New York, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
MK Collection, the exciting new fabric line founded by designer Melissa Kirkpatrick, is pleased to announce distribution through Jerry Pair in New York City and South Florida. MK Collection joins the list of renowned brands including Dedar, Jerry Pair Leather and Jim Thompson represented by the showroom.
“For more than 40 years, Jerry Pair has distinguished itself as a vital resource for the world’s leading interior designers,” Kirkpatrick says. “We are honored to be included as a source in their lovely New York and Florida showrooms, and grateful to have such an esteemed partner whose passion for beauty and fine artisanship is so closely aligned with our own.”
Founded in 2011, MK Collection includes an extensive array of exquisite fabrics and trimmings designed by Kirkpatrick and sourced with the world’s most venerated mills and artisans. The wovens are made by a third-generation, family-run mill in Italy, while the prints are hand-screened and printed on the world’s finest Belgian linen. The line takes its design cue from the lush imagery found in the textiles, pottery, jewelry and ironwork of the Art Nouveau period. The perfect balance of color, pattern, material and texture is signature of each fabric.
“From her gorgeous wovens and prints to her new trimmings collection, Melissa has a comprehensive vision of what a fabric line can be,” says Dan Cahoon, CEO of Jerry Pair.“ Her philosophy marries perfectly with what we do here at Jerry Pair, which is to give designers all the tools they need to create the ultimate interior.”
About Melissa Kirkpatrick
Born in Georgia and inspired by her artist grandmother, Melissa Kirkpatrick obtained her degree in printmaking at the University of Georgia, which led her to a career in interior design. Melissa also served as a consultant for the window treatment company Smith & Noble, where the process of discovering and editing fabrics inspired her to create her own line of fabrics. “As I worked with great fabric houses in Europe, I discovered an endless supply of textures and fabrics to marry with my designs,” she says. “I knew my passion for art had found its home in fabrics.”
