This funky jungle cat adds a surprising and unexpected hint of drama to the collection.

Named after the ornamental arrangement of flower beds, Parterre is a statement-making geometric. The Calypso collection features unbelievably soft and plush fabrics. Catalina is sumptuous and fluffy herringbone of thick multi-toned yarns. The variegated flecks of color make this fabric look as rich as it feels.
