What’s old is new — and better! Modern Color Theory, a new line of 60′s-style fabric by Robert Allen and DwellStudio, is perfecting the past. A chic, youthful collection, Modern Color Theory caputres the timelessness of mid-century modern design and gives it a reinvented, retro vibe. Its playful patterns and bold color palette take cues from abstract art and early modernism.
When I first saw this collection, I fell in love. I adore mid-century modern design and am excited to see a fabric line that captures the look of the era in an updated way.
Modern Color theory is a quirky line, offering bold color choices paired with intriguing print patterns — from whimsical animal prints and hand-drawn geometric motifs to abstract florals and more.
According to the press release, the line “draws on an arts and crafts feel taken from early abstract art, with an emphasis on intentional imperfection. For its patterns, Modern Color Theory draws Geometric lines appear to have an almost hand-drawn quality, and painterly florals blur and overlap one another like a cut-paper collage.” In an age where vintage is en vogue and handmade is hot, the collection undoubtedly totally on-trend.
It’s very clear that this creative collaboration plays off of both brands strengths. Robert Allen’s key color expertise shines through and DwellStudio’s knack for playful prints is plainly present. Shoppers and designers can only hope they’ll team up again soon!
