Anticipation is mounting for this year’s Nantucket by Design—an homage to design artistry and the very essence of Nantucket itself! Melding creativity, culture, and expert craftsmanship, the event exudes sophistication as it pays tribute to the island’s illustrious heritage. Now entering its ninth year, Nantucket by Design illuminates the spectrum of design, reaffirming its dedication to preserving Nantucket’s legacy while supporting the Nantucket Historical Association.

Themed ‘Craftsmanship,’ this year’s event guarantees an immersive journey, offering four days brimming with captivating discussions, enlightening panels, and hands-on workshops. Drawing design luminaries from across the globe, the occasion amplifies the island’s historic charm. Notable highlights on the docket include an exclusive opening night party at a local’s private haven, a design luncheon featuring the esteemed Aerin Lauder and Mark D.

Marvelous Moiré

Moiré is currently experiencing a resurgence, much to our delight. Derived from the French verb “moirer,” meaning “to produce a watered textile by weaving or pressing,” it boasts an unpredictable rippling pattern. A longstanding fashion staple, it has graced regal courts and modern ballrooms for centuries, remaining a timeless addition to interior spaces. Traditionally crafted from silk, its inherent sheen enhances its water-like allure.

In recent months, we’ve witnessed the revival of this historic and extravagant fabric in both interiors and fashion. This resurgence may be attributed to a contemporary fascination with classic style or even the aesthetic associated with affluence—think “old money style.” Another contributing factor could be modern production techniques that eliminate the need for expensive silk. Viscose has now become the preferred material for moiré, undergoing a process involving moistening and calendaring through patterned rollers under high temperature and pressure, resulting in a glossy-matte appearance. This not only enhances its appeal but also its durability, making moiré an ideal choice for upholstery and wall coverings. It brings opulence and refinement to spaces without straining budgets.

We’re enamored with the delicate yet glamorous essence of moiré. It exudes a solid sophistication while offering a hint of intrigue with its distinctive wood-like grain. Check out the video below for a fascinating glimpse into the process.
