The roots of local interior designer Nadia Watts’ first fabric collection go back more than a century: her great-great-grandfather Louis Comfort Tiffany (yes, from this Tiffany family) created stained glass, vases and lamps for their iconic design house. Watts’ new collaboration with Kravet pays homage to the vibrant hues — think chartreuse, teal, and fuchsia — found in Tiffany’s collectibles. Marrying vibrant colors with graphic patterns and tactile fabrics, Watts’ textiles prove that talent runs in the family. Launch summer 2022, kravet.com
