Barbara Barry

On September 14th, as a part of Fashion Week/Fall Into Fabrics at the Design Center, I had the great pleasure of listening to Barbara Barry’s talk about her new line for Kravet. She is quite petite, poised, and funny! During her intro she informed us that she had drank way too much wine the night before at Michael Mina’s restaurant in the St. Francis, Bourbon Steak. She said she found delight in her discovery of “Melt” to help with her hangover. Definitely a different way to start out a talk on her new line.

Here are some of the things that resonated with me.

“You don’t have to be wealthy to lead an elegant life.” - Barbara Barry.
I think this quote fits so well with my slogan: attainable design, with you in mind.

She shared with us a slideshow of her trips to Asia, her line for Kravet is IndoChine and it is 2.5 years in the making. Some of the primary colors: Gold, purple, grey. She sprinkled in greens and blues. Here is her slide show, with her narrating. (The music in the background is kinda cheesy, sorry Ms. Barry...)

One of my favorite pictures - the Chinese Tea Egg.
