For This Meeting Of The Minds, A Collaboration Is Purely Material



A Dallas architect with decades of experience designing luxury hotels worldwide, Jim Looney of Looney & Associates brings a unique point of view to product design. With that in mind, Looney founded Grove Studio, an atelier specializing in product design serving the hospitality, residential and commercial industry, which recently launched the Dunleith textile collection with James Dunlop Textiles. “We often specified James Dunlop Textiles on projects and know its fabrics to be high quality and suited to our design sensibilities,” says Looney of how the collaboration came about. Here, he shares the details of the collection with Luxe.

What inspired this collection? The natural environment, classic and architectural elements found in everyday living and a take on a contemporary feel.

What does it include? Six patterns in a range of textures and patterns, with five to eight colorways available each. Each suits the hospitality and commercial markets with the elegant quality expected for residential use.

How might this collection be used? It contains a variety of fabric types and grounds for a wide range of use, from heavy-duty velvets for upholstery to lightweight sheers for drapery and even vertical applications for furniture and accessories.
