MAKER: Franco Scalamandré has a great story to tell of coming to America in the 20s from Italy and making a huge success of himself. From engineer, to historic textile researcher, to major design firm and more, Scalamandré is synonymous with quality, success, and above all, historic preservation. Do take some time to read up on the phenomenal Scalamandré history here: https://www.scalamandre.com/history and a NY Times obit on Franco: https://www.nytimes.com/1988/03/04/obituaries/franco-scalamandre-89-leader-in-making-of-decorative-textiles.html
1970 Scalamandré Waterlilies Fabric Sample
An unusual 1970 Scalamandré cotton chintz, “Waterlilies” likely takes its inspiration from late 18th century wallpapers found in England and the American colonies. A repeated geometric motif depicting white lotus flowers amidst serpentine garlands.
A transcendent piece, this same print was printed at the Jouy factory in the 18th century as “Les Nenuphars,” translated as “Waterlilies.”
