The Suno Collection, influenced by the fashion world, shares its glamour and energy. A collaboration between Knoll’s luxury fabric division Knoll Luxe and Suno—a fair-trade women’s wear label based in New York—the collection includes seven upholstery and two drapery textiles translated from Suno’s most recent runway collections. Arber, an upholstery fabric printed on cotton velvet, is based on a dress from Suno’s Spring 2012 collection. Besos derives from an Indian embroidery pattern used by Suno in the fall of 2010, while a vintage Art Deco print led to Diamond Days. knoll-luxe.com
