Fine Line

Holy City-based designer Cortney Bishop—celebrated for creating unique, contemporary interiors—now extends a piece of that magic to the masses with her first-ever fabric collection, Harwood House. In collaboration with textile house Holland & Sherry, Cortney releases The Cardinal Collection, which embraces boldness, versatility, modernity, and originality. Inspired by her late father’s love of fine, handmade clothing, the fabrics feature a range of striking patterns⎼from houndstooths and folklore motifs to embroidery and polka dots. []

Burn to Shine
