Sisters Joanne and Marie-Clair have launched Lara Grace
Collections a range of designer curtain fabrics to give
new ideas and inspiration for the home.
Whilst sourcing designer fabric for their new interiors
showroom, it soon became apparent to Joanne and Marie Clair
that there was a void in the market for a range of classic
furnishings complementing each other, but not so expensive
that they could not be enjoyed by all. So, they set about
putting together the Lara Grace Collections. The designer
fabrics they have chosen have a strong Anglo-French feel
and this is no accident. Joanne and Marie-Clair grew up
spending summers in the Cathedral town of Chartres with their
French Grandmother, and wanted the collection to remind them
of the time they spent exploring the medieval streets, markets
and chic boutiques.
To keep Lara Grace Collections at a reasonable price a
website was launched in the autumn of 2005 to sell their
designer fabric direct to the public. The idea for the website
was for it to be like a glossy brochure, hence the abundance of
lifestyle shots which are there to give you an idea of how the
designer fabrics can used and put together.
