New York-based designer Michael Devine studied art history in Paris and worked as a style editor in New York City before launching his own eponymous fabric line in 2002. His patterns are a clean, contemporary take on traditional French and European designs; he creates the original stencils by hand and has the textiles printed locally (for showrooms carrying the line, go to Michael Devine). For more information on Michael Devine and his boutique in Kinderhook, go to Michael Devine Home. Prices for the fabrics start at $125 per yard.
