Coconut Grove

Vibrant and expressive coastal island hues evoke a playful feeling. Bright White and Pebble speak to optimism when paired with Blue Blaze, Persian Blue and Grass Green. Exciting and inspiring, this palette engages the adventurous at heart.

Into the Blue

Creating optic harmony, the Into the Blue Collection features monochromatic hues paired in a classic way. Traditional Navy with Chambray, Bright White and a gray-based neutral feels clean and minimalistic.

New Horizon

Inspired by vibrant sunsets and luxurious interior hues, the New Horizons Collection features monochromatic yet diverse colors that somehow complement each other. Burnt Orange and Tango pair with creamy Citrus Pearl and Mushroom for a hint of liveliness that still offers a natural elegance.

Luxe Life

Creating a sense of strength and dependability, the Luxe Life palette features industrious neutrals that are ready to work. Heavily influenced by mixed metal accents and Organic Brown, new heathered yarn introductions such as Mushroom and Sweater Gray speak to the intricacies of neutral color.

Distant Shores

This tranquil yet crisp collection evokes coastal-inspired images of seashores, fishing villages and weathered clapboard cottages. Soft Surf Blue is the anchor for this nostalgic palette and pairs well with warm Weathered Gray and Bright White. Nautical accents in Salsa give this soothing palette a splash of the unexpected.

Return to Eden

Embracing wellbeing, health and vitality, Phifer’s Return to Eden palette marks the natural transition of blue as it moves into green. Monochromatic pairings such as Spruce and Abyss are calming and seductive when paired with contemporary neutrals.

Home At Last

Soothing blues with green undertones such as Surf and Mercer pair with warm, homespun golden neutrals for a comforting embrace. Blending the past with the future, this palette is perfect for the evolving traditionalist who seeks relaxation and familiarity.
