In my own words, Knoll and Knoll Textiles is probably the best known and most asked for commercial textile company. Because of Charles and Ray Eames and Knoll’s early design innovations the company has gained a following and name recognition that can’t be matched. Their fabrics are fabulous and worth the investment. They partner with a lot of great designers to introduce new patterns and they keep re-issuing old patterns that are classic and timeless.

ABOUT Dorothy Cosonas
Dorothy Cosonas developed an interest in design at a young age — her mother was an accomplished calligrapher and architectural renderer, and her grandfather was a painter and fabric merchant. Her passions led her to pursue degrees in both fine arts and textile design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
While still in school, Cosonas interned at Unika Vaev, a contract textile firm directed by distinguished textile designer Sina Pearson. Under Pearson, Cosonas continued to develop her design sensibilities and, in 1994, succeeded her as the company’s Director of Design. In 1999 she was named Vice President of Design at Unika Vaev.
In 2005, Dorothy Cosonas came to Knoll as the Creative Director of both KnollTextiles and KnollLuxe. Her inaugural collection was awarded a Best of NeoCon Gold award, as were three of her subsequent offerings. Her work is highly influenced by her passion for fine art and international fashion. Devoted to modern design, Cosonas is known for combining clean, clear color with elegant patterns and textures.
