Match Fac­tor


Town & Country (Philippines) - - INVALUABLE PATTERN RECOGNITION -

Co­or­di­nat­ing walls and up­hol­stery is a ven­er­a­ble tra­di­tion. Louis XIV did it by the acre at Ver­sailles; French heiress and novelist Louise de Vil­morin, who wrote Madame

de…, fa­mously did it in a blue flo­ral to the draw­ing room of her château. This year fash­ion de­sign­ers are giv­ing their col­lec­tions the same treat­ment. It’s a tightrope walk, though. Too much and it feels matchy, too lit­tle and an op­por­tu­nity is lost. As Robert Rauschen­berg said, “Hav­ing to be dif­fer­ent is the same trap as hav­ing to be the same.”
