KnollTextiles Launches the 2016 Collection of Knoll Luxe by Dorothy Cosonas

Knoll Luxe 2016 New York, NY—KnollTextiles is thrilled to introduce a new Knoll Luxe collection. Using the runway as her muse, KnollTextiles Creative Director Dorothy Cosonas' Luxe collections are high fashion for interiors. Each launch explores material, construction and color. The textiles in Luxe are woven with natural yarns such as cotton, linen and wool.

The crave-worthy Knoll Luxe collection fills a need for rich solids and textures, along with designers' desire for pattern and color. The thoughtful and harmonious color work consistent throughout the collection belies the fact that each of the six patterns are woven at different mills across the world.

The 2016 Knoll Luxe collection includes five upholstery fabrics (two patterns and three textures) and a 100% wool drapery.



Knoll Luxe 2016 Jasmine is an embellished large-scale multi color up the roll stripe. Four embroidery techniques are utilized to capture an artisanal aesthetic. The palette ranges from neutrals with softer tones to high contrast combinations.
