Do you recall Quadrille’s stylish ad campaigns from the 1970’s and 1980’s? I don’t think there was a single one that didn’t captivate me. Aside from loving almost every pattern and colorway they design there was something personal and special about the vignettes they created for their print ads. Recently I introduced a feature on my blog titled Favorite Vintage Ads Friday, where each week I post one of my favorite ads from primarily the 1970’s and ’80’s. Revisiting the dynamic room settings they created for their ads made me wonder why they no longer publish them, so I visited their website to see if they still embrace the same magic that imbued those favorite ads of mine from decades past. From their website’s cover photo I think you will agree that the magic is still alive. In this tropical-inspired room designer Carolyne Roehm used Quadrille Bromonte Reverse on the sofa and China Seas Aqua IV for the slipper chairs against a Windsor blue background accented with exuberant plaster-white-painted furniture and a Chinoiserie-style mirror. It’s fresh, elegant and playful – a perfect setting for relaxing or high-style entertaining. Quadrille remains a favorite inspiration, year after year, decade after decade.
