Christmas is almost here, and that means it’s time to treat yourself! We’ve just ordered a fresh batch of Ivan Meade’s decadent chocolate bars for the studio and for a few select shops around Victoria.
We have Pretzel and Praline, Almond and Sea Salt, Matcha Green Tea & Lime, Salted Caramel & Fleur de Sel, Dark Chocolate & Mint, and Chost Chili and Nibs. After eating all six of the unique flavours, Ivan still couldn’t decide which was his favourite. We’ve also recently added whiskey
pairings here, so if you’re the debaucherous type, let us know which is your favourite!
Custom background colours have been a huge hit for all our fabric clients, especially for interior designers wanting the perfect custom colour for their project.
One of our clients wanted to reupholster a set of beautiful Georgian mahogany dining chairs. They were family heirlooms and such a special dining set deserved the perfect custom fabric. Ivan created our newest custom background colour tierra to compliment the rich wood tones in the dining set.
Our background colours are only limited by your imagination. How will you make them your own?
These custom pillows and many more are now available at two new Canadian retail locations! They can be found at Switzer Cult Creative in Vancouver BC and Calla Design in Victoria BC.
Switzer Cult Creative will be promoting Ivan as their only West Coast fabric designer. Ivan’s complete fabric line and a selection of custom pillows will be available at their new Vancouver showroom. When you visit, peruse their exclusive furniture upholstered in Ivan Meade fabric. Maybe even rest your feet?
Calla Design also has a handful of custom pillows designed by Ivan. Say hello to Janice and Sue at their charming home furnishings store in Estevan Village!
These one of a kind pillows are made in small quantities by a local seamstress. Purchase a set while quantities last! I have my eye on the Mancha Carbon lumber pillow at Calla Design…
France, its people, and their way of life have always intrigued and inspired Meade. For the latest release of his eponymous fabric line, Meade continues his personal narrative with a distinct je ne sais quoi. To perfectly capture his vision, Meade used the Parisian influence to photograph this exciting new line in a beautiful French light.
Mariposa is an ode to Meade’s beloved mother, Maria Celia, and embraces her style of modern interpretations of old classics. The traditional toile-influenced motif when printed against a soft, Rosa background creates an unexpected beauty.
Vista Hermosa is inspired by the tile patterns in Meade’s grandparents’ neoclassical home in San Luis Potosi and is all at one geometric, feminine, and modern. Reminiscent of lace or leatherwork, it is a versatile, mid-scale pattern.
