Necessity is the mother of invention, the saying goes. So it was for Workroom C. “It came about one day when I was on the hunt for the perfect navy pattern and could not find it,” explains founder Carolyn Rebuffel. Carolyn’s career had taken her from antiques to interior design, which she continues to practice as principal designer at her eponymous firm, Carolyn Rebuffel Designs. That search for the perfect navy pattern inspired her to experiment with designs and colors, ultimately resulting in her own collection that is built around patterns that can be printed on demand, with repeats perfect for making a 20” square pillow out of a single yard.
