For David Easton, the starting point for his first outdoor collection was Turkey, and all the wonderful riches that it has to offer. Istanbul has been a cross roads of great trading routes for centuries, and consequently melds so many wonderful design elements. For centuries, tradesmen have adapted their own sensibilities with trading partners to create a variety of goods that would sell at home and abroad, and still do today.
Easton’s collection hints at many design elements that can be found in Turkish design today and throughout history. Updated color palettes and simplified motifs make the designs easily flow from interior to exterior spaces. Like many designers, he finds his clients requesting fabrics that are serviceable for areas with high traffic, and thus require durable, cleanable fabrics. As a result, this collection applies a more subdued approach to color and pattern, making it ideal for both indoors and out.
