Behind The Design Of This Bright, Livable Textile Collab


Tiffany McKinzie for Effe

Designer Tiffany McKinzie‘s new line of textiles and wallcoverings, recently launched in collaboration with Alice Franklin of Effe, is a study in subtle color and pattern. McKinzie gave Luxe an inside look at the beautifully livable collection, now available through EC Dicken.

Describe the designs. They were inspired by nature–water, wood and sky–with an Asian influence, of which I am particularly fond. We currently have 10 patterns in almost 40 colorways, with new ones added regularly.

Who is your customer? We designed with a slant toward a more modern rather than a deeply traditional perspective. However, the collection is universal to many styles: The scale of many of our prints leans modern while the natural theme lends a more global and eclectic feel.

What makes it unique? We did not shy away from color and pattern, with options that pair well with other fabrics on the market. We offer customization without a long wait–especially our textiles. For example, once a textile color is approved, we can provide a finished product within a standard one to two weeks.
