What's New in Showrooms

Salon Table

The luxurious and sensual quality of shagreen furniture has always appealed to Sally Sirkin Lewis of J. Robert Scott, and for many years she has collected leather furniture and items made in the 1920s and '30s from the skin of sharks and stingrays. This year Lewis introduced a small line of shagreen furniture, three tables and a chair. While the chair has shagreen only on the legs, the Salon Table is made entirely of shagreen, with a decorative inlay of bone on the apron and on the top. Smart, exotic and very tactile.

Vera Neumann was a famous mid-century textile artist, and a Vera signature on the corner of a silk scarf was as stylish as a Hattie Carnegie black dress. Two of Neumann's 1950s prints for upholstery and curtains recently were reintroduced by fabrics showroom F. Schumacher & Co. Frondoso, an adaptation of Neumannís Moon Pennies, is a lightweight silk print depicting plant motifs in six tones. Schumacherís fabrics designers created Quadrato, a geometric pattern, and a solid-color shantung silk to coordinate.
