Barry Lantz Debuts “Canvas to Cloth” Fabric Line with Kravet
Barry Lantz recently introduced his first collection with Kravet Inc. Inspired by the loose hand of an artist’s brushstroke and ink blotting artwork, Canvas to Cloth is an on-trend collection of prints and complementary solid wovens to suit a myriad of casually elegant interiors.
Each print is named after an important woman in Lantz’s life and captures their unique essence. GOLDIE, Lantz’s grandmother and the stand-out pattern in the collection, is an ikat interpreted into a kaleidoscopic design, and is based on one of Lantz’s paintings. MANDERS is named after Lantz’s daughter and design partner at Lantz Collective, Amanda, who he credits as his biggest inspiration.
“Without Amanda’s design influence, the collection would not be what it has become,” says Lantz.
The other prints, SHERLEE, TRACY and LEESA, are all reminiscent of Lantz’s style of art.
“Once the patterns were chosen, connecting the pattern to the person was easy,” says Lantz. “Each pattern truly expresses my feeling for each of the women I chose to personally recognize.”
Canvas to Cloth features a soothing range of watercolors, offering the feeling of an artistic airbrush quality on breezy, fresh linens.
“The colors are soft with intention, implied but with deliberation, to make a statement in an interior,” says Lantz.
Hues are clean, bright and fresh, creating an effervescent ambiance in an interior. Coordinating plains and lustrous textures complement the intriguing prints for a well-rounded collection.
In 2018, the Indiana Design Center featured Barry Lantz as the LUXE Design Showcase’s honorary guest along with Thom Filicia. Lantz was introduced by Kravet’s EVP of marketing and director of strategic branding and marketing, Beth Greene, who shared in the excitement about Lantz’s upcoming collection. Lantz then participated in a fun and lively interview with WTHR’s Julie Moffitt. You can watch the event’s highlight video below.
