Amy Butler’s *New* Lotus Collection

January 17, 2007

I’m such an Amy Butler fan, she is the one designer that I’m longing to meet one day. I’d love to sit down with her, tour her studio, and just chat about her career and where on earth she finds the ideas behind her textiles, because with each season, her new fabrics are even stronger than the last. This is from the latest collection called Lotus. Aren’t these beautiful?

I can’t help but think that the fabric used for the apron below would make the most lovely curtains (center image)…

In the meantime, here’s some more eye candy from Ms. Amy…

    Aren’t they gorgeous?! I have a chair that I’d like to recover in one of her fabrics.

    I’ve known AB for a long time- way before she began this dream come true of designing fabric and patterns. I tell you- she has always had a ‘knack’ for creating a beautiful life; it comes easily to her. She’s also always been very disciplined about her work, and that’s how her dream’s become a reality that we can all enjoy. Props too- to her wonderful husband Dave, for all that he does to make her brand design a mirror of Amy.

    bolt – that’s near that you “knew her when” and the nice things you had to say about her. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us. :)

    anon – i think most of her fabrics would make beautiful chair covers, they are great.

    angel – thank you, look forward to seeing you again!
