The custom fabrics, created by the 100-year-old Swiss textile manufacturer Filtex, come in dusty pine green, Venetian red, sunflower yellow and cornflower blue. Checks range in size from postage stamp to cocktail napkin, and cover billowing window drapes, upholstered scroll-leg chairs and the curtains around oversize wrought-iron four-poster beds.
