John Robshaw Interview

John Robshaw Shares Next Season's Color Palette and Why He Loves Block Printing

Did you catch this past weekend's John Robshaw sale at One King's Lane? His items flew off the shelf at a fast clip, and if, like me, your favorite finds sold out before you could click them into your online shopping cart, don't worry: the textile designer plans on working with OKL again in the future. John recently took the time to answer a few quick questions I had about his process and inspirations.

  • On colors inspiring him right now: "Next season, the colors I will be working with are smoky clay, white and gold. I have this smoky clay color that I put right on an unbleached white linen with gold. It will be an old gold that sort of fades and tarnishes."
  • On why block printing is a timeless technique: "I love block printing because it is spontaneous. I mess around with the blocks. I have fun and make mistakes. When I spill dyes I usually muck up the blocks, but always stumble into some new combination, thought, or idea that would not happen on a computer. I love block printing because it is hands-on and there is no way to replace that.
  • On why he chose to work with One Kings Lane: "The One Kings Lane folks are truly fanatics about the home industry and you can tell that their passion is driving their success.  They take the time to properly organize and curate sales, which I find really boosts the consumer shopping experience on One Kings Lane."

Take a look below for some of my favorite finds from John Robshaw's current line. Want to learn more about this designer? Check out this article on Elle Decor.
