her compulsion for design and the creation of thoughtful interiors. “I help put the person in the space. Otherwise, it’s just a space.” She has spent the past 15 years developing a portfolio that encompasses that compulsion and passion. Kemble is known for her candid nature, humor, and approachability, which is paramount in developing relationships with clients and applying their needs and wants in a design.
Kemble has been featured in J. Crew’s ‘Real Women’ ads and alongside industry leaders in Benjamin Moore’s ‘Experts’ campaign. She embraces what it means to be creative and inspiring.
We are lucky enough to carry the entire collection of Celerie Kemble Fabric! These designs are adorable for upholstery. Headboards, chairs, ottomans; you name it, its going to be super cute if its covered with this fabric. We will also be featuring her wallpaper very soon, so stay tuned!
"In life as in design, it is not perfection you should be after. There's beauty in the faded and worn, the well loved, and the sentimental...After all, life has seams. Your home should be like a loosely woven fabric of desires, memories, practical, notions, and even compromises." - Celerie Kemble

Modern Steel Dining Chair

Pin It

Looking for a modern twist for your kitchen or dining area? Well, steel dining chairs seem to be all the rage right now. I keep seeing picture after picture in my favorite design magazines and I realized how cool they really are! When paired with the right decor, a metal dining chair can really define the space.

One of my personal favorites is the Ferrer Dining Chair by Nuevo. It is the one pictured here. It is surprisingly comfortable, and looks so chic. Not only does is come in two sizes for the chairs, but it also comes in a bar stool and a counter stool.

Be bold! Its time to try something new in the kitchen anyways! These chairs will put just enough modernism into your design style to keep things fresh.
