Distinctive and exotic Indian Zag Print was derived from a fabric document Rheinstein acquired in Delhi. She updated an original 18th century French silk brocade, found in tatters on a Louis XVI chair, by printing the motifs on linen in chic muted grays. Classic Clarendon Print, reinterpreted by Rheinstein in Lee Jofa’s Heritage Collection, reappears here in two luscious color ways printed on glazed chintz. Inspired by an 18th century resist print document, Delft Pom Print captures the original fabric’s timeworn character. Mimi Embroidery features a dramatic tree-of-life pattern based on English needlework. The multi-colored documentary color way embroidered on a 100 percent linen ground cloth is accompanied by three new colorations on a linen and cotton blend. Also embroidered on natural linen, Quiet Garden offers charming floral nosegays. Winding Way is an embroidered design adapted in a larger scale from a vermicelli design from Rheinstein’s first collection. Gore House Print is a reproduction of a sinuous floral Provencal fabric from the 19th century. Presented on a fine cotton ground cloth, Brecy Print was inspired by an 18th century silk warp print of cascading flowers and vines. Rheinstein’s successful Garden Rose Print has been revisited in a new slate blue and mink color way. The versatile weaves in the collection include Striking Stitch, a Bargello flamestitch design woven with heavy cotton yarns, and Petite Pom, a highly useable jacquard featuring a small-scaled pomegranate motif. Line Stripe is an elegant ticking stripe woven in a linen and silk quality. Two favorites from her inaugural collection, City Stripe and Glazed Silk, are revisited in Rheinstein’s updated color palette. Library Mohair is a dense mohair velvet enhanced by a lustrous panne finish. Woven in a casual cotton construction, Courtenay is modeled on an authentic Provencal check. Produced in France, Lexington Tweed features a marled striae effect in a viscose and linen blend. Beatriz, an ikat design woven in Scotland of wool and linen yarns, is a bold and dramatic statement yet subtle in its washed color combinations.
Rheinstein’s approach to design is elegant sophistication interpreted in her quiet and relaxed approach that is reflective of her Southern roots and California lifestyle. Her Hollyhock II fabrics are a stylish and understated way to add comfort and freshness to a room. The collection is now available in Lee Jofa showrooms across the country.
