Yacht Interior Design
If you had extra special vision, you could see that those are Helio pillows on the decks of the yacht in this photo!
Ammon Hickson represents our fabrics to the trade at their showroom in the DCOTA (Design Center for the Americas) in Dania Beach, Florida. In 2009 and 2010 we worked together with Patrick Knowles Interiors to design and create custom fabrics and pillows for a 207' yacht being built in Italy. Considered to be the ISA's (International Shipyard's Ancona's) flagship yacht, the shipyard collaborated with a Rome-based exterior stylist, and interiors specialist Patrick Knowles of Ft. Lauderdale Fl, who through Ammon Hickson chose our fabrics for use on many of the yacht's sun decks and outdoor living spaces.
Featured in Yachts International magazine in October of 2010 (see photo) the story described Knowles' interest in creating "a total space of well being and fun".
Our colorful, tropical, and whimsical designs fit the bill! This project was of prime focus in our studios from June 2009, when we received the final product specs, into Spring of 2010 when the last part of the order was shipped. We produced a total of 69 pillows for the Main Deck, Portuguese Deck, and Sundeck along with 124 yards of hand printed and painted fabrics for upholstering chairs and ottomans throughout the yacht. Many specialized designs were custom created for this project including hand painted fishes, birds, and hibiscus as seen in the photos above and below.
