A Collector's Eye
Collecting and curating is a way of life for Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke, the design duo behind esteemed firm Madcap Cottage. For their second collaboration with Robert Allen @ Home, the designers present a vibrant collection full of their signature wit and whimsy but with an added dose of far-flung glamour inspired by their own travel adventures. Patterns are hand-drawn and echo those from the 50s and 60s. Exotic toiles, splashy florals, stunning geometrics and lyrical embroideries mingle to create a transporting, riotous mix of color that lends itself to numerous applications.
Each fabric plays well with our debut collection, Into the Garden. We sought to establish a connectivity between the two.”
Into the Garden
The premier collection by Madcap Cottage for Robert Allen @ Home offers a verdant array of oversized florals, cascading foliage, knockout neutrals and exquisite wovens—layered with elegant embroideries and coordinating geometrics. Bright, peppy hues like pool blue, rhubarb pink and sunny daffodil, rendered in dramatic scales and style-forward patterns, seamlessly play off each other to form a whimsical garden that will transform any space into a lush sanctuary.
