The new John Robshaw for Cisco Brothers collection will premiere Thursday at the Cisco Home store on Melrose Avenue before hitting other retailers in September. The collaboration pairs textile designer Robshaw's soft, romantic block prints with the warm, sustainable furniture of Los Angeles-based designer Cisco Pinedo.
The new line includes the Babur Chairs shown here, beginning at $2,400, as well as a chaise, a sofa, a screen, a trunk, an ottoman, a bed and a daybed. Pieces will be available in linens and cottons as well as four Robshaw fabrics that are exclusive to the Cisco collection.
"His sensibility is very ethnic on many levels," Pinedo said, referring to how Robshaw has called upon his time in India, China, Thailand, Indonesia and points beyond to inform his prints. "I felt like there was a space for that kind of sensibility in a bigger way." It would be nice to see more people incorporate global designs at home, Pinedo said, adding, "A pillow is not a big commitment."
Fans can meet the designers and view the John Robshaw for Cisco Brothers collection from 6 to 9 p.m. June 6 at Cisco Home, 8025 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles. Robshaw will sign his book "John Robshaw Prints: Textiles, Block Printing, Global Inspiration and Interiors." Questions? Call (323) 932-1155.
