Hilary Farr to celebrate new fabric collection with Covington at Showtime

The Hello Polly fabric, shown here on a pillow, is one of more than 60 new fabrics from Hilary Farr.

HIGH POINT — Following the October launches of her new furniture, rug and lighting collections at High Point Market, celebrity designer and television personality Hilary Farr is set to return to High Point to celebrate the launch of her new fabrics with Covington Fabric & Design during ITA Showtime, Nov. 17-20.

First teased during the launch of her upholstered furniture collection with Braxton Culler, the full collection of patterns, textures and signature prints will be on display in Covington’s eighth floor Market Square Tower showroom.

Farr, best known for her role in HGTV’s “Love It or List It” design reality show, will be on hand in the showroom throughout the semi-annual fabric market, introducing the collection to buyers and designers. She will also take part in a luncheon and meet-and-greet on Nov. 17 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the showroom.

Her new collection’s 63 unique SKUs range in assortment from sophisticated neutrals and grays to fun and fresh fuchsia, as well as black-and-white combinations.

Standouts include Wabi Sabi, described by Chari Voehl, vice president of design at Covington, as “an exceptional woven textured solid that acts as a building block within the new collection,” which is available in five color combinations. Other notable pieces include Lounge Lizard, a modern take on a textured reptile skin jacquard; Hello Polly, a digital print of parakeets perched on tropical floral vines; and Le Tigre, a print that calls on tribal flair to put a twist on a traditional animal skin look.

Across the board, Farr’s new looks are inspired by her connections to travel and causes, with prints like the Japanese landscape print Farr Away being inspired by her connections to Asian-inspired design elements.
