Welcome to TGP Tidbits where we round up the latest happenings and our musings of the design industry each week. This week we take a look artist Abel Macias’ collection for Schumacher, the D. Porthault Annual Sale, and Carly Beck for The Carlyle. Written by Natalie Aldridge
Abel Macias for Schumacher
Los Angeles based painter, illustrator, and designer Abel Macias has joined forces with textile giant Schumacher for their first ever collaboration. Known for his exuberant use of print and color rooted in Mexican folk art, Macias’ work stretches the globe with clients such as Kelly Wearstler, Scotch & Soda, HBO, and now Schumacher just to name a few.
Macias’ collection combines his love of nature and everyday objects into capsule of five uplifting prints and panel sets in different color ways. The collection is well appointed and playful. I wish it had come sooner. Take a look!

The D. Porthault Annual Sale
Cue the drum roll… The D. Porthault Annual Sale has arrive! Founded by Daniel Porthault in 1920, D. Porthault began as a little lingerie boutique in the heart of Paris. At his wife Madeleine Porthault’s convincing, Porthault expanded into the untapped world of couture home linens. At the time, bed linens were simple and typically stark white, making for an opportune moment of change. Inspired by her love of fashion, Impressionist art and the gardens at Giverny, she introduced printed bed linens with dress maker-like details. An instant hit, D. Porthault has been premier purveyors of luxury linens ever since, all of which are still made in Normandy.
Once a year D. Porthault hosts their online Annual Sale, a superb moment to nab those dreamy linens you have been eyeing. Take a look at our sale favorites and shop the sale here! And you can read our Q&A with D. Porthault owner, Joan Carl, here.
Carly Beck for The Carlyle
Storied Upper East Side hotel, The Carlyle, known for its discerning guests, the legendary Bemelman’s Bar, and its old-world charm, has paired with designer Carly Beck for an exclusive collection of wallpapers. Inspired by the fabled establishment, the collection is comprised of three wallpaper prints with various colorways. Each print picks up bits pieces of iconography from the hotel and its posh neighborhood surroundings. The collection is truly darling and is now available for purchase here through The Carlyle.
