Marika Meyer, principal of Marika Meyer Interiors, recently announced the launch of her own line of custom fabrics, Marika Meyer Textiles, with the release of her first Spring 2017 Collection. With a Fine Arts degree specializing in painting and formal training as an interior designer, Meyer’s experiences in the studio and in designing homes inspired her to create Marika Meyer Textiles, where working in a two-dimensional pursuit of color and composition is the perfect solution for residential projects that call for one-of-a-kind patterns and designs.
When Meyer couldn’t find fabrics to fit her needs or her clients’, she decided to develop her own. Forgotten cities including Pompeii influenced Marika Meyer Textiles Spring 2017 Collection featuring patterns reflecting antiquities. This first collection includes three grounds and can be printed in any color specification. “I always want to create bespoke elements for each client,” says Marika Meyer, principal of Marika Meyer Interiors and Marika Meyer Textiles.
Meyer’s great great grandfather, who was a professor of classics and who participated in archeological digs in Asia Minor, passed down a legacy of inquisition and creativity, while her grandmother, who was an interior designer, helped Meyer develop her artistic calling. Meyer’s heritage including her grandmother’s mixing of antiques and modern pieces, which present a collected look, plays a prominent role in her residential and textile designs.
Meyer will also offer her new fabric lines to the trade. “I see the value and problem solving ability that a custom fabric offers not only to me, but also to others in the design industry,” Meyer adds. “Global travels, my fine arts background and ancestry, as well as everyday life including gardening fuel my passion for fabrics.”
Marika Meyer Textiles Fall 2017 Collection will continue the overarching theme of the first collection, which is inspiration from the past. More specifically, the Fall Collection will reflect larger scale patterns and deeper colors found in her grandfather’s antique books.
