ARTLESS Melinda PS is a gorgeous and captivating version of one of our favorite chairs upholstered in a rich, contrasting, and luscious fabric designed by Paul Smith. The texture and complexity of the pattern, while simultaneously soft to the touch, won us over so strongly that we had to do an entire line just for the fabric.
Point by Paul Smith
Dense rayon yarns in warp and weft are secured by a fine nylon binder, forming a gridded texture reminiscent of needlepoint embroidery or traditional grospoint transport cloth. Chosen for its clarity of color, this balanced construction highlights semi-lustrous rayon yarns in a wide array of rich hues including persimmon, mustard, loden, burnt sienna, and ultramarine. Whereas the first group of eleven featured five distinct stripes, the bold colors—crimson, mandarin, citrus, grass, cyan, and cobalt—work around a single design that allows for expanses of solid color. These truly clear hues result from Point's unique construction, in which superfine nylon threads bind substantial rayon yarns with an almost metallic luster. The resulting woven structure is notable for its satisfying weight and tactile quality, as well as a gridded texture reminiscent of needlepoint.
