When home fashion brand Kravet Couture set out to design its latest Modern Tailor collection, it turned to Bethesda-based interior designer Kelley Proxmire ( as its muse. “I’m honored to have a fabric and wallpaper named after me,” says Proxmire, who regularly infuses Kravet’s textiles and wallcoverings into her designs. Celebrating its 100th year, the collection pays homage to Kravet’s origins, when founder Samuel Kravet arrived in New York as a tailor. In a nod to those fashion-house roots, Kravet also drew inspiration from the runway with a focus on bespoke tailoring. “We designed Proxmire to emulate a large-scale cable weave as in your favorite sweater, executed in a special applique technique,” says Kravet Couture Design Director Lisa Masino. Proxmire’s fabric is available in ivory/noir and linen, with the wallpaper featured in gilt, ink, peacock and platinum. The Washington Design Center at Franklin Court, 1099 14th St. NW, DC,
