Harlem Toile de Jouy (and More) by Sheila Bridges for The Shade Store

February 24, 2021

NYC-based interior designer Sheila Bridge’s joyful, kinetic Harlem Toile de Jouy—her take on the traditional French toile patterns from the 1700s— became an instant classic when she introduced it a while back. “This design, which lampoons some of the stereotypes deeply woven into the African American experience, has been featured in The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Museum of Art and Design in New York City, and the Musée de la Toile De Jouy in Jouy-en Josas, France,” she says; “it’s also included in The Cooper Hewitt’s permanent wallpaper collection.”

Now The Shade Store is offering the iconic print—as well as four additional designs by Bridges (Houndstooth, Ikat, Florentine, and Porringer)—all available as roller shades.

Here’s a look:
