Notes from the Field: Company C

For years I have had a love affair withÂ Company C rugs, always dazzled by their fabulous designs for the floor. So I was thrilled last fall when I started working with Company C as the stylist for this spring 2012 catalog.
Working with photographer Joe Lamere and Chris Chapin and her CC team, my job was to style the new line and make it look stunning in an empty home location we found in Rye, N.H.
Chris and Walter Chapin started Company C in 1994 with rugs as the first product, later adding gorgeous bedding and pillow accessories, but this season a much bigger picture emerged as she added her new furniture line of sofas, chairs, custom fabrics, headboards and more fantastic home accessories.
With the new line of furniture and custom fabrics, you can now achieve the Company C style, designing the entire room from the floor up.
Fearless is the word that comes to mind when describing Chris’s ability to design with color and patterns. A large selection of custom fabrics is at your fingertips to mix and match with the upholstered pieces. I loved creating this cascade of fabrics that shows some of the great choices.

Chris designed this group as a crisp blue and white summer story. The gray-blue textured linen sofa plays so nicely off the patterned Greek key rug. I love the clever addition here of the gray-patterned fabric on the side chairs to bring it all together.
