When Departures Magazine wanted a forecast of the best fabrics and papers in the world of interior design, they asked me to seek out the latest and greatest. What follows is my roundup of vibrant fabrics and wallpapers with an artistic bent that is appearing in the current September issue. This special design issue is filled with pages exploring where design is going, who's on the go-to list to watch, what is new and worth having a looking at. Take a peek.
