Peter fasano's cus­tom creations

Domino - - DECORATING -

For over 30 years, tex­tile guru Peter Fasano has been the go-to in­dus­try name for hand­crafted cloths, prints, and high-end wall cov­er­ings. In the late 1970s, af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Par­sons School of De­sign and work­ing for dec­o­ra­tor maven Dorothy Draper, Fasano launched his name­sake line of hand-painted fab­rics to the de­light of no­table in­te­rior tastemak­ers like Hal­ston and Mark Hamp­ton. In 1990, he left New York City for Great Bar­ring­ton, Mas­sachusetts, to start his eco-friendly silk-screen­ing stu­dio. Here, along with his team of 16 employees, Fasano creates one-of-a-kind ma­te­rial mas­ter­pieces—in­clud­ing his lat­est col­lec­tion of pat­terns made from tra­di­tional In­dian wood­blocks—for clients like Judd Apa­tow, Tiger Woods, and the White House. “So much of what gets done is a col­lage of our col­lec­tive ideas, tri­als, and er­rors,” Fasano ex­plains. “It’s a true weave of all our work.”
