Lauded for its commitment to delivering custom furniture faster than most people can pick out the perfect sofa, The Inside is serving up yet another home decor option you’ll want to add to your collection ASAP. The brand just announced its latest furniture-themed undertaking—a creative collaboration with Old World Weavers, the world-renowned luxury design house founded by iconic fashion industry maven Iris Apfel and her late husband Carl.

To commemorate Old World Weavers’ 70th anniversary, The Inside has launched a 16-fabric collection, three of which are Iris’ original patterns: Tiger, Austin Stripe and Rosetta. As for the other patterns, Old World Weavers Vice President of Design Lorraine Lang places them succinctly under the “more is more” category, an approach for which the brand’s famously bespectacled founder is known. The fabric designs are available for all types of decor, including sofas, throw pillows, chairs and beds. Favorites include the Tawny Tiger X-bench ($329); the Coral Onyx Rosetta screen ($399); the Royal Tiger bed and headboard (from $899); and the drum ottoman in Chroma Austin Stripe ($329).

The Inside’s founder and Chief Brand Officer Christine Lemieux described what the home furnishing startup expects to achieve with the collaboration. 

“When I think about the revival of gorgeous maximal design and opulent, layered interiors, Old World Weavers is top of mind. As one of the most respected luxury textile brands in the industry, Old World Weavers’ iconic patterns are rich with history and adventure. By bringing this collection into the digital age, we’re unlocking access to heritage design so that people everywhere can create the home of their dreams. Whether you’re looking for a romantic botanical ala Bois de Chen or a bold animal like the iconic Tiger that Iris discovered in an Italian mill in the 1950s, we’ve got you covered.”

Previously, we’ve seen The Inside take its design cues from menswear and made heritage fabrics more accessible when it teamed up with Scalamandré early last year.
