Ever since designer Madeline Weinrib created her first collection of cotton rugs nearly 20 years ago for ABC Carpet & Home (the sprawling six-story New York City housewares store founded by her great-grandfather), her bright, clean interpretations of traditional patterns have been a seamless fit for her family’s signature Modern Souk look.

Weinrib’s new outdoor fabrics, a dozen or so patterns inspired by her personal collection of vintage fabrics, is made of 100-percent, solution-dyed polyester and available in color ways including brown, black, and blue.

A particular affinity for blue and white (Weinrib has collected blue-and-white ceramics since she was a teenager) is in evidence:

Above: Madeline Weinrib’s new collection of outdoor fabrics  is $135 per yard for each pattern. For more information, see Madeline Weinrib.

Above: Collins Blue has a vertical repeat of 13 inches.

Above: Luce Blue has a vertical repeat of 15 inches.

Above: Sommers Blue & White has a vertical repeat of 24 inches.

Above: Blue Stripe has a 10-inch vertical repeat.

Above: To prevent a blue-and-white color scheme from looking staid, Weinrib recommends a dose of black. “Black is terribly unsentimental,” she says. “It takes away the sweetness.”

Above: Mojave Dusty Blue has a vertical repeat of 28.5 inches.
