We just can't get enough around here of Thomas Paul's fresh, snappy modern prints from Duralee. They've given our shop a needed lift, and they are clean and simple enough to mix well into traditional rooms. That's one of my complaints about a lot of modern design - the elements are great looking on their own, but those of us who don't live in a minimalist loft or Neutra house in L.A. can't easily use them. Thomas Paul has hit just the right note with a collection of fabrics that just about anyone can take home; a bit of modern punch for the classic American home. (The birds are just darned cute too).
