LAURA LIENHARD FABRICS
The key to beauty and simplicity in Laura Lienhard’s fabrics is to head outdoors. Influenced by the natural world, in every forest, meadow and beach, she finds inspiration that transcends in her fabric designs. Laura Lienhard looks to the ethereal and ephemeral beauty that encompasses nature, and then translates it to stunning textiles. Her inspiration does not end there; she also looks to the world of art and ethnic artistry paying homage to architectural elements. This is the heart of her designs; fabrics that transport to places of beauty and intrigue.
Patterns, sheers and textures, this trio of design elements lies at the center of the Laura Lienhard collection. Patterns that evoke the crashing wave at a beach, or the simple beauty of the forsythia are created in gentle earth tones that sooth. Her sheers are sensuous ripples of hemp, wools and linen mesh that captivate.
Founded 20 years ago, Laura Lienhard has used her experience attending the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. Her affinity for tapestry weaving has led her to embrace natural fibers and weaves as part of her design ethos. Today, Laura Lienhard Textiles is based out of Sausalito, California, where the beach and outdoor play a major part in her designs.
