Brentano Launches Spring 2009 Doodle Collection
New Textiles Celebrate Whimsical Colors and Patterns


Crumpled pages of a new sketchbook. Favorite pens sitting untouched - Brentano Design Director Iris Wang knows the difficulty of forcing inspiration.

For Brentano's spring 2009 Doodle collection, Iris looked to the moments spent daydreaming, drawing in the margins. In these unconstrained sketches, she saw the potential for her new collection. By embracing the playful wanderings of the mind, the Doodle collection blends whimsy with function and beauty with fun.

Combining a variety of eye-catching colors, saturated earth tones and soft neutrals with a range of subtle patterns and bold graphic designs, the 21 textiles of the new collection are sure to draw attention in residential and contract environments alike.
