PORT 68 Launches Licensed Collection with Scalamandré

Renowned high-end textiles house Scalamandré has partnered with lighting, accents and home decor resource Port 68 for a licensed collection of lighting, accent upholstery and decor that debuted at the October 2013 High Point Market. The Scalamandré Maison for Port 68 line was inspired by Scalamandré’s signature fabrics and wallcovering, and design refinements include handpainted porcelain, lacquer and rich gold-leafed metal appliqué.

“We are thrilled to introduce the luxurious lifestyle of Scalamandré to the marketplace with Scalamandré Maison for Port 68,” said Michael Yip, president, Port 68. “The history of such venerated patterns as Le Zebre and Jour de Juin is captured in this timeless, fresh collection. The designer rich patterns are chic and classic and it will be exciting to see the partnership grow for years to come.”

Baldwin Red Trunk / End Table

The Baldwin Red Trunk is a grand hand painted lacquer end table/ trunk, featuring the timeless Scalamandre pattern “Baldwin Bamboo Trellis” named after famed decorator Billy Baldwin. The color of rouge red is offset with the geometric golden-brown bamboo. The carved bamboo shaped base of the trunk is antiqued in gold leaf. The Baldwin pattern is hand painted on all sides. Top features a bamboo border. Interior lined in black velvet with an antiqued brass closure hinge.

Jour De Juin White Vase

One of Scalamandre’s most famous patterns, “Jour de Juin” has humor and whimsy with the surprise of butterflies, dragonflies, bees, bugs and beetles. The trellis vine embraces the casual formality with the subtle pastel color tones, accented with celadon greens. Vase holds water.

Greystone Indigo Lamp

Inspired by Scalamandre’s ikat pattern “Greystone”, our lamps are hand painted lacquer on a ceramic lamp base. This narrow 3″ depth scaled body is accented with gloss crackled ceramic side panels. Greystone pattern is hand painted on front and back of the lamp. Lucite base. Crystal ball finial.

Le Zebré Square Pendant

Dramatic and chic. The square pendant is made from Scalamandre’s iconic “Le Zebre” rouge red fabric. Includes frosted lucite bottom diffuser. 9 foot black cord.

Baldwin White Oval Planter

Named in honor of famed decorator Billy Baldwin and inspired by one of his favorite wallpapers by Scalamandre, the Baldwin oval planter is hand painted porcelain with embellishments of solid brass trellis feet. Perfect for so many uses; we love it for entertaining on the sideboard with chilled wine. Simply load the planter with crushed ice and chill your favorite beverage. It’s also proportioned well for fresh flowers and plants, or even rolled-up towels in the bath.

Steven Stolman, president of Scalamandré, said, “Scalamandré is honored to partner with Port 68 for this wonderful collection. Seeing our iconic patterns come to life in new, unexpected ways is so exciting to all of us who are part of the journey of taking America’s most revered textile house into the future.”
