L ike her soothing interiors, V i c t o r i a H a g a n 's n e w collection for The Shade Store takes cues from nature, with warm earth tones and cool blues and grays evocative of memorable landscapes. She asks us to imagine curtains billowing in a soft breeze on a lazy afternoon, or the sun and moon reflecting on the ocean at different times of day. Her draperies, roman shades, and cornices add a breezy touch to windows in lightweight linen, stripes, and weaves. The collection comes in six materials and 24 colors.

AF Home, Dallas Design District, 377 Howell St., Rebecca Sherman T om Faulkner's furniture is sleek, sculptural, and often boundary- pushing in its use of materials and unique forms. He credits his early years at Chrysalis Records in London for igniting the creativity that birthed his first piece of furniture, a coffee table decorated with spray paint and stencils. He left the music business to start his own company, then fell in love with metalworking in 1995. Inspired, he built a furniture collection using bronze and steel; many pieces now incorporate marble, timber, glass, leather, and plaster. It's all handmade at his workshop in Wiltshire, England. Faulkner's newest collection, Papillon, riffs upon the bended limbs of the Joshua tree and features metal bases with ombré- effect finishes and glass tops with iridescent c o a t i n g s . His Papillon console table won a top award at the NYCxDesign Aw a r d s i n May. To the trade at David S u t h e r l a n d S h o w r o o m , Dallas Design Center, 1025 N.
