We asked three top designers about the most luxurious material they like to work with—in any room of the house
“Cashmere, cashmere, cashmere! I love the softness and versatility of Loro Piana’s Sherpas. They come in colorful yet sophisticated shades and can bring any room to life.”
Shown: Loro Piana Interiors cashmere Sherpa, A4699RS, 1 Blend Zen. Available through Loro Piana, NYC, 212-593-9663, loropiana.com.
“Silk velvet. It’s a feast for the eyes because it’s so utterly lush. Rich, dark or cool colors shimmer depending on the lighting of the room and where you place it, plus it’s great for upholstery and drapes.”
Shown: Old World Weavers Puget, CC OOSV. Available through Stark Carpet, D&D, NYC, 212-752-9000, starkcarpet.com.
“Silk carpet, which I’ve used in a client’s bedroom. She enjoys walking on it barefoot and lying on it, and playing with her kids on it, too. Plus, it has a wonderful sheen.”
