John Rosselli & Associates’ annual Festival of Fabrics is becoming the go-to approach for showcasing fall collection launches to much fanfare. The showroom at the D&D once again invited emerging designers to collaborate with their wallpaper and fabric partners to design travel-inspired tablescapes highlighting the new collections during Fall Market. Each tablescape transported viewers to far off destinations from Italy to Thailand, while trunks lined in textiles and floating hot air balloons showcased the intricate details, texture, and depth of the new patterns. We are already planning some household redesigns. Explore the tablescapes of these talented interior designers and the latest collections available at John Rosselli & Associates.

Trifon’s recent trip to Italy ignited the inspiration for the “Under the Tuscan Sun” style tablescape draped in Fleurons d’Helene new Shalimar design, a floral treasure trove. “I imagined Marella Agnelli and Bunny Mellon picking me up in a wicker-seated fiat jolly to drive into the countryside for a glorious, maximalist picnic,” expressed Glynos “We should all dream, right?”
Raoul Textiles’ Fall 2019 collection takes inspiration from Europe and Mexico, with a bright mix of small-scale florals and versatile wovens. Lizzie Bailey & Laura Stanley of Story Street Studio took inspiration from the fabrics painterly quality that reminded them of an Édouard Vuillard painting. The result was a French artist’s studio, filled with layers of collected textiles and objets, as they said “a gloriously haphazard, colorful tableau.”
A Persian Spice Market situated in the center of the showroom brought a feast for all the senses with a plethora of Lisa Fine patterns and authentic Persian spices. “We decided to recreate a scene from the Grand Bazaar in Tehran. The spice market theme not only allowed us to depict a colorful and textural setting but also to showcase the many and varied patterns Lisa Fine Textiles offers,” said Liu. “We intentionally picked a different pattern for each of the baskets, hanging spices and trunks to highlight the depth and breadth of the line.” We could almost hear the busy noises of a market in the background.

John Robshaw’s block printed textiles are wildly at home in this Thailand temple concept from Anthony Gianacakos who said, “I wanted to create an abstract temple structure and add layers of hand embroidery details with black cording to make it graphic. Layering in hand-strung flowers and lush plants and leaves to create a festive oasis.”
Schuyler Samperton Textiles’ new Bengal Stripe and Woodley were inspired by antique Indian textiles and combine two of Schuyler’s favorite looks – the classic and the Bohemian. Here they are depicted in a South African Sundowner scene crafted by Chauncey Boothby. “I was inspired by Schulyer’s beautiful Bengal Stripe and thought that pattern lends itself perfectly to a South African theme,” says Boothby. It’s a perfect scene we’d love to see at the end of a game drive or layered in a Safari-inspired interior.
Historic English hand-printed wallpapers from Adelphi Paper Hangings were a delightful decoration for these rose-filled flower boxes. The tablescape by Lilly Bunn transported us to a glorious English garden room complete with delicate designs in vibrant colors.
