S c h u m a c h e r 's 2 0 2 1 Hobe Erwin Collection reintroduces the work of one of Hollywood's most legendary set designers during the '30s and '40s, while preserving historically accurate wallpaper designs from the era. Erwin had been a prominent New York decorator whose friendship with director George Cukor propelled his career in Hollywood, where he designed the sets for Gone with the Wind, Dinner at Eight, and Little Women. His sets were lavish and meticulously researched — for Gone with the Wind, he traveled the South and corresponded with Margaret Mitchell, author of the original novel. Schumacher collaborated with Erwin in 1942 on a line of Revival Wallpapers based on his research for the decor of fine 18th- and 19th-century American houses. The new collection features five original designs including Astral, Front Waltz, Hive Bloom, Secret Garden. Hydrangea Drape comes in new colorways. Hobe Erwin Collection, to the trade at Schumacher, Dallas Design Center, 1025 N.

Cantoni owns the Natuzzi Italia Texas franchise and hopes to open additional stores in Houston, Austin, and Fort Worth in 2022, says Michael Wilkov, Cantoni founder and CEO.

Most everything is customizable, and Natuzzi Italia's full collection can be ordered through the store.
