San Francisco-based interior designer Suzanne Tucker, principal of Tucker & Marks, focused her peripatetic vision on Africa when designing Caravan, her latest Suzanne Tucker Home fabric collection. Eight new designs, ranging from cut velvet to silk jacquard and hand-woven ikat, pay homage to the vast continent and its visual splendors: desert, animals, and jungle. Cotton velvets Duma, a cheetah-inspired pattern, and Nomad, a geometric cut and loop pile, are made in the U.S., while the other fabrics come from Europe, India, Asia. Available at Holland & Sherry at the DDB and Thomas Lavin at the PDC.
