At the first signs of spring appear, the pussywillow, the opening buds on the trees and bushes, the golden buttercups peeping their little yellow heads out from their winter quarter’s, we tend to have lightening of the spirit and look with disfavor on our somber winter wardrobe, and our thoughts turn to newer draperies for ourselves to keep atune with nature. And as one looks over the offerings of the textile manufacturer and the designer, one sees there is a great abundance of lovely materials, delicate colors, and simple yet elegant designs to choose from. The spring made shows that slowly a new elegance is approaching. Simplicity shows no signs of death, but severity, which is one form of it is passing.
