Designer Rebuffel opens textiles workroom
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, January 6, 2013
San Francisco - Bay Area interior designer Carolyn Rebuffel has created a new company and website, Workroom C, to help customers pare down their design decisions.
"For me it's all about fabric, the purpose of which is to add creativity to a room," said Rebuffel.
Five patterns are available in 28 colors, with an additional 4 options in terms of edges for pillows for 700 potential combinations. The site is designed to lead the consumer through the process of making the decision one step at a time.
"I wanted an interface that put the customer both at ease and in the position to enjoy lingering over ideas and choices," she said.
Workroom C also has an interface that allows customers to email pictures of the room or rooms being worked on. Rebuffel and her design consult with the client and give options that in their opinion would maximize the space and/or achieve the desired impact. For those who wish to customize even further, the site also has a bespoke section that allows for more detailed and specific customization - ranging from new colors or an original pattern, to altering the scale and direction of the patterns already in play.
"I love to play with color and texture in my interior work which is something I've incorporated into my textiles. My baseline might be very traditional, but my aesthetic drives me to incorporate modern organic elements," she said.
Workroom C is now an e-commerce site. Plans call for lines to be available in select brick and mortar operations in 2013.
